Leicester City manager Enzo Maresca will be without Kelechi Iheanacho for their Championship clash against Millwall due to illness. Iheanacho was absent from the squad in their recent 4-0 win over Plymouth Argyle, marking the first time he has been omitted since Maresca took charge. This absence, alongside Jamie Vardy's, provided an opportunity for Zambia striker Patson Daka to make a rare start, which he utilized effectively.
During a pre-match press conference, Maresca delivered less-than-optimistic news on the fitness of Iheanacho, Vardy, as well as attacking midfielders Kasey McAteer and Yunus Akgün, stating that all four remain sidelined for the upcoming Millwall game. Maresca expressed hope for Vardy's swift return, noting it's a minor issue, while also confirming that Wilfred Ndidi, Iheanacho's international teammate, should be available for selection.
Leicester City, currently holding 49 points, has the opportunity to set a Championship record by surpassing 51 points after 21 games if they secure a victory against Millwall.
