FPL Watch: Can Leicester City afford not to start their main man?
There has been recent concern surrounding Leicester’s top scorer Jamie Vardy. The evergreen forward limped out of the club’s clash with Brentford at half-time, prompting speculation that he could be out of action for some time.
But Brendan Rodgers has since put such fears to bed, assuring that Vardy is “fine” after the penalty shootout win over Brighton. Speaking to the media, Rodgers revealed:
“He trained this morning and joined back in the group. All the guys are fine.”
Fit to play, Vardy will try to start another scoring streak this weekend after it ended against Brentford.
The number nine had netted in his previous four Premier League games before heading to west London, where he only had six touches in 45 minutes.
While this does not make him an automatic starter, especially given the form of Patson Daka, it certainly increases Vardy’s chances of featuring from the off against Arsenal, especially given his impressive record against the weekend’s opposition.
