Leicester defender James Justin is set to miss the rest of the season of the Premier League following an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury he sustained in his team’s FA Cup fifth-round victory over Brighton on Wednesday.
It is a huge setback for Leicester as they will go up against Liverpool on Saturday.
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said, “The scan hasn’t shown up so well. It looks like he has done his ACL which is a devastating blow for us because he has been incredible.”
Rodgers revealed Justin was currently in London for further medical action and is expected to undergo an operation soon.
Justin has made 31 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes.
