Leicester City have Jonny Evans back for Saturday's FA Cup Final showdown with Chelsea.

The centre-back was forced off in the defeat to Newcastle earlier in the month with a heel problem and sat out the following two games.

However, Evans returns to the starting lineup to boost Brendan Rodgers for Saturday's final at Wembley.

"It's going to be a physical game so we need good physicality and running ability, if that's hindered in any way it may make it difficult for him."

Cengiz Under has been nursing a hip problem and misses out along with Harvey Barnes, James Justin (knee) and Wes Morgan (back).

James Maddison is on the bench, with Ayoze Perez preferred in attacking midfield.

Leicester XI: Schmeichel, Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu, Castagne, Tielemans, Ndidi, Thomas, Perez, Vardy, Iheanacho

Subs: Morgan, Maddison, Albrighton, Ward, Amartey, Choudhury, Ricardo Pereira, Mendy, Praet

Chelsea XI: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Rudiger, James, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso, Ziyech, Mount, Werner

Subs: Pulisic, Zouma, Mendy, Giroud, Hudson-Odoi, Chilwell, Gilmour, Havertz, Emerson Palmieri
