Jannik Vestergaard to miss Leicester meeting with West Ham

Why Jannik Vestergaard will miss Leicester meeting with West Ham

Leicester City defender Jannik Vestergaard will be forced out of the club’s meeting with West Ham United tonight, it has been confirmed.

Capital shock

The last match of the Premier League match week will be played later today.

The clash in question will see West Ham welcome Leicester to the London Stadium, for a highly anticipated showdown.

The two teams were, of course, separated by a single point, and placed in the English top flight last season, eventually culminating with the Foxes and Hammers securing their respective Europa League spots.

Meanwhile, both clubs also got off to a positive start to their 2021/22 campaigns last time out, courtesy of takedowns by Wolves (Leicester) and Newcastle (West Ham).

In turn, a very close 90 minutes are widely forecast in the English capital on Monday night.

The afflictions of the foxes increase

However, as described above, with only a few hours to let the action begin at the London Stadium, Leicester’s visitors have taken a completely worrying blow.

This comes in the form of confirmation that Jannik Vestergaard will not be involved in the action against West Ham.

The towering defender Vestergaard, brought to King Power earlier this month due to the long-term injury suffered by Wesley Fofana, was expected to receive his bow from the Foxes on Monday.

However, as The Athletic’s trusty David Ornstein revealed, the Dane suffered from a fitness issue in practice over the weekend and will therefore not be available for selection by Brendan Rodgers.

Vestergaard joins the aforementioned Fofana and Jonny Evans on the sidelines, amid something of a crisis in the heart of Leicester’s bottom line.
