Leicester City have been dealt a major injury blow after Wilfred Ndidi seemed to have sustained a hamstring injury in his country’s world cup qualifier against Zambia.
Although the extent of the damage is not confirmed yet, it is very likely that Ndidi will be missing Leicester City’s Monday night fixture at the King Power Stadium against West Bromwich Albion.
If indeed, some damage has been done, then City are set to find themselves in a midfield crisis, with Adrien Silva’s International Transfer Certificate not granted as well.
The Foxes had appealed FIFA’s original decision to block Silva’s move to the King Power Stadium, but even with the FA backing the 2015/16 Premier League champions, the footballing world’s supreme governing body refused to change their mind.
Of course, that leaves Craig Shakespeare with little to choose from, though it’s good news for all the Vicente Iborra fans out there, with the Spaniard destined to start against West Brom alongside the ever-loved Andy King.
Well, whatever the line-up, all that the East Midlanders would want is to get a win against the Baggies. Winless in five league games now, Leicester City are desperate to turn their domestic form around and especially now, when the fixture list is going to be kinder to Shakespeare’s side.
West Bromwich Albion have themselves not had the best of starts, winning just two of their seven fixtures so far. Tony Pulis’ side recently blew a 2-0 lead at home to Watford, as they ended up with another draw to extend their barren run to five games.
