The fitness of midfielder Harvey Barnes is being monitored by the Leicester medical team after he suffered an ankle problem at Manchester City.

If Barnes comes through training on Tuesday with no reaction he will be in contention to play.

Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (ankle) has been ruled out until the new year, while Dejan Lovren (muscle), Joel Matip (knee) and Fabinho (ankle) remain sidelined.
