Leicester City dealt yet another injury blow as star man forced off against Liverpool

Leicester City dealt yet another injury blow as star man forced off against Liverpool

Leicester City heading for the Semi Finals

As it stands, Brendan Rodgers is set to lead his Leicester City side to a Carabao Cup semi-final berth, at the expense of former side Liverpool.

A much-changed Liverpool lineup was blown away in the opening minutes by a tigerish Leicester side, with Jamie Vardy netting twice in the opening 15 minutes.

And while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain managed to pull one back, James Maddison produced a stunning strike to send the Foxes into the break with a 3-1 advantage over Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Diogo Jota has since pulled one back for Liverpool, reducing the Liverpool deficit to just the single goal, but as it stands they will still be heading out of the competition.

Bittersweet for Leicester City?

Although they may be heading through as it stands, any victory will come at a cost to the Foxes.

Midway through the second-half, influential defender Caglar Soyuncu went down holding his hamstring after blocking a shot from Roberto Firmino, prompting worry on the Leicester City bench.

And, indeed, a change had to be made, with summer signing Jannick Vestergaard coming on to replace the Turkish defender.

Foxes fans will be hoping that the injury is only an impact one, rather than a potential strain or tear, as they look to continue their march up the Premier League table.

With Wesley Fofana still out with an injury sustained in pre-season, options are thin on the ground for Rodgers.
