Leicester boss, Enzo Maresca confirmed after the game that the Nigerian has picked up injury.

 

 

“Enzo Maresca tells me that Wilfred Ndidi has picked up an injury, that’s why he was absent today,” Leicester City’s BBC correspondent, Owynn Palmer-Atkin wrote on his X account.

 

“Both Ndidi and Iheanacho are set to join up with Nigeria tomorrow, Enzo stressed that neither are currently fit enough to play.”

 

Iheanacho has missed the Foxes last two Championship games due to a muscular problem.
