Leicester City duo Ben Chilwell, Maddison doubtful for Arsenal clash

Leicester City could be without James Maddison and Ben Chilwell when they travel to face Arsenal in an English Premier League clash on Tuesday night. 

The Foxes will take on the Gunners at the Emirates on the back of a morale-boosting 3-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out; their first since the Premier League return. 

They might however be forced to play without two of their key players in left-back Ben Chilwell and midfielder James Maddison due to injuries. 

Chilwell was withdrawn at half-time during the clash with the Eagles, while Maddison sat the match out, after aggravating a hip injury against Everton

"We’ve got doubts over James Maddison and Ben Chilwell," Brendan Rodgers confirmed on Monday morning. "They’re the two that could struggle, but we’ll see how that is today.

"We just have to wait and see. There’s big doubts over both. It’s the bottom of Ben’s foot which is giving him pain so we’ll just have assess that and see what the specialists say.

"You can play through it, but you have to manage that. They’ll both be big doubts ahead of the game. We’ll give them every chance."

Rodgers' men are third in the Premier League standings, a point above Chelsea in fourth, and on the right path to qualify for Champions League next season.
