EPL: Leicester Bag Away Win At Sheffield Without Injured Ndidi; Iheanacho,  Success, Balogun Absent

Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi missed Leicester City’s 2-1 away win against Sheffield United on Saturday at the Bramall Lane due to a hamstring injury, reports Completesports.com.

It was the first time Ndidi missed a league game for the Foxes since May 2018, with summer signing Dennis Praet replacing him in the starting line-up.

Ndidi was on target for Leicester City in their 1-1 away draw against Chelsea last weekend.

The injury also raises concerns for Ndidi’s availability ahead of Nigeria’s upcoming friendly against Ukraine.

His international teammate, Kelechi Iheanacho was not included in the matchday squad by manager, Brendan Rodgers.

Iheanacho is yet to make an appearance for the former Premier League champions this season.

Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes got the goals for Leicester City in what was their first win of the new campaign.

At the Vicarage Road, Issac Success was left out of the matchday squad for the second consecutive week as Watford went down to a 3-1 home loss to West Ham United.

Success has made one league appearance for the Hornets this season.

In another Premier League game at the American Express Community Stadium, Leon Balogun failed to make the bench in Brighton & Hove Albion’s 2-0 home defeat to Southampton.

Balogun has to made any matchday squad in all of Brighton’s three Premier League games so far this season.

Man United 1 – 2 Crystal Palace

Manchester United suffered their first defeat of the campaign, going down to a 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace.

Jordan Ayew opened scoring for Palace in the 32nd minute, while Daniel James equalised for Manchester United a minute from time.

Patrick Van-Aanholt grabbed the winning goal deep into stoppage time.

    I really hope Iheanacho, Success and Balogun seek new clubs outside England. It is obvious their coaches don’t have them in mind. Especially for Kelechi, who needs to bounce back and compete with other strikers to fill the Ighalo space. And this time other players are scoring for their clubs.
    Just last weekend, Ndidi, Chukwueze and Aribo scored for their clubs.
    This weekend, Moses Simon scored on his debut, Musa and Kalu giving Assists while Iwobi hitting the bar.

    Then the trio of Kelechi, Success and Balogun should not wait any longer, they should leave where they tolerated to where they are celebrated. Or else they loose their place permanently in Super Eagles.

  • J J Okocha is a more talented player than Kanu Nwankwo.
    But Papilo retired richer and won more laurels in club football than Okocha.
    Besides luck, Kanu had a better manager.

    Who the hell is Iheanacho’s manager?
    Save this young man’s carrer for goodness sake; get him out of Leicester City. Any premiership team on loan evan championship on loan is better than the bench.
