The duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi will rejoin their Leicester City teammates on Friday following their international engagement with Nigeria.
Iheanacho and Ndidi were part of Super Eagles’ team that played in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against the Mediterranean Knights of Libya.
Ndidi played in both legs of the qualifier against Libya in Uyo and Sfax – on Saturday and Tuesday respectively.
The former KRC Genk midfielder was yellow carded in the closing stages of the second leg fixture in Sfax which effectively rules him out of Nigeria’s next 2019 AFCON qualifier against South Africa on November 17.
Iheanacho was an unused substitute in both games.
Leicester City face Arsenal in an English Premier League fixture at the Emirates Stadium London on Monday.
The Foxes will look to put an end to the Gunners’ six-game winning streak in the encounter.
