Leicester City vs Derby County - Ranieri to make changes for Leicester's FA Cup replay

Posted Wednesday, February 08, 2017 by PA

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri will make changes to his side for the FA Cup replay against Derby.

The Premier League champions face a crucial trip to relegation rivals Swansea at the weekend and Ranieri's selection will be made with that game in mind.

The likes of Ben Chilwell, Andy King, Marc Albrighton, Demarai Gray and Daniel Amartey could be recalled.

Recent signing Molla Wague is ineligible having joined the club after the original tie while strikers Islam Slimani (groin) and Leonardo Ulloa (thigh) are still nursing injuries.

Derby will check on Craig Bryson after he was forced off against Newcastle on Saturday with a hip problem.

Bryson, who scored in the 2-2 draw with the Foxes will be assessed. Fellow midfielder Bradley Johnson also came off with a knock at St James' Park but he is expected to be available.

However, Will Hughes (hamstring) will remain out but striker David Nugent could be involved against his former club as he nears fitness after suffering a knee injury on his Rams debut on January 13.

Should Derby defeat the Premier League champions they will travel to League One side Millwall in the fifth round later this month.
