Leicester City vs Burnley - Maddison fit for Leicester’s clash with Burnley

Leicester midfielder James Maddison is fit for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Burnley after recovering from illness.

The 22-year-old withdrew from international duty last week as he was suffering from flu – and sparked controversy when he was later spotted in a casino – but has trained as normal this this week.

The Foxes expect Belgium midfielder Dennis Praet to be available again after taking time off this week for personal reasons.

Burnley will be without Johann Berg Gudmundsson after the winger sustained what boss Sean Dyche described as a “reasonably serious” hamstring injury while playing for Iceland.

Ex-Leicester man Danny Drinkwater (ankle) remains unavailable, while a late call will be made on Jack Cork, who missed the 1-0 win over Everton last time out due to a shoulder issue, and Ashley Barnes (groin).

Erik Pieters, who came off injured against the Toffees, looks set to be fit for selection having trained this week.

Leicester provisional squad: Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic, Chilwell, Justin, Pereira, Morgan, Evans, Fuchs, Soyuncu, Amartey, Gray, Praet, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Barnes, Choudhury, Mendy, Ndidi, Perez, Vardy, Iheanacho.

Burnley provisional squad: Pope, Hart, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Gibson, Pieters, Bardsley, Long, Cork, McNeil, Brady, Hendrick, Westwood, Lennon, Wood, Barnes, Rodriguez, Vydra, Peacock-Farrell.
