Leicester City manager Claude Puel is expected to drop Jamie Vardy for their clash against West Ham after the striker had to leave the pitch during Arsenal’s game against the Foxes on Monday.

Jamie Vardy left the pitch late into the game after Leicester had used all their subs. With the game lost, the England forward, who has collected more interviews about turning down Arsenal than goals scored, was said to have a dodgy stomach.

In short, Mesut Ozil gave him the shits.


Although Vardy has been suffering all week because of that stomach complaint, the Daily Telegraph, in an exclusive, believe he will be dropped for their game against West Ham on Saturday in a move that has angered Vardy.

That, alone, seems like reason enough to cover this report.

The Telegraph believe Leicester will use the fact he has not trained all week to explain why he is not being selected however it also follows on from his wife ‘liking’ a Twitter post that criticised Puel’s tactics for not getting the best out of Vardy.
