Wilfred Ndidi suffered an injury as Leicester City drew 1-1 against Everton in Wednesday’s Premier League game.
The 24-year-old only played for 42 minutes before suffering a knock and subsequently replaced by Papy Mendy to avoid aggravating the problems.
James Rodriguez opened the scoring for The Toffees in the 30th minute before Youri Tielemans levelled proceedings to ensure the game ended with a share of points.
Ndidi’s compatriot and teammate Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute while Alex Iwobi featured for 10 minutes for Everton
The draw helped The Foxes stretch their unbeaten run across all competitions to nine games which ensured they kept their place in the third spot on the league table after gathering 39 points from 20 games.
Brendan Rodgers’ side meanwhile moved to seventh with 33 points from 18 games.
It is still uncertain if the Nigeria international will be fit enough to feature for the King Power Stadium outfit in their next Premier League game against Leeds United on January 31.
