Leicester City dealt potential Jonny Evans blow ahead of Brighton

Leicester City dealt potential Jonny Evans blow ahead of Brighton

Leicester held by Napoli

Leicester City got their Europa League campaign underway on Thursday evening, playing host to Serie A side, Napoli.

The Foxes have been drawn in Group C alongside Legia Warsaw, Spartak Moscow and the aforementioned Partenopei, with the Italians looking set to prove the toughest test for Brendan Rodgers and co. over the coming months.

And, when all was said and done at the King Power on Thursday, a tough test is precisely what the visitors posed.

Leicester enjoyed the better of the game during the first hour or so, and would prove a real handful for Napoli on the counter.

This led to Ayoze Perez and Harvey Barnes firing the hosts into a two-goal lead after 64 minutes.

However, Napoli would ultimately fight back, and a late brace from Victor Osimhen saw the Serie A giants return home with a share of the spoils:

Evans to miss Brighton?

As well as blowing a two-goal lead, Leicester also appear to have picked up a personnel problem on Thursday.

As reported by the BBC, Brendan Rodgers revealed that Jonny Evans has emerged as a fitness doubt for his side’s meeting with Brighton on Sunday.

“He felt he was struggling to push off, so we’ll have to see that over the next 24 to 48 hours.”
