Teemu Pukki: he may not be as hot as he was at the start of the season, but he is their star player. He has racked up 11 league goals this season.
Todd Cantwell: A breakthrough season. He is drawing attention from super clubs like Liverpool.
Leicester City team news:
Nempalys Mendy and Daniel Amartey remain sidelined for the Foxes.
Head coach Brendan Rodgers was confident in his pre-match press conference that star midfielder Wilfried Ndidi could make the playing in this game. The 23-year-old Nigerian has missed some game-time due to knee surgery. His importance side is clear to see that Leicester's patchy form has coincided with his absence.
“Wilf Ndidi has been training but we’ll see how he is for the game on Friday. If he’s not available, then we'll look to next week, but he’s making great progress, which is good for us,” said Rodgers.
Midfielder Hamza Choudhury is available after a one-game ban and could be used right from the off if Ndidi is not deemed fit enough.
Kelechi Iheanacho is expected to be fit after a blow to the head against Manchester City last week.
Leicester City key players:
Jamie Vardy: He hasn't scored in 2020, and not since scoring in the 3-1 defeat against Manchester City in December. That's a run of seven games. But he is their hit-man and will be starting the game.
James Maddison: Leicester's most prized asset. He is perhaps the most gifted player in this team.
Ayoze Perez: Leicester's second-best return with seven goals.
Harvey Barnes and Youri Tielemans are both in good form. The duo has 11 assists between them.
