🤕 Leicester City's injury crisis deepens

Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers has revealed defender Timothy Castagne is set to miss the club's next three matches with a hamstring injury. 

Castagne was not part of the Leicester City squad that beat AEK Athens 2-1 on Thursday evening and is expected to be on the sidelines until after the international break. Rodgers has also revealed the club could miss the services of Jonny Evans doubtful for Monday's trip to Elland Road against newly promoted side Leeds United. 

"Timothy has tweaked his hamstring, hence the reason he didn't travel, so he will probably be out until after the international break. It's not too bad but it will keep him out for this next period," Rodgers said after the match. 

On Evans

"Jonny landed really awkwardly against Arsenal but played on. The back stiffened up. We wanted to give him every chance. He trained, but had to go in and was suffering with his back."

The Foxes are also without Ricard Pereira out with a knee problem and is not expected to fit until the end of November while Caglar Soyuncu is on the sidelines until the new year after his adductor was torn off the bone. 

Castagne is expected to miss City's three matches against Leeds and Wolves, and the home Europa League tie with Braga.
