Leicester City boss Claude Puel makes three changes to his starting lineup for the Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has made several changes to his starting lineup for the Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.

On Wednesday night, Puel rested Vicente Iborra, Marc Albrighton and Demarai Gray for the 4-1 victory over Southampton, but each of the trio has been recalled for Saturday's showdown with Palace.

Christian Fuchs is back on the bench, as are Andy King and Shinji Okazaki despite scoring three of Leicester's four goals at St Mary's.

As for Palace, manager Roy Hodgson has made two alterations to the team which recorded a dramatic 2-1 triumph over Watford in midweek.

Luka Milivojevic is suspended so James McArthur comes into the first XI, while Martin Kelly replaces Timothy Fosu-Mensah at right-back.

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell; Iborra, Ndidi, Mahrez, Albrighton, Gray; Vardy
Subs: Hamer, Fuchs, Dragovic, King, Okazaki, Iheanacho, Ulloa

Crystal Palace: Speroni; Kelly, Tomkins, Dann, Schlupp; McCarthur, Cabaye, Loftus-Cheek; Townsend, Zaha, Benteke
Subs: Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Soaure, Lee, Sako, Wann-Bissaka, Riedeweld
