Leicester City’s manager Claude Puel has ruled out the possibility of a return to action for Wilfred Ndidi in the Premier League clash against Arsenal on Wednesday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Ndidi sustained a hamstring injury in Leicester City’s 5-0 drubbing away at Crystal Palace penultimate weekend but began light training on Monday.
The 21-year-old midfielder is one of the eight senior Leicester players injured.
“We are sure that Ndidi, James, Amartey, Huth are not available, then after, other players, I don’t know,” Puel said during his pre-match interview on Monday.
“I don’t know for Okazaki, I don’t know about Simpson. We will see with Schmeichel. We will see with Diabate, he was ill today (Monday). Dragovic, we will see tomorrow (Tuesday) with his shoulder.
“I’m sorry I cannot give you more information about my team.”
Ndidi has made 33 English Premier League appearances this term, providing four assists.
Leicester City, currently ninth in the EPL table with 44 points from 36 games, are without a win in their last five league games.
