Leicester City will be without six players against Manchester United on Sunday.

United travel to the King Power Stadium with both sides aiming to book their place in next season’s Champions League. The Red Devils will guarantee their spot in the top four if they avoid defeat against the Foxes.

Leicester head coach Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Marc Albrighton will be the only injury returnee for the upcoming clash. James Maddison (hip), Ben Chilwell (ankle), Christian Fuchs (hip), Daniel Amartey (foot) and Ricardo Pereira (knee) will all be unavailable while Caglar Soyuncu misses out due to suspension.

“We’ve had a really good week,” Rodgers said during his pre-match press conference. “The guys rested for a few days, which I think we needed.

“We’ve had a good week’s training. Our first free week. We arrive fresh into the game. It’s be virtually the same squad. We’ll be ready.

“Albrighton is back. He’ll have a late fitness test, but he should be back.”
