Foxes of Leicester detail and discuss the latest Leicester City injury news as new No.1 goalkeeper Mads Hermansen sustains a training ground problem. Will this update offer a chance to either of the out of favour stoppers Danny Ward or Daniel Iversen? Hermansen has literally just been injured right before one or both of his perceived understudies leave with prospective transfers this summer. Then there is Jakub Stolarczyk, who impressed for the Foxes versus Burton Albion with a clean sheet in the League Cup victory.
Just as Leicester’s campaign was gathering a positive and productive early pace, the dreaded apparent LCFC curse reared its head again. Enzo Maresca seems to know what he’s doing. There have been two wins in two fixtures so far. One victory came in the slog that will be the Championship at home to Coventry City; the other triumph was away to Burton in the Carabao Cup.
However, new first-choice ‘keeper Hermansen has reportedly suffered an issue. According to broadcaster and Leicester fan Geoff Peters, who is currently with talkSPORT, Hermansen is potentially a concern at Seagrave. The Dane has a quad injury. At the moment that is the information, but the goalie was sent for a ‘precautionary scan’.

In addition to that point, Maresca admitted that it was ‘important’ to witness backup Foxes in a competitive scenario.
After seeing goals from Wilfred Ndidi as well as Kelechi Iheanacho, Maresca said that it is very good to move to the next round. He declared himself happy with the performance due to the way his men played.
