Maddison set for Leicester return but Vardy and Maguire miss out

Maddison set for Leicester return but Vardy and Maguire miss out Leicester City manager Claude Puel has confirmed that James Maddison will be fit enough to be named in the squad to face Brighton on Saturday. Speaking at his pre-match press conference, as reported by Sky Sports News, Puel confirmed that Maddison has recovered well after dropping out of the England squad through injury. “Maddison came back in training, he can be in the squad. For Maguire, it is too early. Jamie [Vardy] had a pain in the last game and came back today. We’ll see tomorrow.” However, it is not such good news for ex-England international Jamie Vardy, who remains a doubt for the game. The meeting with Brighton has also come too quickly for defender Harry Maguire, who will not be involved in the clash at the AMEX. The Foxes are looking to make it four games without defeat on Saturday and they know that three points could take them into touching distance of the top six if other results go their way. Meanwhile, Brighton will themselves hope to get back to winning ways after losing to league strugglers Cardiff prior to the international break.

Jamie Vardy has revealed his finest season in football was fired by the remarkable ritual of drinking port the night before a game , then three cans of Red Bull and a double espresso on the day. The Leicester striker, whose 24 goals led his side to the Premier League title, said the combination was the reason

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has been ruled out of this weekend’s game against Tottenham.

The Belfast Telegraph reports that the striker will miss the game as he continues to recover from a groin injury.

The striker sat out of the midweek game against Fulham and could also be out of action for next week’s visit to Crystal Palace.

It had been suggested that the club could consider surgery to try and speed up the player’s recovery but that no longer appears to be an option.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Claude Puel admitted that the club needs to be patience in their approach with the striker.

The striker managed to find the back of the net from the penalty spot in the 2-0 victory over Watford on Saturday but was substituted in the second half. Manager Claude Puel confirmed that the Englishman is struggling with an ongoing groin problem and said that he is not sure if he will be fit enough to play in London. Puel said: “He (Vardy) felt something and we will discuss with the medical staff. I don’t know (if he needs surgery). It is a balance to know his feeling.” “Tomorrow will be another day. It will be for Jamie and other players to see how they feel.” “I don’t know who will be available for this important game. Other players must be ready in their minds to play and replace another team-mate.” Wes Morgan was also spotted limping following the victory at the King Power Stadium and may be forced to sit out the trip to face Claudio Ranieri’s side. The Foxes will be hoping that Vardy does not need surgery on the issue but he will be continued to be assessed further tomorrow.

Tottenham Hotspur caretaker manager Tim Sherwood has said that he would love to become official manager of the club, but it was not his decision to make.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich told reporters pre- game that Leonard is "questionable" ahead of Saturday. "We won ' t know until Friday or Saturday," he said. Simmons filled in admirably in game six of the Western Conference semi-finals against the Houston Rockets and was his replacement when

“Jamie won’t be available. We will protect him, he has a little pain and I hope he can recover after 10 days. If we push him perhaps it will be a big injury and I want to protect him. I hope we can have Jamie for Crystal Palace, but I am not sure. We will see if he will improve his feeling and see when we can use him.”

Vardy has been struggling with injuries on and off for some time now and they finally appear to have got the better of him.

The 31-year-old has made nine starts for the Foxes in the Premier League this season and scored five times for Puel’s men.

Jamie Vardy expected to feature against Chelsea.
Leicester City boss Claude Puel has revealed that Jamie Vardy could feature against Chelsea on Saturday. As reported by LeicestershireLive, Puel was hopeful that the striker could play some part in the game after he was rested against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup. “I hope we can have Jamie on Saturday. There wasn’t enough time for him to play today. He trained one full session and then played against Palace in the Premier League for 90 minutes. It was important to keep him fresh.” “We have to be careful to avoid another injury. It is the second time with the same groin. I hope he can play against Chelsea on Saturday.” Leicester have been eager to manage the striker carefully after a string of injuries this season. With concerns rising over his fitness levels at the King Power, Puel opted not to use him in the quarter-final clash against the Premier League champions. Despite only recently returning to training, Vardy featured in the game against Crystal Palace last weekend and is now ready to give the Foxes another fitness boost ahead of the meeting with Maurizio Sarri’s side. Vardy will be out to boost his goal tally of five on Saturday afternoon, with the Foxes aware that victory could lift them to sixth, just a point behind Manchester United.
