Moi Elyounoussi and Ibrahima Diallo are set to bolster Ralph Hasenhüttl's midfield options for the visit of Leicester City on Wednesday night.

Both players missed the trip to Anfield for varying reasons, Diallo missing out with a twisted ankle which saw him be an unused substitute at the weekend.

Norwegian Elyounoussi was left out of the travelling squad for personal reasons as his wife was due to give birth.

The midfield pair are joined by defender Jack Stephens, who returned to first team training last week after a two month knee injury.
