Team News: Mahrez back as City make three changes

Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion make three changes apiece for this evening's Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium.

Riyad Mahrez has returned to Leicester City's starting lineup as one of three changes for this evening's Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion.

The Algeria international was left out for the goalless draw with Bournemouth prior to the international break, as the Foxes' wait for a top-flight win stretched to a fifth game.

Mahrez has been integrated back into the fold for the visit of West Brom, though, while summer signings Vicente Iborra and Kelechi Iheanacho are also included from the off.

Andy King, Demarai Gray and Shinji Okazaki are the players to make way, with Leicester tonight seeking their first win against Albion in nine attempts.

In terms of the visitors, boss Tony Pulis has also made three alterations on the back of the 2-2 draw with Watford 16 days ago.

The big news is that goalkeeper Ben Foster misses out, meaning a rare start for Boaz Myhill, while Chris Brunt and Matty Phillips are replaced by Nacer Chadli and Jake Livermore.

Republic of Ireland hero James McClean, who bagged the only goal of the game against Wales last week, remains among the Baggies' subs.

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

West Bromwich Albion: Myhill; Dawson, Hegazi, Evans, Gibbs; Krychowiak, Barry, Livermore; Jay Rodriguez, Rondon, Chadli.
Subs: Palmer, Nyom, Yacob, Phillips, Brunt, McClean, McAuley
