Ahead of this weekend’s Premier League action, Sportsmail will be providing you with all you need to know about every fixture, with team news, provisional squads, betting odds and Opta stats. Here is all the information you need for Leicester’s home clash with Huddersfield at the King Power Stadium.
Leicester team news
Leicester will be without captain Wes Morgan for their home game against Huddersfield.
Morgan is suspended after his red card in the defeat at Bournemouth and Foxes boss Claude Puel has hinted strongly that he will be replaced by Jonny Evans in the centre of defence.
Puel also suggested that Harry Maguire could be set for a rest, but with one change already necessary at the back it remains to be seen whether that will be the case on Saturday.
Provisional squad: Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic, Simpson, Chilwell, Evans, Pereira, Maguire, Fuchs, Gray, Maddison, Albrighton, Amartey, Iborra, Silva, Mendy, Ndidi, Ghezzal, Vardy, Choudhury, Iheanacho, Diabate, Okazaki, Soyuncu.

Huddersfield team news
Jonathan Hogg will return to contention for Huddersfield’s Premier League game at Leicester after suspension.
Hogg has served a three-game ban following his dismissal in the recent home draw against Cardiff and boss David Wagner must decide whether the midfielder will start. Defender Erik Durm is available after a back problem.
Ramadan Sobhi remains Wagner’s only absentee, with the Egypt international sidelined until after next month’s international break due to a knee injury.
Provisional squad: Lossl, Kongolo, Schindler, Jorgensen, Lowe, Billing, Hogg, Mooy, Hadergjonaj, Van La Parra, Mounie, Kachunga, Diakhaby, Depoitre, Mbenza, Hamer, Pritchard, Williams, Smith.
