Leicester vs Napoli build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Leicester haven’t had it all their own way at the start of this season, losing two of their opening four Premier League games, including 1-0 against Man City at the weekend. Attention now turns to continental matters and after winning the FA Cup last season, Brendan Rodgers will hope lifting silverware can become a habit for the Foxes.
But Leicester face an incredibly tough start to their Europa League campaign against a Napoli side boasting a 100% record after three Serie A games this season. The Partenopei beat Juventus 2-1 at the weekend, further demonstrating just how strong they are right now, though in 10 previous trips to England in European competition, they’re yet to pick up a win.
- Leicester (vs Man City): Schmeichel; Castagne, Soyuncu, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Tielemans, Ndidi; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy.
- Napoli (vs Juventus): Ospina; Di Lorenzo, Manolas, Koulibaly, Rui; Ruiz, Anguissa, Elmas; Politano, Osimhen, Insigne*.
Ayoze Perez’s three-game suspension only applies to domestic games so he should start here, while Jonny Evans is likely to get some minutes too. But James Justin, Nampalys Mendy and Wesley Fofana are all sidelined.
Piotr Zielinski returned to action for Napoli at the weekend, but they’ll remain without Alex Meret, Faouzi Ghoulam, Diego Demme, Stanislav Lobotka and Dries Mertens on Thursday. Lorenzo Insigne also limped out of the win against Juventus and could miss out.

Rodgers excited to work with eight-year target Ademola Lookman
A late piece of business in the transfer window for Leicester saw Ademola Lookman arrive on a season-long loan from RB Leipzig. Despite bursting onto the scene with Everton under Ronald Koeman, the 23-year-old is yet to truly settle into his career, and this spell with Leicester — which has an option to become permanent — is seen by many to be his last big chance.
But Rodgers has a lot of faith in Lookman’s abilities, insisting he has the tools to be a success at the King Power Stadium after revealing he first started watching the winger when he was just 15 years old.
“I’m really excited about working with Ade, he’s a top talent,” said Rodgers prior to Leicester’s defeat to Man City at the weekend, in which Lookman made a 15-minute cameo off the bench. “I wanted to take him to Celtic when he was at Charlton. I was aware of him when he was 15.
“He has all the tools, he has a great dribbling ability, how he views the game, he has an eye for a goal. My hope is that this environment will give him a chance to flourish. Hopefully, he can find a home here. I have no doubt the supporters will be excited by him.
“He can play in a number of positions. His preferred position is off the left side but he can play on the inside as well and on the right.
“He’s very balanced. He’s got two good feet. You wouldn’t know which is his strongest foot, he can strike the ball very well off both sides.”
