Leicester City v Newcastle United: Latest team news

Winger Riyad Mahrez is fit for Leicester against Newcastle despite being forced off against Watford.

The Algeria international came off after scoring the winner in the Foxes’ 1-0 victory but Claudio Ranieri insists Mahrez just had cramp in his hamstring and can face the Magpies on Monday.

Midfielder Matty James has also returned to full training following a serious knee injury which has forced him to miss all of the season but he is unlikely to be risked.

Provisional squad: Schmeichel, Schwarzer, Simpson, Fuchs, Huth, Morgan, Wasilewski, Schlupp, Chilwell, Drinkwater, King, Kante, Amartey, Inler, Gray, Dyer, Albrighton, Mahrez, Vardy, Ulloa, Okazaki.
