Iheanacho Subbed On, Ndidi Out With Injury As Leicester, Chelsea Share The Spoils

Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho was subbed on as Leicester City were held to a 2-2 draw by Chelsea in the Premier League at the King Power stadium on Saturday, Completesports.com reports.

Iheanacho was introduced for Jamie Vardy with 10 minutes remaining in the game.

Wilfred Ndidi was not included in the squad after he was replaced by Hamza Choudhury moments before the line-up was announced due to a sore knee.

The game was Iheanacho’s ninth in the league with three goals.

Harvey Barnes and Ben Chilwell were on target for Leicester while Antonio Rudiger bagged a brace for Chelsea.

Rudiger opened scoring for Chelsea on 46 minutes before Barnes equalised for Leicester on 54 minutes.

Chilwell put Leicester 2-1 ahead but Rudiger grabbed his second goal on 71 minutes, to rescue a point for Chelsea.

Leicester remain third on 49 points while Chelsea are fourth on 41, in the league table.

    I don’t know the seriousness of Ndidi’s injury, but many reports indicate that it’s still the knee that was operated upon recently. I remember many fans (especially Nigerians) speaking out against the rushed return of Ndidi to action after his knee surgery to avoid relapse of the injury, but Rogers would not listen.
    With all his experience with players and injuries, he selfishly justified playing that young man instead of allowing him full recovery. Now, who knows how bad this could be for the player in the long term….
    As a club, Leicester City can buy any player that they want, but as a nation, our choices are limited to only our citizens.
    I sincerely pray that the selfishness of this coach doesn’t lead to a nagging injury for this very important Nigerian player.
    I wish Ndidi a complete recovery from this injury.

    Same way he rushed back vardy from injury. This man doesn’t really believe much in iheanacho doing the work for him that’s why he didn’t start him against Chelsea but instead opted to rush back vardy. Iheanacho will deliver more consistently if he is giving more play time
