James Maddison injury news
James Maddison’s knee injury will be assessed in seven to 10 days to see if he is then able to rejoin his Leicester City team-mates in training.
The England midfielder has been feeling a new pain in his knee since returning from World Cup duty, and so is yet to feature for City since domestic football resumed.
With City’s medics unable to get to the bottom of the issue, he visited a specialist in London on Wednesday.
It seems there is nothing seriously wrong with Maddison, with manager Brendan Rodgers saying he will be assessed in early January to see how the pain is.
That will likely mean he misses next week’s Premier League clash with Fulham and the FA Cup tie at Gillingham.
Speaking about Maddison before City’s final match of 2022 at Liverpool, Rodgers said: “They’ll hopefully see some progress over the next week. After seven to 10 days, we’ll see where he’s at in terms of rejoining the group.”

Leicester City midfielder James Maddison will miss Friday’s Premier League game against Liverpool due to a knee injury and has seen a specialist about the issue, manager Brendan Rodgers said.
Maddison went off injured after scoring in Leicester’s 2-0 win at West Ham United before the World Cup and while he was part of England’s squad in Qatar he did not play.
“Maddison won’t be available for the game,” Rodgers told a news conference on Wednesday, “He was with (club doctor) Mark Waller getting some special advice in London so I’ll wait to hear from them later on.
“He hasn’t trained with the squad. He was clearly getting treatment out (in Qatar) and he and the medical team deemed him okay to train and was available for games for England.
“He’s come back, looked to do some work, and felt a pain in a different part of his knee.”
Maddison had been in superb form for 13th-placed Leicester this season with seven goals and four assists in the league.
Belgian midfielder Dennis Praet will also miss the Liverpool game having suffered a knock early in Leicester’s 3-0 defeat by Newcastle United on Monday after replacing Maddison in the starting line-up.
Maddison was included in an England under-21 squad in March 2016, but was unable to play due to injury.
He received his first call-up to the England under-21 team in November 2017, and made his debut against Ukraine in a 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier.

Maddison withdrew from the senior squad in October 2019 due to illness. He was later seen visiting a casino, although his conduct was defended by club manager Brendan Rodgers.
Maddison made his debut for England on 14 November when he came on for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 56th minute of a 7–0 win over Montenegro in UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying.
After a three-year absence, he was announced as part of the 26-man England squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
