The Foxes would move top of the table for at least a few hours if they beat the current league leaders, although they will have to stop a run of two consecutive defeats to do so.
Nigel Pearson's side trail Burnley and Queens Park Rangers by one point having suffered back-to-back losses to Sheffield Wednesday and Brighton & Hove Albion.
The hosts could welcome Ritchie De Laet back into the squad after he played an hour in a developmental match last week to continue his recovery from injury, but Chris Wood (hamstring), Tom Hopper (shin) and Sean St Ledger (groin) are all likely to miss out.
Burnley, meanwhile, will be looking to move four points clear of Leicester and three clear of QPR, who don't start their match away to Blackpool until 3pm.
Possible starting lineups
Leicester: Schmeichel; Konchesky, Wasilewski, Morgan, Miquel; King, Hammond, Dyer, Drinkwater; Nugent, Vardy
Burnley: Heaton; Shackell, Duff, Trippier, Mee; Jones, Kightly, Arfield, Stock; Vokes, Ings
Sports Mole says: 2-2
