Claudio Ranieri is worried that goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel will not be available for Leicester's Premier League clash with Manchester United.
The Denmark No 1 has missed the Foxes' last two games after being concussed in training last week, and felt a muscular problem in training on Thursday.
Schmeichel had hernia surgery during the last international break but Ranieri did not confirm what kind of injury he was struggling with on this occasion.
Ron-Robert Zieler deputised for Schmeichel in the 3-0 win over Burnley and 4-2 extra-time defeat by Chelsea in the EFL Cup, and he could make a third straight start at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Ranieri said: "Today he [Schmeichel] made some (of the) training session but he felt a little pain to a muscle so tomorrow (Friday) I will check.
"I don't know now (exactly what the issue is). He said to me 'I feel something' and I said 'OK'.
"I am not a doctor but the concussion is OK. Let me check (on him) tomorrow. If it is nothing serious then he will come and play, if not he will stay at home."
Ranieri is relishing the chance to go up against Jose Mourinho again this weekend and says Leicester can go to Manchester without fear.
He added: "We are fearless. Why are we scared to go there? More than lose, what can we do there? Why? I enjoy, 70,000 people is amazing, fantastic. I don't want to go when there is just you and me to play. It is very bad show.
"It is not the first time they (Leicester's squad) play against United. Now they are experienced players. It is normal. When you go in this big stadium you want to show your best."
