Leicester City

Puel ponders changes after 'two string games'

28th December 2018, 15:42 by Simon Barlow

Foxes boss Claude Puel has confirmed Jamie Vardy is fit to face Cardiff on Saturday but he could look to rest some of his star men.

Puel could give some of the players who have performed incredibly over the past two games a break after he selected the same starting line-ups for the victories over Chelsea and Manchester City.

The Frenchman could be tempted to give Vardy a rest, particularly after he appeared to pick up a knock before coming off late on against the reigning Premier League champions.

But Puel said: "He's not injured. Like other players he played two strong games. We will see tomorrow."

Hamza Choudhury is another who could drop out, despite two impressive displays in midfield, with Demarai Gray pushing for a start.

"I don't know my starting XI for tomorrow," Puel added on Friday.

"It's always difficult after two strong games. I think all my players are ready to play and to perform. The most important thing is to be ready for a different team. Because people think it will be easy, to perform and win against Cardiff. We beat Manchester City and Chelsea, but now it's another way and another game."
