This is our predicted line-up for this afternoon’s match at Leicester City. It has three changes from last weekend’s match against Brighton with Allan Saint-Maximin, Sean Longstaff, and Emil Krafth coming in for Christian Atsu, Jonjo Shelvey, and Javier Manquillo
Steve Bruce has for a second week running received an injury boost. Last week it was Allan Saint-Maximin and Andy Carroll who made their returns to the matchday squad. Today could see both Sean Longstaff and DeAndre Yedlin back in contention. That leaves just three players ruled out due to fitness.
Florian Lejeune – knee, Matt Ritchie – ankle, Dwight Gayle – calf
Matty James – achilles, James Maddison – ankle (late fitness test)
