Leicester v West Brom

Leicester City will be aiming to consolidate their position at the summit of the Premier League standings when they welcome West Brom to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Foxes maintained their two-point lead over second-placed Tottenham after recording a last-gasp 1-0 victory over Norwich City on Saturday, while the Baggies returned to the winning trail after coming out on top against Crystal Palace in a five-goal thriller at The Hawthorns.

In team news, Leicester will have to make do without the services of influential midfielder N’Golo Kante (hamstring).

However, full-back Danny Simpson returns to contention after serving a suspension.

For West Brom, James Morrison remains on the treatment table as he continues to battle with a hamstring injury.

Chris Brunt is expected to miss out with a knee injury, but could return against Manchester United on Sunday.

Defender Jonny Evans faces a late fitness test as he looks to shrug off a hamstring problem in time to feature against the Premier League leaders.
