Robert Huth is yet to star for Leicester City this summer following his long term injury. He had his surgery last summer but further setbacks when he trained with the youth team have kept him away. He is now set to train with the youth team and feature against Spurs in Premier League 2 while he gains match fitness.
With Wes Morgan out injured, Huth would have an accelerated timeline back to the senior team. Adrien Silva, who only knew he was cleared to play late in the game against Huddersfield Town, was a late sub. Harry Maguire and Aleksandar Dragovic are the main defenders for now so Huth is expected to add his experience to the defence.

The 2017-18 season of the EPL is going to kick-off on August 11 and if Robert Huth does indeed need 2 months of recovery, then he is not going to be back into the pitch until late September or early October.
¨Robert reported back for pre-season and got into some discomfort with his ankle. He’s had an operation and thankfully it was successful. It’s unfortunate for Robert but we thought it might be worse. We’re expecting him to be out for around six to eight weeks¨ the head coach of Leicester City, Craig Shakeaspeare said.

Premier League side Leicester City are set to land Hull City defender Harry Maguire this summer.
The move is expected to be confirmed later this week if the player agrees personal terms and passes medicals.
Both sides have reportedly agreed that the deal should cost £17 million as the player is set to enter the final year of his deal. Craig Shakespeare recently agreed terms with the Foxes management himself to remain at the King Power Stadium for the next three years. He looks to revamp the team that lifted the Premier League title last year.
Injuries to central defenders Robert Huth and Wes Morgan affected the team last term so Shakespeare is looking at adding a top player as back up.

It has not even been 2 months since Craig Shakespeare was selected as the official manager of Leicester City and already he is receiving praise from football figures for what the 53 year old English tactician has accomplished in the short period of time that he has spent at the helm of the Premier League club.
Craig Shakespeare took over the first team squad of Leicester City as their new manager on March 12 of 2017 and has led them to impressive victories over: Sevilla, West Ham United, Stoke City and Sunderland.
The 53 year old manager was even recognized recently for his string of positive results as he became the only English manager to win his first 4 league matches.
Robert Huth has acknowledged the impact that Shakespeare has made and even though it has been a fairly short period of time since Craig took over, Robert Huth stated that his influence is being perceived by the entire squad as the German defender said: Continue reading Robert Huth feels the impact that Craig Shakespeare has done
Leicester City has gone from being the champions of the Premier League during the season of 2015-16 to being dropped into the bottom section of that same league.
Taking into consideration the fact that a number of highly-rated and experienced managers such as: Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte, JurgenKlopp and Jose Mourinho joined the English League, it was going to be extremely difficult for Leicester City to defend their title but they weren’t expected to do so disastrously as they are doing now.
After 21 Premier League matches being played, Leicester City is currently pitted at the 15th spot and to make matters even worse, Robert Huth recently stated that his team got a lucky break when they faced off with Middlesbrough on January 2 of 2017.
In the 2nd half of Leicester City’s match against Middlesbrough, Robert Huth brought down AdamaTraore but the referee did not give away a penalty kick which is something that surprised the 32 year old German defender and he made his voice be heard in a post-match interview as Robert Huth said: Continue reading Robert Huth admits that Middlesbrough deserved a penalty kick
In the world of football, being a defender is not a highly coveted or praised position as the players which usually get more recognition are the offensive players that are able to score goals and steal the spotlight such as: Lionel Messi, C.Ronaldo, etc…
One of the reasons of why having to play as a defender isn’t as enticing as other roles in the pitch is due to the fact that any mistake which is made in the own half can have a huge consequence as a penalty kick or another dangerous set-piece can be given away.
Leicester City’s Robert Huth is not a defender that is not known for giving away a lot of penalty kicks but he was recently called out by the referee R.Madley during Leicester City’s league match against Tottenham Hotspur which was played on October 29.
That match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur concluded in a 1-1 draw but the only goal that Tottenham was able to score occurred at the 44th minute when the referee allowed a penalty kick in favor of the home team after Robert Huth appeared to have brought down Tottenham’s Vincent Janssen.

Robert Huth believes that Leicester City’s form in the Premier League will improve as the season goes by.
He believes that the players have yet to find their form this season and that gradually this will come back. He admitted that it is harder to win games this season as the opposition know how they are going to play and that they are ready to defend.
He said that the team is still working on changing their playing style and that it will take time before they adapt to a new way of playing. He said that they need to take control of the game now as the opposition chooses to sit back and wait. He believes that is the main reason why they are failing to win games as they did last season.
Robert Huth also admitted that opposing teams are more motivated to beat them this season as they are the champions. However, he believes that things will change as the season goes on and that the primary objective of the team is to avoid relegation.

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri reckons that the club are back to their best after managing a 0-0 draw with Arsenal. This was only their first point of the season after having been beaten on the opening day by newly promoted Hull City.
It was a major shock as Leicester were expected to comfortably win the game given the opposition’s troubles on and off the field. Leicester clearly missed the experience of German defender Robert Huth at the back. The German was unavailable for the opening game since he was serving a suspension picked up from last season. Continue reading Leicester City Secure Clean Sheet
Being a Premiership winning manager means immense attention from all quarters and Claudio Ranieri is beginning to realize that.
He jokes if he had accepted each and every invitation he had received during the off season, it would have taken him almost a decade to visit the places.
The wise, old fellow that he is, Ranieri can be trusted not to let the stardom affect his personality or attitude and he, at least as of now, definitely looks unaffected.
He is speaking absolutely the same way he had been for the past 12 months; the touch of arrogance is nowhere. He is humble as ever and is also trying to keep himself and his team away from any hype.
In fact, he is starting with the same target that he had started with previous season which is safety from the drop. Can you imagine a reigning champion to worry about slipping down to a lower division the following season?
