The 29-year-old has a muscle strain after missing the last two games with concussion and was forced out of training on Thursday.

Ron-Robert Zieler has deputised for the Denmark international in their 3-0 Premier League win over Burnley and Tuesday's 4-2 extra-time EFL Cup defeat to Chelsea.

Boss Claudio Ranieri said: "Today he made some (of the) training session but he felt a little pain to a muscle so tomorrow I will check.

"I don't know now (exactly what the issue is). He said to me 'I feel something' and I said 'OK'.

"I am not a doctor but the concussion is OK. Let me check (on him) tomorrow. If it is nothing serious then he will come and play, if not he will stay at home."
