Leicester City duo Jamie Vardy and James Maddison will miss Leicester's FA Cup tie at Stoke

Share This
Jamie Vardy and James Maddison have been ruled out of Leicester’s FA Cup tie at Stoke as they try to cure ongoing injury problems.
Vardy is managing a hip issue while Maddison has a knee problem which has ruled them out of training this week, with boss Brendan Rodgers admitting the pair have been no more than 80 per cent fit for some recent matches, meaning they will miss the third-round clash.


‘They need treatment on the injuries they’ve had,’ said Rodgers. ‘They have both done very well to play through [but] they haven’t been moving to the levels they normally are.


‘Both players at 80 per cent are still big players for us but there is an opportunity to do some work with them, with the medical team.

‘So we’ll do that this week and that would allow them to get back in next week and train, hopefully in a much better place. Otherwise they’re not going to need that period they need to recover.


‘Jamie has had an ongoing issue in his hip and groin area, certainly since I have been here, and there are certain periods where that gets worse and this is a chance for him to rest, recover and work with the medical team.


‘James has a problem at the back of his knee and we’re trying to get him through that, while he hasn’t been training a great deal. So now he can spend time on that with our therapists and hopefully the rest should help him get back to a really good level for the rest of the season.’
