Shinji Okazaki is fit to start as Leicester City visit West Bromwich Albion this afternoon.

The Japanese international starts after missing the last four games with a knee injury, and represents one of five changes from the Foxes side that reached a 1-1 stalemate with Bournemouth last weekend.

Daniel Amartey misses out as he begins a spell out of action with a hamstring problem sustained against the Cherries, while Marc Albrighton, Christian Fuchs, Adrien Silva and Matty James are also out of the XI to the benefit of Danny Simpson, Ben Chilwell, Demarai Gray and Vicente Iborra.

The hosts, meanwhile, show two changes from the lineup that fell to a 1-0 defeat at Watford last Saturday.

Jonny Evans fails to make the squad following a virus, while Jay Rodriguez drops to the bench. Allan Nyom and Salomon Rondon are their respective replacements in a Baggies team trying to turn around their fortunes following a six-game losing streak.

West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Nyom, Dawson, Hegazi, Gibbs; Krychowiak, Livermore, Brunt; Phillips, Rondon, Burke
Subs: Myhill, Robson-Kanu, Yacob, McClean, Rodriguez, McAuley, Field

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell; Iborra, Ndidi; Mahrez, Gray, Okazaki; Vardy
Subs: Jakupovic, Dragovic, Fuchs, James, Diabate, Albrighton, Iheanacho
