Leicester City are set to face Southampton in the semi-final of the FA Cup on Sunday at Wembley.

And ahead of the match here are the latest injury updates from the Foxes.

Caglar Soyuncu has missed the last two matches, defeats to Manchester City and West Ham, after testing positive for Covid-19 while on international duty with Turkey.

The centre-back flew out of Istanbul airport back to the UK on Sunday, ready for this weekend’s historic encounter at Wembley.

James Maddison returned from an ongoing hip injury in the loss against Man City on Saturday, playing the final 18 minutes of the game.

The midfielder was in contention to play against West Ham, but the Covid breach meant he stayed at home. Head coach Brendan Rodgers confirmed that he will though be in contention for selection against Southampton.

Ayoze Perez was one of the players left at home for the trip to the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon after a breach of Covid protocols earlier in the week.

However, the midfielder will be back in contention for the game against Southampton.

Hamza Choudhury was the third member of the squad to be withdrawn from selection due to the breach, with the midfielder watching the action from home.

Like Maddison and Perez, the 23-year-old will be available for selection for the trip to Wembley.

Cengiz Under suffered a thigh injury in training just before the win over Brighton and is expected to miss the match against West Ham.

Wes Morgan’s back injury has kept him out for a couple of months now, however, the captain was not included on the list of injured players against the Hammers, he was again not included in the matchday squad.

Harvey Barnes underwent a surgery after a “part of the patella separated in the knee”. He was diagnosed with a six-week lay-off after the injury, which would see him returning to training in mid-April.

James Justin has undergone surgery on an ACL injury. His recovery will be a long one, and he is not expected to be close to a return until November.

Rodgers has confirmed that the defender’s leg is out of a brace, which shows good progress.
