Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho could be available against Brighton despite fracturing his hand on international duty with Nigeria.
Iheanacho was left out of Nigeria's matchday squad for Tuesday's friendly against Sebria after he fell and fractured his hand. Speaking ahead of the trip to Brighton, Leicester boss Claude Puel revealed that the injury is not expected to cause any long-term problems for the striker. "We will see if [Iheanacho] can play with this injury," said Puel. "He fell but it’s not a [bad] injury." Iheanacho trained with his broken hand strapped on Thursday and could potentially feature this weekend. Puel also confirmed that Harry Maguire is fit following international duty with England, but midfielder Matty James won't be available after picking up an Achilles tendon problem in training.
