Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri confirmed that Danny Simpson will be available for selection for Saturday’s match with Burnley.
Simpson is set to make his return after missing their Champions League win on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, which the fullback suffered in their defeat to Liverpool GW5. "Danny Simpson trained very well and he’s ready to play," Ranieri said speaking about his squad's fitness ahead of their match at the King Power Stadium this weekend. Fri, Sep 16, 2016 06:40:00 PM

Danny Simpson limping off with an apparent hamstring injury at Anfield on Saturday only served to compound matters after the Premier League Champions were deservedly thumped 4-1 by Liverpool.

The Leicester defender endured a torrid afternoon as he struggled to get to grips with the game and Daniel Sturridge, particularly during the build-up to the second goal which Sadio Mane confidently clipped in past Kasper Schmeichel. Simpsons’ day ended after only 34 minutes and if tests reveal a muscular tear, then the Foxes full-back can expect at least 2-3 weeks on the sidelines. His absence should see summer signing Luis Hernandez come into the side. The 27-year-old, who arrived from Sporting Gijon last started at Hull on the opening day, but disappointed along with the rest of his teammates as they lost 2-1. A run in the side will help Hernandez to settle while his long throw could provide a new angle of attack.

Danny Simpson was sent off in the 54th minute in Leicester's match against Arsenal today.

Simpson was sent off for a second yellow and after Leicester City were up 1-0 on Arsenal, but with only ten men, the Foxes couldn't hold on to their lead. Arsenal ended up scoring twice late in the game to take all three points. Simpson will miss the next match with a suspension but is not a fantasy option even when he returns.

Leicester's Danny Simpson will miss the last match of the season due to legal trouble.

Simpson was found guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend at a house in Worsley and could face jail time. He is currently suspended from the club while his legal situation gets cleared up and Leicester City will not make any further comments on the matter at this time. He will be sentenced next month, which will clear up his status for next season.

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson will not appeal his suspension for gameweek 18.

Pearson will serve his ban when Leicester host Tottenham on Boxing Day. He was found guilty for getting into a heated exchange with a fan during his club's 3-1 loss to Liverpool earlier this month. Leicester have been so bad that they can't really get any worse even with Pearson not on the sidelines so there aren't any big fantasy implications from his suspension.

Full-back Danny Simpson has revealed that he was surprised when Harry Redknapp told him Leicester have made a bid and he was welcome to leave the club.

Simpson did say that he was happy to be at Leicester now and that he plans to fight for first-team football but we anticipate that fight to be a tough one for him. Simpson does have Premier League experience with Newcastle United in the past but we don't think that will help him too much after what has been a poor last few years for him. Simpson is likely going to be a backup and shouldn't be used in any fantasy leagues.
