Matthew Upson could make his return from injury against Manchester United this weekend.
The Leicester City defender has been out for an extended period of time with an ankle injury and has taken a long time to return to match fitness. He is at the point where he will likely be included in the Leicester squad this weekend but an appearance off the bench is more likely. He is not a fantasy option at the moment. Jan 30 - 9:48 AM

Leicester defender Matthew Upson is still lacking match fitness and is expected to miss out on gameweek 19.

Upson has been out for an extended period of time with an ankle injury and still hasn't regained match fitness. He was supposed to return on Friday but his return has been delayed. He is not a fantasy option even after he returns, as Leicester have trouble keeping clubs from scoring and Upson is not a phantom-point all-star.

Leicester defender Matt Upson is nearing full fitness and could return to action next week.

The defender has been sidelined with an ankle injury for an extended period of time but is finally training with the Foxes. We are not yet sure who Upson will replace in Leicester's defense but he will likely be given a go considering how leaky the defense has been lately. We don't consider him a good fantasy option for the time being.

New Leicester City signing Matthew Upson has been ruled out for up to three months after suffering an ankle injury.

Upson had to go under the knife to fix up the ankle and will be missing until November. The 35-year old was expected to be the experienced voice in the dressing room and was expected to provide a reliable backup to Leicester's back line. With him gone, Leicester will have an extremely tough time at the beginning of the season, especially since they're facing Everton, Chelsea, and Arsenal to start off the Premier League campaign.
