Premier League 16/12/2021 – Leicester City v Tottenham Hotspur

  • Jonny Evans was forced off early in Leicester’s 4-0 win over Newcastle with a hamstring injury and is not expected to return here. Caglar Soyuncu is also ruled out leaving Leicester with no fit centre-backs.
  • 17-year-old Ben Nelson was on the bench last weekend but Brendan Rodgers would rather come up with an alternative to throwing him in at centre-back against Tottenham.
  • Wilfred Ndidi will certainly have to play at the back and Rodgers may go with a back three with two full-backs in with him. Far from ideal.
  • Jamie Vardy was an unused sub at the weekend, but should start here, while Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira may come into the XI.
  • Ayoze Perez, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ademola Lookman are among those ruled out.
  • Lucas Moura, Son Heung-Min and Bryan Gil are among those who have tested positive for COVID-19, leaving Tottenham a little short in attack.
  • Oliver Skipp and Emerson have also tested positive, so Harry Winks and Japhet Tanganga are expected to start.
  • Giovani Lo Celso and Steven Bergwijn may both feature from the outset here.

  • Mateo Kovacic remains absent having tested positive for COVID-19, while Ben Chilwell continues to miss out.
  • N’Golo Kante and Trevoh Chalobah could return this week but need to be assessed.
  • Thomas Tuchel is expected to make changes to his side, with Romelu Lukaku, Andreas Christensen, Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi among those to potentially start.
  • Richarlison has undergone a scan for a calf problem suffered in last weekend’s 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace and is sidelined here.
  • Andros Townsend is also missing after undergoing a scan for a suspected broken bone in his foot. Seamus Coleman has bone bruising and soft tissue damage.
  • Allan sat out the defeat to Palace with an adductor issue and is unlikely to recover in time to face Chelsea.
  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Tom Davies and Yerry Mina are still missing through injury, while Lucas Digne has been suspended by the club. Rafa Benitez’s problems are not easing up.

  • Nat Phillips may have played his final game for Liverpool after fracturing his cheekbone.
  • Divock Origi looks set to miss out with a minor issue, but Roberto Firmino has returned to full training and could make the squad here.
  • Curtis Jones has been sidelined with an eye injury since October but was able to take part in training this week. He could return before the year is out.
  • Harvey Elliott and Adrian are certainly unavailable for Jurgen Klopp’s side and the Liverpool manager may shuffle his pack for the welcome of Newcastle.
  • Naby Keita, Ibrahima Konate, James Milner and Takumi Minamino are among those hoping for minutes on Thursday.
  • Paul Dummett is making steady progress in his recovery from injury but is unavailable and has now been joined on the treatment table by Federico Fernandez.
  • Eddie Howe may revert to a 5-4-1 system in order to help stifle the Reds attack.
  • That could see Ciaran Clark start at the back, while Matt Ritchie may also feature from the outset here.
