Leicester City vs Southampton team news

Leicester City are set to welcome back Harvey Barnes to their squad for Southampton’s visit today. Though, it’s unclear how big a role he will play after recovering from a knee injury.

Two things are certain though. Wesley Fofana and Boubakary Soumare will not be involved today amid the uncertainty over their futures at the Foxes. Fofana has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea.

Southampton forward Che Adams, who hails from Leicester, could feature today despite picking up a minor knock in Saints’ 2-2 draw at home to Leeds United last weekend.

However, Romain Perraud, Theo Walcott and long-term absentee Tino Livramento are all out with injury.
