Carabao Cup: Leicester City Ready For Liverpool Test- Ndidi

Wilfred Ndidi says Leicester City are looking forward to Wednesday’s Carabao Cup tie against Liverpool at Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers’ men will play their first competitive game in 10 days after Premier League fixtures against Tottenham Hotspur and Everton were postponed due to positive COVID-19 cases at the Club.

Training has been distruped at the club during the period with some players spending time in isolation, while others have picked up injuries.

Ndidi admits it has been a tough spell for the first team squad but is glad that Leicester are returning to matches.

“It’s been difficult because we haven’t really had time to train as a group,” the Nigeria international told LCFC TV. 

“We have to follow the protocol and it’s been difficult because we haven’t been together as a group. We’ve been training individually because of COVID-19, but we’ll just see what comes.

“It feels like [it’s been a long time since Leicester’s last game]. We had be at home for some days so it feels so long. Now we have a game coming up, but we haven’t really trained properly together. It feels a little bit better now, but as a group, everyone is not yet back.

“As a group, we know what we want and I’m happy because we’re getting back together.”

The Foxes no doubt face a difficult task against Jurgen Klopp’s men who are overwhelming favourites to secure a place in the last four.

The 25-year-old however believes winning their first-ever FA Cup crown last season after beating Chelsea in the final can give the squad confidence in this season’s Carabao Cup.

“It gives us this mindset that it is achievable, it is possible, no matter the team you are playing,” Ndidi added.

“It is really possible. The confidence is here. When you think back to that amazing feeling of winning the FA Cup, it is something we have in our minds that we can achieve things together as a group.

“We’ve done it and it we can still do it. We’ve done it before and we can do it. It all depends on us to actually be at our best in every single game.”
