Leicester City boss Claude Puel could be without Jamie Vardy for Wednesday’s trip to Fulham, with the striker managing a groin injury.
Leicester City boss Claude Puel admits he is unsure if striker Jamie Vardy requires surgery on a troublesome groin injury.
Vardy scored in Leicester’s Premier League defeat of Watford on Saturday but has been playing through the pain.
The former England striker is a doubt for Wednesday’s trip to Fulham, which is a reunion with former Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri, who won the 2015-16 title at the club.
And Puel is unsure whether Vardy will be able to take his place in the Leicester squad as they seek to extend a five-match unbeaten run in the league.
“I will see tomorrow,” Puel told reporters on Monday. “I cannot say which players have a problem but I do not know at the moment my starting players in two days.
“We will see. I don’t know for the moment. I know he felt something but we will see with him and my medical staff.”
“Tomorrow will be another day, it will be for Jamie and for all the other players that feel something [an injury]. I don’t know the players that are available for this game.
“It’s an important game and I hope the other players will be ready in their minds to play and replace another team-mate.”
Vardy has scored five goals in 12 Premier League appearances for Leicester so far this season.
