Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has said that midfielder Wilfred Ndidi could be fit to make his comeback against West Ham tonight. The Nigeria international has missed the last three games in all competitions after undergoing surgery on a problem with his knee. The original prognosis was a three to four week recovery period.
On facing West Ham Rogers said “West Ham will be a tough game, they will be fighting for the points as well, I think when we played them around the Christmas period games are so tight together, David (Moyes) is very organised in his work so you can see the organisation he had given them playing with two controlling players with Declan (Rice) and Mark (Noble) sat in central midfield. They have players who have the freedom to come from outside or inside in front of that and the fullbacks are able to go. Probably the only time they have changed it is when they played in the league against Sheffield United when they played with a back three, apart from that it has been 4-4-1-1, they have talented players. They will be tough to break down so it’s going to be a game of patience for us but we know we have enough quality”
