Thanks to the Leicester manager’s presser, we now know that Wilfred Ndidi will be sidelined for around three weeks, unfortunately. In addition to that, Nampalys ‘Papy’ Mendy is also unavailable for the upcoming match with Bournemouth. This means a significant opportunity for Boubakary Soumare to step into the role he may have stolen anyway, for now. The Frenchman deserves a bit of a run in the Foxes side.
