Leicester sweating on the fitness of keeper Schmeichel ahead of Liverpool clash

English Premier League side Leicester City are sweating on the fitness of keeper Kasper Schmeichel after the player suffered a head injury scare during Denmark's Nations League game against Iceland on Sunday night.

The keeper was caught in the head-on by a trailing knee from Iceland's Albert Gudmundsson on the stroke of half-time as he knelt down to claim a long pass.

The incident saw the keeper replaced at half time after the 34-year-old was checked by the medics this coming after he looked unconscious; his place taken by Frederik Ronnow.

The keeper looked uncomfortable as he went down the tunnel and The Mirror reports that he might have injured his neck due to the awkward manner in which his head was knocked backwards.

The setback come at a time when Leicester City is preparing to meet Liverpool on Sunday when the Premier League returns.
