The Seven Critical Matches Ndidi Will Miss After Injury Blow Revealed

Leicester City could be without Wilfred Ndidi for the next five weeks in a big blow for Brendan Rodgers' struggling side as well Gernot Rohr’s Super Eagles.

The 24-year-old picked up a hamstring injury last month during the Foxes' 2-2 draw against Burnley.

And Rodgers has revealed further the extent of the damage to the midfielder.

”Wilf did it in the Burnley game, which was unfortunate,” Rodgers said. ”He missed the Legia Warsaw game through suspension and also Crystal Palace.

”It could be four to five weeks before he is back, we'll see how it goes.”

It means Ndidi is certain to miss out on the Foxes’ next match after the international break against Manchester United, while he could also miss the clash against Arsenal.

Rodgers will also likely be without his midfield enforcer in Europe too in a doubleheader against Spartak Moscow in the Europa League group stage.

During his expected time out on the sidelines, Ndidi could miss away trips to Leeds United and Brentford as well as a Carabao Cup test against Brighton.

Ndidi's injury also means he will be unable to line up for Nigeria this month in their World Cup qualifiers home and away to the Central African Republic, while he could also be out until after November's international break too.
