Key Duo Missing For Foxes

Key Duo Missing For Foxes

Leicester City are without James Maddison and Harry Maguire for Saturday’s clash against Burnley at King Power Stadium. Maddison has enjoyed a fantastic season since joining the Foxes in the summer from Norwich City for a reported £20million and his impressive performances resulted in a call-up to England’s squad last month.

However, the 21-year-old midfielder, who has bagged three goals this term, felt something in his knee after the 1-0 win at Cardiff City last time out and he will not feature against the Clarets.

 

Fellow Englishman Harry Maguire will also be missing for Burnley’s visit due to a knee problem and the club have confirmed they will look at a comeback date after the international break.

 

Speaking about the duo, manager Claude Puel said: “Harry Maguire will not be available for this game and for the national team also. It will be the same for James Maddison. He is not available for this game and the international games.”

 

Nigerian Kelechi Iheanacho and Northern Irishman Jonny Evans are expected to play in place of the injured pair.
