“We will see. It is a hamstring injury. I hope it is not serious of course because it is an important moment.”
Leicester City were two goals down before Ndidi limped off and Marc Albrighton was sent off minutes later. And the French tactician has faulted the two unfortunate situations for compounding his team’s woes against the Eagles.
“At 2-0, we lost all the balance to the team and there wasn’t enough desire. We tried to change it tactically at half-time, but the injury to Ndidi and the red card made it really difficult. Tough day,” Puel said in his post-match conference.
“The red card was harsh. It was a battle between two players, both making contact. It happened during a crazy five minutes with the injury to Ndidi that left the team so imbalanced. We needed to react in the second half and this scenario made it impossible.”
Leicester City are ninth on the Premier League table with 44 points from 35 matches.
