Claude Puel wary of Foxes fatigue

Leicester boss Claude Puel hopes his players will have recovered from their midweek draw at Fulham when they host Tottenham in the late kick off on Saturday.

The Foxes fought back from 1-0 down to claim a share of the spoils at Craven Cottage in midweek but Puel feels that may have taken a toll on his squad.

“Firstly, it is important to recover and have a good rest because we have a lot of games,” he told the club’s official website.

“Their [Tottenham’s] players have the habit to play international games and Premier League games and I think they can manage.

“They have a big squad to find a solution while it is more difficult for us to put in place the team. We’ll see if we can recover some players before Saturday.”

Puel has a few selection concerns ahead of the visit of Tottenham and key men Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire are rated as doubts.

Maguire and Vardy both missed the draw at Fulham due to respective knee and groin issues and it remains to be seen whether or not the game against Spurs will come too soon for the star duo.

Leicester are 3.60 to take all three points on Saturday and Puel’s men can be backed at 7.50 to win and both teams to score in the PRICE BOOSTS. Tottenham are 2.05 to claim the win and a draw can be backed at 3.50.
