By Our Correspondent
Super Eagles duo of Alex Iwobi, Everton and Wilfred Ndidi, Leicester City are making reported improvement in their respective injury update, Bestchoicesports.com.ng can report
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has hinted that recuperating winger Iwobi is set to return from injury that has kept him out of actions for weeks.
The Nigeria international was substituted in the 11th minute of Everton’s goalless draw against Arsenal at the Goodison Park after picking up a hamstring injury and has not featured since then.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash against West Ham United in Thursday’s press conference, Ancelotti disclosed that the Eagles forward is closer to a return.
“Alex Iwobi will not be ready for the match. I think next week he will be able to train with us,” Ancelotti told Everton TV.
On the other hand, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is now working out on the pitch after undergoing a surgery.
Ndidi sustained the injury in training ahead of Leicester City’s Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg tie against Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium. The game ended 1-1.
“Ndidi has made great progress. He’s out on the pitch, working.
Apart from that, the squad is good,” Rodgers told reporters on Friday ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Burnley at the Turf Moor.
The 23-year-old has made 20 league appearances for Leicester City this season and scored two goals.
Leicester City sit in third position in the Premier League table with 45 points from 22 games.
