Mark Schwarzer: Set to start in goal for Leicester in Capital One Cup clash

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri will once again make wholesale changes for the Capital One Cup clash with West Ham.

The Italian swapped all 11 players at Bury in the previous round and has hinted he will do the same on Tuesday night. Mark Schwarzer will be in goal and 20-year-old forward Joe Dodoo, who scored a hat-trick against the Shakers, will make his full home debut.

Nathan Dyer is cup-tied but there could also be starting places for the likes of Danny Simpson, Yohan Benalouane, Christian Fuchs, Marcin Wasilewski, Dean Hammond, Andrej Kramaric and Leonardo Ulloa. Youngsters Harry Panayiotou, Andre Olukanmi, Jonny Maddison and Ben Chilwell may be included in the squad.

West Ham will be without Michail Antonio.

The winger, who made his Hammers debut as a substitute in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Manchester City, is cup-tied having already played in this season’s competition for previous club Nottingham Forest.

Carl Jenkinson could be a doubt after limping off at City while Angelo Ogbonna (hamstring), Alex Song (ankle) and Enner Valencia (knee) are still out.
