Missing Players and team news:
Leicester will again be without the services of James Justin and Harvey Barnes due to long-term knee injuries, while Wes Morgan is also expected to miss out with a back issue. Having had a week to prepare for this match, Rodgers is unlikely to cause any surprise with his team selection, meaning that James Maddison should again support Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy in attack. The back three and midfield two will also remain in place, but there could be a change at wing-back, with Ricardo Pereira potentially coming in for Luke Thomas, which would see Timothy Castagne switch sides. Evans had emerged as a doubt with the foot problem that he has been battling in recent weeks, but the Northern Ireland international should be passed fit. As for Newcastle, Fabian Schar is suspended due to the red card that he picked up against Arsenal last weekend, while Isaac Hayden, Jamaal Lascelles, Karl Darlow and Ryan Fraser are all still injured. Head coach Bruce is expected to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack from the defeat to Mikel Arteta’s side as the Magpies had been on an impressive run ahead of the clash with the Gunners. As a result, a 3-5-2 formation should again see Jacob Murphy and Matt Ritchie line up in the wing-back positions, with fit-again duo Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin operating in the final third of the field.
