Leicester City boss Claude Puel reveals that Jamie Vardy is fit and available for Saturday's trip to Premier League champions Chelsea.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has revealed that Jamie Vardy is fit and available for Saturday's trip to Premier League champions Chelsea.

Vardy has missed Leicester's last two matches with a groin problem, and it had been thought that the England international would again be absent at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Puel, however, has said that the 31-year-old "trained well this week", and will make his return against the Blues.

"He will be available. He trained well this week. He is available for the game," Puel told reporters.

The Foxes will be without the services of key defenders Danny Simpson and Wes Morgan, however, as they look to make it back-to-back Premier League wins this weekend.

Vardy has scored nine Premier League goals in 21 appearances for Leicester during the 2017-18 campaign.
