League One leaders Leicester face an anxious wait to discover the extent of Aleksander Tunchev's knee injury after the Bulgaria international defender left Selhurst Park on crutches following the Foxes' FA Cup defeat to Crystal Palace.

Tunchev was stretchered off midway through the first half of Wednesday night's 2-1 defeat in south London after an accidental collision outside his own area.

"He is on crutches at the moment. It is too early to say what the full extent of the injury is at the moment but we should know more later in the week," said City manager Nigel Pearson.
