James Maddison (hip) and Ben Chilwell (foot) are “big doubts” for the trip to Arsenal but Brendan Rodgers did say the Foxes will “give them every chance” to recover ahead of Tuesday’s game.
There was no word on Ayoze Perez, however, so it is assumed that the knock he took to his ankle on Saturday hasn’t amounted to anything serious.
Rodgers rolled out a 3-4-1-2 against Crystal Palace at the weekend and could continue with that system against Arsenal, with Perez, Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy all linking up well in attack.
Dennis Praet, Nampalys Mendy or Hamza Choudhury could perhaps be brought in at the expense of Perez alongside Youri Tielemans and Wilfred Ndidi in midfield if Rodgers wishes to proceed with caution, while Harvey Barnes, Demarai Gray and Marc Albrighton are further attack-minded options for the Leicester boss to consider either centrally or out wide if he reinstates a formation that incorporates wingers.
Albrighton actually played at both right and left wing-back during that win over the Eagles and is an option on either side, with James Justin and Christian Fuchs the more natural alternatives on those flanks.
Justin had originally been deployed as the right-sided centre half on Saturday but moved further up the wing to allow Ryan Bennett to make his City league debut alongside Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans, so the on-loan Wolves stopper could be in line for his first Premier League start since his switch of allegiance in January.
