Jamie Vardy will be assessed ahead of Leicester’s second trip to Tottenham in a matter of days.

The Foxes’ 15-goal top scorer missed Sunday’s 2-2 FA Cup draw at White Hart Lane after a minor groin operation.

He has been involved in light training this week and boss Claudio Ranieri hopes to have him available but Jeff Schlupp remains out with a hamstring injury while Matty James is closing in on a return from a knee injury but is unlikely to feature. Demarai Gray could also make his league debut after signing from Birmingham last week.

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