Ahmed Musa, Papy Mendy and Luis Hernandez could all make their Leicester debuts in the Community Shield against Manchester United on Sunday.

The trio joined the Premier League champions in the summer and could make their bows at Wembley along with fellow new faces Ron-Robert Zieler and Bartosz Kapustka.

Robert Huth can play despite currently serving a three-game ban for an altercation with Marouane Fellaini against United at the end of last season. The defender will serve the final match of his suspension in the Foxes' league opener at Hull next week. Ritchie de Laet and Gokhan Inler do not feature in boss Claudio Ranieri's long-term plans and are unlikely to be part of the squad.

Provisional squad: Schmeichel, Zieler, Chilwell, Schlupp, Morgan, Hernandez, Wasilewski, Huth, Fuchs, Simpson, Kapustka, Gray, Amartey, King, Mendy, Drinkwater, James, Albrighton, Mahrez, Ulloa, Okazaki, Musa, Vardy.
