Leicester coach, Brendan Rogers, has given the reason why he had to make a last minute replacement of Nigeria international, Wilfred Ndidi, ahead of the game against Chelsea on Saturday.
According to Rogers, “He’s felt a pain in his knee, he recently had an operation but was alright against Villa.
“We had him in to play but it’s become very sore. Rather than him go out in the warm-up we thought we’d leave it. We don’t want any long-term problems.”
In his place comes Choudhury, who played 90 minutes in the FA Cup win over Brentford last weekend, but who had been absent from the last two Premier League squads, for the fixtures against Burnley and West Ham.
Choudhury in for Ndidi is one of two changes made by Rodgers from the loss to Villa, with Jamie Vardy returning to the starting line-up in place of Kelechi Iheanacho.
