Leicester City’s Ricardo Pereira will miss the rest of the season after damaging his knee ligaments in Monday’s Premier League win over Aston Villa.
The 26-year-old Portugal full-back, who will also miss Euro 2020, has made 28 league appearances this term.
“It’s a blow for us. Hopefully we can get him back for some time around pre-season,” said manager Brendan Rodgers.
Rodgers also said that James Maddison has picked up a calf injury that will keep him out two weeks.
It means the England midfielder will miss both Saturday’s Premier League trip to Watford and the Foxes’ FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea on Saturday 21 March (both 12:30 GMT).
Rodgers had earlier confirmed that three of the club’s first-team players have self-isolated after showing symptoms of coronavirus and “have been kept away from the rest of the squad.”
