After the game, the Irishman confirmed that Ndidi had suffered a hamstring injury, the same one that had forced him to miss Nigeria’s international duty.
Despite the fact that he was substituted, there are no worries that his absence will be lengthened. It would be left for the Nigerian midfielder to work on his fitness to travel with the team to Vitality Stadium.
Rogers, while speaking on the Injury, said “He felt his hamstring a little bit.”
“We think he’ll be okay. He came out of the international break with that, so we just needed to protect him,” he added.
At the Vitality Stadium, Rodgers will have nearly all of his squad at his disposal for the match.
