Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare says Marc Albrighton will be available for selection for Tuesday evening’s Premier League clash with Sunderland.

- Craig Shakespeare provides an update on the fitness of Marc Albrighton, Wes Morgan and Papy Mendy 

- Albrighton has recovered from the 24-hour bug that kept him out of Saturday’s win over Stoke City 

- Morgan and Mendy will both miss the clash with Sunderland on Tuesday, according to Shakespeare 

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare says will be available for selection for Tuesday evening’s Premier League clash with Sunderland. 

The winger missed after reporting unwell on the morning of the game, but has since returned to training and has been passed fit for the fixture against Sunderland. 

However, Shakespeare revealed centre back Wes Morgan (back) and central midfielder Papy Mendy (ankle) will both miss out. 

Speaking to the media in his pre-match press conference on Monday, Shakespeare said: “Marc [Albrighton] trained yesterday (Sunday) with the squad so it was a 24-hour bug. 

He managed to complete training yesterday but he felt really tired after it. He’s come through today. I spoke with him after and he’s 100 per cent fit.

“Unfortunately Wes Morgan and Papy Mendy are still out injured. Wes hasn’t trained with the group yet but he’s been out for the last couple of days on the grass. He’s still a way off in terms of joining back in with the squad. 

“Papy we’re assessing day by day but he won’t be ready [for Sunderland]. We’re reluctant to put a time limit on it. 

“He had an operation on his ankle a while ago and he’s having a few issues with it. He’s seeing a specialist today and until we get that report, I’d be reluctant to put a time frame on it.”
