Vardy a doubt for Man City match

Premier League top scorer Jamie Vardy is a doubt for the Foxes’ meeting with Manchester City on Monday because of illness.

The England striker felt unwell ahead of Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool, and although he started the match at Anfield, came off after 69 minutes complaining of a fever.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri says he substituted the 28-year-old because he wanted to give his star striker every chance of making the starting line-up against third-placed City at the King Power Stadium.

“I have to look at Jamie Vardy over the next three days and see if his reaction is good or not,” the Italian said.

“He played with a fever. I didn’t want to give him more minutes. I wanted to preserve him.”

Ranieri hopes his Leicester players will bounce back from Saturday’s defeat, and extend their lead at the top of the Premier League with victory over Manuel Pellegrini’s side on Monday.

“We have another big rock against us but it is okay, we are ready. Now we have to clean our minds and restart,” he continued.

“The players don’t like losing and that is good. I love this spirit.”
