Leicester City vs Burnley - Maguire and Maddison miss out for Foxes

Harry Maguire and James Maddison will be absent for Leicester with knee injuries when they face Burnley in the Premier League this weekend.

The pair are also unavailable for England’s forthcoming internationals against the United States and Croatia.

Matty James has resumed training after a long-term Achilles problem but this game will come too soon for him to be involved.

The match will be the Foxes’ first at home since owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was killed along with four other people in a helicopter crash close to the King Power Stadium on October 27.

Burnley could be without England defender James Tarkowski for the trip to the east midlands.

The 25-year-old has been struggling with a groin problem all season and saw a specialist on Thursday to determine whether he needs to have surgery.

Fellow defender Ben Gibson will be sidelined for a few more weeks after undergoing a second hernia operation but Jack Cork and Phil Bardsley are fit to return after missing last weekend’s defeat to West Ham.
