Brendan Rodgers' men will be much rotated with players such as new signings Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumare both signed from Red Bull Salzburg and Lille respectively, to feature.

Former Chelsea star and Champions League winner, Ryan Bertrand is also expected to make his debut in blue after his arrival from Southampton on a free transfer.  

Both teams will compete for the Bass Charity Vase, a charity tournament that has benefited local health charities since it was founded in 1889. If the game finishes level after 90 minutes both teams will compete in a penalty shoot-out.

Team news

Young midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall was among the players to report back for duty a fortnight ago and judging by his impressive outings for Luton Town last season, he may be a youngster to excite Foxes fans. 

All new signings Daka, Soumare and Bertrand are expected to play as well as regular first-team starters Jamie Vardy, Wilfried N'didi, Luke Thomas, Kelechi Iheanacho, Marc Albrighton and Çağlar Söyüncü who returns following a miserable Euro 2020 tournament for the Turkish international.

A huge boost for the Foxes and Rodgers would be the welcome return of attacker Harvey Barnes. The Academy graduate and England international was enjoying a magnificent campaign for the Foxes, hitting 13 goals in all competitions before sustaining a nasty looking knee-injury back in February. 

New signing Brad Young or Daniel Iversen are expected to start in goal due to both first-team keepers Daniel Ward and Kasper Schmeichel are still on well deserved breaks following the European Championships.

Previous visits

That night, Kelechi Iheanacho and Youri Tielemans put the visitors in charge.

James Maddison's close-range effort secured the win after Liam Boyce scored with a 20-yard drive for the hosts as the Foxes ran out 3-1 winners in an entertaining game in East Staffordshire.

The Foxes also welcomed the Brewers back in 2013 in the FA Cup which resulted in a comfortable win for the hosts thanks to Chris Wood and Ritchie De Laet
