Leicester City Boss Explains Why Musa Is Not In Starting XI For Premier League GamesSpeaking after his side lost to Chelsea in the League Cup, Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has hinted why Ahmed Musa is not in the starting line-up in recent Premier League matches.

The Nigeria international has not started in the English top-flight since the opening day at Hull City, and the Italian coach has suggested that he has to be introduced gradually to the rigours of the Premier League.

Of a possible five appearances, Musa and Gray, who joined Leicester City in 2016 from CSKA Moscow and Birmingham City respectively, have started one game each in the top-flight.

“Shinji was very determined. It is good because between Shinji and Ulloa they want to fight to have a chance,” Ranieri said to lcfc.com.

“For us that is good. And also I watched Jeffrey Schlupp come back after his injury, Ben Chilwell, Demarai Gray and Ahmed Musa must understand much better the Premier League, but it is okay.

“For me it is important to develop all the squad and not just the 14 players.”

Musa, 23, was in action for 76 minutes as Leicester City were beaten 4-2 in extra-time by Chelsea on Tuesday night.
