Leicester City are facing the prospect of being without Wesley Fofana for the entire 2021-22 campaign, with the centre-back suffering a fractured fibula during Wednesday's pre-season clash with Villarreal.
As a result, there is a chance that Wilfred Ndidi could be pressed into action in the middle of the defence alongside Caglar Soyuncu, with Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand featuring in the full-back areas.
There could be competitive debuts for Bertrand and Boubakary Soumare, although fellow new arrival Patson Daka might start on the bench, with Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho potentially lining up in attack.
Youri Tielemans was strongly linked with Liverpool earlier in the transfer window, but the Belgium international has remained at the King Power Stadium and should line up in the middle of the park.
Leicester possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Pereira, Ndidi, Soyuncu, Bertrand; Albrighton, Tielemans, Soumare, Barnes; Vardy, Iheanacho
