Leicester City faces a serious setback as club releases injury update of five players amid Preston clash…

Kasey McAteer’s injury has disrupted Leicester City’s plans, as he was forced to leave the pitch during their recent victory over Blackburn Rovers, just under 20 minutes after being brought on as a substitute.

McAteer sustained a hamstring injury, and Leicester City anticipates his absence for approximately a month, possibly extending beyond the November international break.

Speaking about McAteer’s injury, Maresca explained, “Unfortunately, with a muscle problem like this, the recovery period is expected to be around four to six weeks.

This is not only physically challenging but also mentally demanding for a player who, just last year, was competing in League Two and now finds himself playing at Anfield.”

McAteer is not the only player unavailable for the upcoming match against Preston. Jannik Vestergaard will also be missing due to suspension after accumulating his fifth yellow card of the season during the Blackburn match. Conor Coady is likely to step in for Vestergaard.

Leicester City is facing a shortage of at least five players for the match against Preston. Dennis Praet and former Preston loanee Tom Cannon continue to be sidelined due to back issues, while Callum Doyle is unlikely to return until the new year following knee surgery.

To address the gaps in their squad, Leicester City will need to bring in two new players. Marc Albrighton is a probable choice, and either Ben Nelson or Wanya Marcal, who have recently been playing for the Under-21s, may fill the remaining spot.
