Claude Puel has provided an injury update ahead of the visit from Leicester City this weekend.

Midfielder Steven Davis remains unavailable with a knock after missing games against Burnley and Norwich City in the Premier League and Emirates FA Cup respectively.

Virgil van Dijk and Ryan Bertrand were not risked in that midweek cup success against the Canaries, but will be back in contention to face the reigning champions.

Puel said: “For the injuries, Davis is not available and Sofiane Boufal as well as the longer injuries like Charlie Austin, Alex McCarthy, Matt Targett and Jake Hesketh.”
