Leicester’s Hamza Choudhury racially abused
Leicester have contacted the police following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Anfield.
That’s after Leicester midfielder Hamza Choudhury was subjected to racial online abuse after the Premier League match.
Choudhury injured Mohamed Salah with two minutes of regulation time on the clock.
The Leicester defensive midfielder mistimed a sliding tackle on Salah.
As a result, Choudhury, who was only booked for his poor tackle, left Salah limping.
Sadly, the Choudhury foul on Salah triggered some idiots to racially abuse the 22-year-old.
Leicester have posted the following statement:
We are appalled by these comments, which the Club has reported to the police and to the social media platform on which they were made.
Leicester City has responded tonight to racist remarks sent to Hamza Choudhury after today’s defeat at Liverpool.

Liverpool: Mohamed Salah injury update
Liverpool fans are now waiting to find out just how bad Salah’s ankle injury is.
After the match, Jurgen Klopp said the following about his Egyptian forward:
Mo is lying in the dressing room. How can he be okay? We don’t know how he is, but that’s hard.
Perhaps the only good news for Liverpool and Salah is that the forward now has two weeks off.
It had already been confirmed that Salah was omitted from Egypt’s upcoming get-together in the international break.
The hope will be that Salah’s ankle injury will heal by the time the Premier League restarts.
Liverpool’s next league match is away at Man United on October 20th.
Mo Salah has just hobbled away from the mix zone. Said he thinks it’s his ankle.
Hopefully nothing too serious.

Good news for #LFC – Salah took a bad knock at the end of game, but initial checks have shown injury not serious – not as bad as first appeared.

Liverpool 2 – Leicester 1
An injury-time penalty from James Milner won the match for Liverpool.
Milner set up Liverpool’s opener in the first-half, when his forward pass released Sadio Mane, who finished with aplomb.
James Maddison scored for Leicester in the second-half.
