Leicester dealt injury blow to Ricardo Pereira vs Norwich

Leicester landed another defensive injury blow against Norwich

Leicester City’s sad luck spell on the staff front continued on Saturday afternoon.

Vardy on target

Brendan Rodgers’ men are currently deep in Premier League action with Norwich City on Carrow Road.

The Foxes headed to the proceedings in search of an immediate recovery display, having seen a good start for the season that came to a firm end at the hands of West Ham last weekend.

And, as things stand in Norfolk, a return to the winning track is precisely what Leicester is heading for.

Just before half an hour, the visitors go for a scoreless goal, courtesy of Jamie Vardy.

After being picked by up-and-coming Ricardo Pereira from the right, the Foxes’ lead man made no mistake with his shot, picking the furthest top corner with poise.

Pereira crocked

However, as described above, a positive afternoon so far for Rodgers and company. it has been soured considerably by a new blow on the personal front.

Surprisingly, by withdrawing the ball for Vardy’s opener, explosive winger Pereira managed to detect a fitness problem, which ultimately forced the Portuguese to limp off the field of play.

In his place came the return of Timothy Castagne.

A subsequent spell on the sidelines for Pereira would mark something of a disaster for Leicester, with the Foxes already without the services of a trio of defenders, in the form of Jonny Evans, Jannik Vestergaard and Wesley Fofana.
