While it’s perhaps not the most eye-catching of match-ups in the opening round of Europa League fixtures, Leicester will be eager to kick start their stuttering season after a narrow loss to Aston Villa on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Luhansk have endured a dire start to their domestic season, winning just one of their opening six games.

The trip to England couldn’t come at a worse time for the Ukrainians in terms of form.

While an away upset seems unlikely, a vulnerable Leicester side ravaged by injuries simply can’t take anything for granted.

Wilfried Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira and Caglar Söyüncü have been ruled out while Jamie Vardy remains a doubt.

Brendan Rogers has a few selection headaches to deal with and could resort to significant rotation.
