Duo ruled out of Wednesday’s match as Craig Shakespeare challenges Leicester City to remain competitive

Leicester City will be without captain Wes Morgan and striker Islam Slimani when they face Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.

“Wes won’t make it, he’s overstretched his hamstring," Craig Shakespeare told "We’re hoping that it’s a precaution and we’ll then look towards Saturday. Slimani is still out with a groin strain.

“We aren’t safe. Even if we get there we've to keep trying to win. Competitiveness is vital in football. We need it to the end.”
