Is Ndidi Available To Face Liverpool? Leicester City Coach Provides Update On Key Midfielder
Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Wilfred Ndidi will not be in the traveling party to Anfield when his side tackle Liverpool in a blockbuster Premier League clash on Sunday.

The Nigeria international was spotted training with his Leicester City teammates earlier this week, fueling speculation in some quarters that he could be involved in some capacity against the Reds.

Now Rodgers has suggested that the holding midfielder would not be available for selection for at least two weeks as he ramps up his recovery from an adductor injury which required surgery two months ago.

Providing an update on the fitness of his squad, Rodgers told Leicester's official webpage : "Ricardo’s in training with the group, which is great news, and he’ll most probably play in a reserve game next week. He’s progressing really well.

"Wilf is out on the field. He still has a number of weeks to go, but he’s progressing well. Söyüncü, likewise, is maybe a few weeks away, but training with the squad."

Ndidi's last competitive action for the Foxes was on September 20 against Burnley in the Premier League.
