Danny Simpson: 10pm curfew for Leicester City defender

Leicester City will be forced into at least one change in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Norwich City at the King Power Stadium.

Team news

Danny Simpson is suspended for Leicester following his red card against Arsenal last time out so January signing Daniel Amartey could make his Foxes debut at right-back. Jeffrey Schlupp has returned to training after a hamstring injury but is unlikely to feature.

Norwich, meanwhile, have a concern over Andre Wisdom, who has a knee problem, but Alex Neil otherwise has a fully-fit squad to pick from.
