Leicester City will be without Jamie Vardy when they travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.
The Red Devils will host Brendan Rodgers’ team in a key match in the race for a top-four finish, in what will be their first match in three weeks.
The England striker has been out for weeks now, and will still be out fo the next two or so weeks, according to Rodgers.
“We’ll see really. We just work day by day really. He’s certainly not fit for the weekend but we’ll assess it over the next week or two weeks,” said Rodgers in Thursday’s press conference.
The Foxes will also miss the services of Wilfried Ndidi, who underwent knee surgery recently.
“He has had surgery and will be looking to get back in June,” Rodgers added. “Papy Mendy has come in, we thought he was leaving last summer but he has come back in and he’s always been professional.”
United currently sit sixth in the table, behind both Arsenal and Tottenham, and a win could hugely boost their hopes of finishing in the top four.
Leicester, on the other hand, are currently 10th on the log.
