Leicester City vs Man City - Leicester to take late decision on Vardy ahead of Man City visit

Leicester will make a late decision on whether to hand striker Jamie Vardy a second start in five days in the Boxing Day clash with Manchester City.

Former England star Vardy netted the winner in Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Chelsea, having now fully recovered from previous groin issues.

Foxes boss Claude Puel will leave it late to gauge Vardy’s readiness for another start though, with Matty James and Daniel Amartey still long-term absentees.

Manchester City will check on midfielder Fernandinho ahead of the match after the Brazilian missed Saturday’s loss to Crystal Palace with a thigh problem.

The game may come too soon for David Silva (hamstring), although the playmaker has returned to light training, while defenders Vincent Kompany and Danilo are again doubtful.

Left-back Benjamin Mendy (knee) and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo (Achilles) are long-term absentees.
