Shinji Okazaki the only injury doubt for Leicester

Leicester hope to have striker Shinji Okazaki back in contention for the visit of Bournemouth.

The Japan international will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s game, having missed the last three matches with a knee problem.

Okazaki resumed training this week and is the only injury concern for manager Claude Puel, whose side are without a win in four Premier League outings.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has reported no fresh injury concerns.

Winger Jordon Ibe, forward Lys Mousset, defender Brad Smith and midfielders Harry Arter and Marc Pugh all featured in a Premier League Cup tie this week to build up match fitness.

Forward Jermain Defoe should be involved again after coming off the bench during last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Newcastle on his return from an ankle injury, but defender Tyrone Mings continues his rehabilitation from a back problem.
