Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri is expected to make changes for Wednesday’s FA Cup third-round replay at home to Tottenham.

New signing Demarai Gray is in line for a home debut, Matty James could make his return from injury, while fringe players Ritchie de Laet, Andy King and Leonardo Ulloa are all in the frame.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is also considering rotating his squad.

“We have players in a condition where it’s a big risk to play,” he said.

“Always we assess the players and maybe we take a decision to rest some players.

“It is a good challenge as they play with a different team in the FA Cup, 10 players different from in the Premier League. We have a good chance to go to the next round and the FA Cup is important for us.”

Leicester midfielder James, 24, has not played since rupturing knee ligaments at the end of last season.

“For me Matty is very important,” Ranieri said. “I watched a lot of matches from last season and he played very well with Esteban Cambiasso in the middle.

“He is young, he is strong, with a good personality, good skill, good vision. This is another very good player for me who can help the squad.”
