Missing Players and team news:
Leicester will again be without the services of Harvey Barnes and James Justin on Monday due to knee injuries, while Wes Morgan is still struggling with a back problem. The Foxes are otherwise in good shape, though, and there are not expected to be many changes from the side that took to the field against West Brom on Thursday evening. Ricardo Pereira could come in for Luke Thomas, but James Maddison, Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho should all retain their positions in the final third of the field. Wesley Fofana was withdrawn against the Baggies just past the hour, but the centre-back is fit to start on Monday and should again be a part of a back three for Rodgers’s side. As for Palace, Mamadou Sakho, James McCarthy, Connor Wickham, James Tomkins, Nathaniel Clyne, Wayne Hennessey and Nathan Ferguson remain unavailable for selection. Sakho, Tomkins, Wickham and Ferguson have all been back on the training field since the Chelsea match, but this match will come too soon. Gary Cahill has an outside chance of recovering from a minor problem to make the starting XI, though, while Michy Batshuayi is available after being unable to face parent club Chelsea last time out. Hodgson could ultimately decide to select the same side that took to the field against the Blues, but Jeffrey Schlupp and Andros Townsend are among the options for change.
