Rodgers – Vardy’s injury issues are a concern

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted concern over Jamie Vardy's series of muscle injuries.

Claude Puel: It’s a mistake to label my style as boring

  Leicester City's new manager Claude Puel has insisted that branding his style of play as boring is a mistake after getting off to a winning start with the club on Sunday. Jamie Vardy scored his sixth goal of the season to give Leicester a one nil lead against Everton before Demarai Gray scored the second through a deflected effort to ensure that they ran out 2 nil winners against Everton at the King Power Stadium.
