Leicester City defender Robert Huth is expected miss the start of the Premier League season after undergoing minor ankle surgery.
Huth has undergone surgery to repair some minor ankle damage he suffered in preseason training and faces up to eight weeks on the sidelines. The 32-year-old's injury opens the door for summer signing Harry Maguire to partner Wes Morgan at center-back when Leicester kick-off the season on Friday 11 August with a trip to Arsenal. Manager Craig Shakespeare said: "It is unfortunate for Robert but we thought the diagnoses could be even worse so, on a positive spin, we think in six to eight weeks he will be back. Fortunately Harry has Premier League experience and he’s at a good age. We needed cover in that centre-half position." In terms of fantasy impact, Maguire is worth a look in both salary cap and draft leagues. However, it should be noted that three of Leicester's opening four matches are against top seven clubs.
