Slimani & Ulloa To Be Assessed
- The Leicester City caretaker manager spoke to the media ahead of Monday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool at King Power Stadium (8pm kick-off)
- Shakespeare expects both strikers to be fit for the game
Craig Shakespeare is hopeful both Islam Slimani and Leonardo Ulloa will be fit for Monday’s Premier League fixture against Liverpool.
The Leicester City caretaker manager confirmed on Friday that the strikers will be assessed over the weekend.
Slimani has not started for the Foxes since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations with a minor groin injury while on duty for Algeria.
Ulloa continues his recovery from a muscular problem, while Molla Wagué will not feature after injuring his shoulder against Millwall.
"Islam [Slimani] trained with us out in Seville on Thursday morning and came through the session," Shakespeare said.
"I am expecting both of them to be fit. Whether they are match fit they will be assessed in the morning. I don't know [of any other problems] at this stage."
