What is the team news?

Leicester City

Captain Wes Morgan is likely to return for Leicester to face Atletico Madrid in their Champions League quarter-final second leg.

The skipper has missed the last six games with a back injury, but is expected to feature to solve the Foxes' defensive problems, with fellow centre-back Robert Huth suspended with Leicester trailing 1-0 from the first leg.

Islam Slimani is struggling with a groin problem, while midfielder Nampalys Mendy is out with an ankle issue.

Provisional squad: Schmeichel, Hamer, Zieler, Simpson, Benalouane, Morgan, Fuchs, Chilwell, Drinkwater, King, Ndidi, Amartey, Albrighton, Mahrez, Gray, Musa, Ulloa, Slimani, Vardy, Okazaki.

What are they saying?

Craig Shakespeare

"I don't know the average for this season and that is the problem. We don't know because we don't know how many points the other teams are going to get," Shakespeare, whose side have earned 16 points in seven games since he took over in February, said.

"If the other teams go on a run we have to put as many points on the board as we can... All I am concentrating on is making sure I stay focused and the players stay focused, and try to win every game we are in."
