Adjust Comment Print

Claude Puel says his focus is on Daniel Amartey after the defender suffered a horror injury in the closing stages of Leicester City's last-gasp 1-1 Premier League draw with West Ham on Saturday. "I haven't seen it so I don't give my opinion".

The low of Amartey's injury came shortly after the high of Wilfred Ndidi scoring a last-minute equaliser for Leicester, who had been behind since Fabian Balbuena's strike after half an hour.

Following the session on Friday, Vardy posted on Instagram: 'Ready for the game tomorrow... back to full strength'. He needs to have it examined and then we will see after. However, Puel chose to leave out his star striker and revert to a 4-2-3-1 formation with Kelechi Iheanacho leading the line in attack.

"It is hard to find a good consistency and concentration and perhaps he is a little up and down but it is a normal thing. I think that tonight when we are playing eleven against eleven, most part of the game is on their side (half), we dominate actions". But West Ham fans still praised his display.

"He always has good attributes and he will score a lot of goals and will be fine with a lot of good stability and to play regularly".

Excluding Vardy from the starting line-up could prove to have disastrous consequences for Puel, and is unlikely to go down well with the club's supporters who have witnessed their club lose four of their last six top-flight games.

"When Leicester were champions, the season after it was hard to have the consistency in Premier League and Europe".
