Groin injury keeps Leicester's Slimani out

Press AssociationPress Association 1/11/2016

Leicester will be without record signing Islam Slimani for their Champions League game at FC Copenhagen.

The AGBP30million ($A48 million) striker missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at Tottenham with a groin injury and boss Claudio Ranieri does not want to risk the Algeria international in Denmark.

Nampalys Mendy remains out with an ankle injury which has kept him sidelined since August but Ahmed Musa is fit for Wednesday's match (Thursday AEDT) after suffering a knock scoring at White Hart Lane.

Provisional squad: Schmeichel, Zieler, Simpson, Hernandez, Huth, Morgan, Wasilewski, Chilwell, Fuchs, King, Amartey, Drinkwater, Gray, Albrighton, Mahrez, Schlupp, Musa, Vardy, Ulloa, Okazaki.
