Team News: Daniel Amartey makes Leicester City debut

Daniel Amartey is named in the Leicester City starting XI for the visit of Norwich City.

Daniel Amartey has been handed his debut in the Leicester City starting XI for this afternoon's visit of Norwich City.

The 21-year-old, who arrived at the Premier League leaders last month, comes in at right-back for Danny Simpson following his red card in the 2-1 loss at title rivals Arsenal last time out.

The enforced change is just one from manager Claudio Ranieri, with Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy continuing up front with support from Riyad Mahrez, N'Golo Kante, Danny Drinkwater and Marc Albrighton.

For the visiting Canaries, Alex Neil makes three changes from the side that were held to a 2-2 draw by West Ham United two weeks ago as he opts for a 3-4-3 formation.

Sebastien Bassong drops out and Ryan Bennett is in alongside Russell Martin and Timm Klose in the back three, with Robbie Brady moving up into a midfield role alongside Jonny Howson and the returning Alexander Tettey and Ivo Pinto.

Gary O'Neil drops to the bench while Wes Hoolahan plays no part in the trip to the King Power.

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Amartey, Huth, Morgan, Fuchs; Mahrez, Kante, Drinkwater, Albrighton; Okazaki, Vardy
Subs: King, Schlupp, Gray, Ulloa, Dyer, Wasilewski, Schwarzer

Norwich City: Ruddy; Bennett, Martin, Klose; Pinto, Tettey, Howson, Brady; Redmond, Naismith, Jerome
Subs: Rudd, Mbokani, Bamford, Jarvis, Mulumbu, Olsson, O'Neil
