Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Leicester City could line up for Sunday's FA Cup semi-final with Southampton.

Brendan Rodgers will consider recalling a trio of players who breached coronavirus protocols when Leicester City face Southampton in the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday.

James Maddison, Hamza Choudhury and Ayoze Perez were left out of the squad for last week's 3-2 league loss against West Ham United after allegedly attending a party.

However, all three have since returned to training and Rodgers must now decide whether to include any of them in his starting lineup this weekend.

Caglar Soyuncu is another who is thought to be in contention to return, having recently self-isolated after testing positive for coronavirus.

If given the green light, the Turkey international will likely take the place of Daniel Amartey in defence alongside Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana.

At the opposite end of the field, Kelechi Iheanacho is now the first name on the teamsheet after scoring nine goals in Leicester's last six matches.

Jamie Vardy has therefore gone under the radar of late, but the Englishman has scored in all three of his games at Wembley for City and will be looking to add to that tally here.

Leicester possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu; Pereira, Tielemans, Ndidi, Praet, Castagne; Vardy, Iheanacho
