Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri says his side will be without Nampalys Mendy, Ben Chilwell and Yohan Benalouane ahead of their Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.
Mendy is still recovering from an ankle injury while Chilwell is nursing a muscle strain.
Ranieri confirmed that Chilwell picked up the strain while on international duty for England U21, while Mendy has not featured for the Foxes since his debut against Arsenal in August.
‘Ben Chilwell is injured,’ Ranieri told the Leicester City website.
‘He has a little problem, him and Nampalys Mendy are the only two players out.
‘Chilwell has a little muscle strain. He went away with the national team (England U21), came back and didn’t play.’
Ranieri also revealed that defender Benalouane has been training well with the U23 squad and will soon return to the first team set-up.
‘He is getting closer. He has trained very well and played well for the U23s. If I need him soon he is ready to play,’ he added.
The match at White Hart Lane kicks off at 16:00.
