Leicester have suffered an injury setback ahead of their trip to the Amex.

Harvey Barnes suffered a knee injury in yesterday’s 3-1 defeat at home to Arsenal.

Jonny Evans also went off with a calf injury for the Foxes to add to their lengthy casualty list which includes James Maddison, Ayoze Perez, James Justin, Wesley Fofana and Dennis Praet.

Boss Brendan Rodgers confirmed Barnes is likely to be out until April and needs surgery.

He said: "It's not good news, it looks like he needs to go for an operation so he will probably be a minimum of six weeks.

"He has had niggles with it, which is why we rested him on Thursday but unfortunately it's a bad one for him and a huge blow for us.

The Argus:


"We're down to the bare bones, we've carried it all season and the players have been great but even when we got the first goal they had the greater energy."

Leicester meet Albion at the Amex on Saturday (8pm).
