After returning to training last week, Shinji Okazaki is ready to return for the trip to West Bromwich Albion and may start in a support striker role in a 4-4-1-1 system. Kelechi Iheanacho is the main alternative in that position, while if Claude Puel uses the 4-3-3 formation he started with in the 1-1 draw against Bournemouth, Adrien Silva could retain his start alongside Matty James and Wilfred Ndidi in central midfield. Demarai Gray and Fousseni Diabate provide different options across the attacking midfield positions, but are not expected to start in place of Marc Albrighton. Daniel Amartey misses out with the hamstring injury that forced him off against the Cherries, so Danny Simpson should return at right-back. Christian Fuchs was recalled at left-back last weekend, but Ben Chilwell is expected to earn a recall against the Baggies.
Simpson – Morgan – Maguire – Chilwell
Mahrez– James – Ndidi – Albrighton
