Who’s Available?

Striker Ched Evans could make his 400th career appearance in this fixture.

Opposition Focus


Leicester City sat back on Friday night and no doubt enjoyed watching Queens Park Rangers' 4-0 demolition of Leeds United, which sealed an instant return to the Premier League for the Foxes.

Having had a huge lead at the top of the table earlier in the campaign, automatic promotion seemed an inevitability for Leicester City, but a mixed run earlier this year allowed the chasing pack to close the gap.

Enzo Maresca’s side, in their first campaign back in the Championship following relegation, have shown their quality though, and an incredible 5-0 victory over Southampton in the week saw them take a huge stride towards the top flight, and clinching the title will now be their main goal.

Follow The Action

Fans can watch this match live on Sky Sports, and because of the selection to be shown live on TV, the game cannot be streamed on iFollow in the majority of regions worldwide.

Live commentary is available as usual, though, and you can buy an audio match pass here.

Extensive coverage can also be followed across the club’s social media channels and here on the website.
