Evans back in contention for Leicester

Jonny Evans will be available for Leicester as they look to equal a club record of six successive top flight wins against Everton on Sunday.

Evans was forced off with cramp after 62 minutes at Brighton last weekend but he has resumed training and will be fit.

Matty James is back in training following a long-term Achilles problem but the midfielder is not yet ready for a return to first-team action.

Everton have significant injury problems and will be without full-back Seamus Coleman.

Midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin and forward Theo Walcott, who both went off during last weekend’s loss to Norwich, are major doubts, as is Fabian Delph (hamstring).

Richarlison will be fit while Bernard (knee) has an outside chance of being involved. Andre Gomes (ankle) and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (thigh) remain long-term absentees.

Leicester provisional squad: Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic, Chilwell, Justin, Pereira, Morgan, Evans, Fuchs, Benkovic, Soyuncu, Amartey, Gray, Praet, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Barnes, Choudhury, Mendy, Ndidi, Perez, Vardy, Iheanacho.

Everton provisional squad: Pickford, Mina, Holgate, Digne, Sidibe, Richarlison, Davies, Sigurdsson, Tosun, Lossl, Keane, Baines, Kean, Iwobi, Calvert-Lewin, Bernard, Baningime, Gordon.
