Though it is Liverpool’s injury woes which are currently grabbing the headlines, it is worth noting that the Foxes have some of their own big stars out of action as well.

And on Friday, Brendan Rodgers would move to provide updates on several of these players.

First up, the Leicester boss confirmed that Ricardo Pereira, who has been injured since last season, is training with the group and progressing really well:

“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.”

Rodgers then stated that Wilfred Ndidi and Caglar Soyuncu are also progressing well but are probably a few weeks away from a return, whilst Timothy Castagne is back fit:

“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.

“Timothy Castagne’s back in again, which is great news, and Wesley Fofana will be fine, so we’re slowly starting to get our players back.”
