11 Robert Huth (centre-back) – Since Huth joined the club in January 2015, Leicester’s defence has improved massively as Huth has developed a formidable partnership with Wes Morgan.

” 1 Jamie Ward Jamie Ward and Aaron Hughes look set to be included in Northern Ireland’s squad to face Switzerland in the play-offs, while Michael O’Neill has a dilemma over Paddy McNair. Striker Ward has missed half of his country’s World Cup qualification campaign with a calf problem, but has returned to make two appearances off the bench for Nottingham Forest this month.

Hughes, 37, joined up with Northern Ireland for the qualifiers with Germany and Norway earlier this month only to pull out with a calf issue that has prevented him from featuring for Hearts since too. Originally thought to be a doubt to make the double header with the Swiss, Hughes could be back to face Kilmarnock next weekend and O’Neill will be inclined to include him even if he does not play there given his vast experience.

Hughes has 108 international appearances to his credit and will surpass Bobby Moore as the home nations’ most capped defender ever when he next features for Northern Ireland. The decision over whether to recall McNair is a more difficult one given he has only just come back from an 11 month lay-off. The 22-year-old midfielder suffered a knee injury last November and made his senior return for Sunderland off the bench on Saturday with 11 minutes to go.

Sunderland have another two fixtures before O’Neill’s squad meet up in Belfast, but the Northern Irish manager is mindful that McNair is only just back from such a long spell on the However, given the prize at stake over the two legs is a place in next year’s World Cup finals – and McNair has the versatility to play in defence or midfield – he could be one of those named in O’Neill’s squad on Monday afternoon.

Northern Ireland host Switzerland at Windsor Park on November 9 before the two meet again in the return leg in Basel three days later. ” ” The upcoming summer will certainly be an interesting one for Leicester City.  Claudio Ranieri’s men could be preparing to defend their Premier League title after an unbelievable campaign.  They will also be playing Champions League football and it will be interesting to see how the Foxes cope.

  But first, they have to keep hold of star men Jamie Vardy, N’Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez, with some of Europe’s biggest clubs considering swoops.  Even if Ranieri does not alter his starting eleven much, he will probably bolster his ranks to have strength in depth in order to fire on all cylinders, as they hope to contend with Europe’s elite.

  So, how will they line up at King Power come August? talkSPORT has put together a possible XI – click the arrow above, right, to see in order of position. 11 Kasper Schmeichel (goalkeeper) – Click the arrow above, right, to see a predicted line-up of how Leicester could line-up next season under Claudio Ranieri – The Danish shot-stopper has made the number one spot his own at the King Power and, unless City receive an offer they cannot refuse, Schmeichel will be their first-choice goalkeeper next season.

11 Danny Simpson (right-back) – The former Manchester United defender has ? like the majority of City’s team ? exceeded expectations, playing a key role in their solid defensive performances. Unless Ranieri’s scouting team find a much better alternative, Simpson will probably keep his place.

11 Robert Huth (centre-back) – Since Huth joined the club in January 2015, Leicester’s defence has improved massively as Huth has developed a formidable partnership with Wes Morgan. Leicester have been linked with a number of central defenders, with Marseille’s Nicolas N’Koulou the most recent. But the 25-year-old may have to be patient if he does sign for the Foxes.

11 Wes Morgan (centre-back) – Like Huth, Morgan would be incredibly unlucky to lose his place in the club’s starting XI. The 32-year-old is currently part of a team which is on a run of five consecutive clean sheets, conceding just 31 league goals in total this season. Ranieri may add back up such as N’Koulou, but Huth and Morgan will probably remain first choice for the start of the campaign at least.

11 Christian Fuchs (left-back) – Fuchs goes under the radar when people discuss signings of the season. The Austrian arrived on a free transfer from Schalke and he has shown his ability defensively, as well as going forward. Fuchs should keep his place after remaining a reliable part of the team in 2015/16.

11 Danny Drinkwater (midfield) – Drinkwater has mastered the central midfield role alongside N’Golo Kante this season. He deservedly made his England debut last month and Ranieri should stick with him again next term. The 25-year-old does the dirty work in midfield, allowing attacking players the freedom to wreak havoc on opposition defences.

11 Lars Bender (midfield) – Long-time Arsenal target Bender could be a target for Ranieri this summer.Фенербахче_(футбольный_клуб) That is if Kante moves elsewhere. Speaking at an Arsenal Supporters’ Trust meeting this week, respected journalist Henry Winter reportedly told Gunners fans Kante ‘will probably move to Arsenal’.

If Leicester cannot keep hold of their star man, they could give Gokhan Inler the chance to impress, or try to bring Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Bender to the East Midlands. 11 Mario Lemina (midfield) – A reported target, Lemina could be a good replacement for Riyad Mahrez, if the Algerian moves elsewhere. The Gabon international, a box-to-box midfielder, is currently on loan at Juventus from Marseille.

The Serie A club have the option to make his move permanent, but having played just nine times for Juve, he is unlikely to make his stay long term. Lemina is a versatile player and Leicester are said to be interested, along with Arsenal. 11 Josip Ilicic (midfield) – Securing Josip Ilicic from Fiorentina would be a great signing for Leicester.

The 28-year-old Slovenian is attracting interest from across Europe, having scored 14 goals in 39 appearances for club and country this season. He would add quality to the Foxes’ line-up if Mahrez was to leave, although it would be an impressive partnership if the Algerian opts to stay.

11 M’Baye Niang (forward) – Niang has scored five goals and recorded four assists for Milan this season and the 21-year-old is attracting interest from both Leicester and Stoke. The Milan man could strike up an exciting partnership with Jamie Vardy. 11 Jamie Vardy (forward) – The England striker has been outstanding this season and signed a new contract with the club in February. “
