Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers provides injury update on Jamie Vardy

Leicester dominate West Ham

Leicester City’s form had dipped off in recent weeks.

The Foxes had lost to both Aston Villa and Southampton in their last few matches.

However, Brendan Rodgers’ side were back to winning ways on Wednesday.

Leicester played host to West Ham United, and well and truly dominated the Hammers.

Harvey Barnes opened the scoring for Leicester in the 24th minute, with Ricardo Pereira adding a second just before the interval.

Mark Noble did pull one back for the London outfit shortly after the break from the spot.

But Leicester continued to dominate proceedings, with a late Ayoze Perez brace putting the result beyond doubt.

Vardy & Mendy updates

Whilst Rodgers and co will no doubt have been pleased to register such an emphatic victory on the back of some poor results, Leicester did suffer a couple of blows vs the Hammers.

Leicester would lose two players to injury in the opening half on Wednesday, in the form of Jamie Vardy and Nampalys Mendy:

After the West Ham tie, Brendan Rodgers would provide updates on both players.

The Leicester boss stated that Mendy suffered an issue to his knee, whilst Vardy had a problem with his glute:

“Papy’s was his knee, but [we’re] not fully sure on how long that will be.

“Jamie, thankfully, wasn’t his hamstring, it was just his glute. He felt a sensation in it, and it sort of spasmed really in that period.

“We’ll have a look at that tomorrow, but it didn’t look too serious.” As quoted by Leicester’s official website.
