Jeffrey Schlupp has returned to Leicester City line-up

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson has restored versatile attacker Ghana Jeffrey Schlupp to his starting line-up to battle fellow relegation strugglers Newcastle United in the English Premier League on Saturday.

The 22-year-old had not played for the Foxes after suffering an injury while in action against Newcastle United at the King Power Stadium.

Schlupp returned to training last week for Leicester but was not available to play in 3-1 loss against Chelsea in midweek.

Leicester XI to face Newcastle: Schmeichel, Wasilewski, Huth, Morgan, Albrighton, Cambiasso, James, Mahrez, Schlupp, Ulloa, Vardy.

The German-born has played 28 games for the Foxes this season and scored thrice and will be hoping to help them restore their winning run.
