Leicester City boss Claude Puel has confirmed Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy will be fit to face Chelsea after recovering from a groin injury.

The England international missed Leicester City’s FA Cup draw at Fleetwood on Saturday but will travel with the Leicester squad to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Leicester City Captain Wes Morgan and defender Danny Simpson remain out with a hamstring problems but Vicente Iborra (hamstring) Christian Fuchs (illness) are available for the Foxes.

“He will be available for the game, there is no problem with Jamie. He can train well this week,” Puel said ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Leicester on Saturday.

“I don’t know how long Wes will stay outside the squad but I hope to have some good news and hope I can speak about the end of the injury.

“Simpson can run a little which is good news and we will see when he can come back into the team.”
