Claude Puel: 'Important for Leicester City to start well at Peterborough United'


Unfortunately that can often land him in a spot of bother.

Vardy was being interviewed ahead of the Foxes' FA Cup fourth round tie against Peterborough on Saturday when he was questioned about the rumours - and the 31-year-old refuted them outright.

Before kick-off, Puel made a raft of changes to his side and Merson was heavily critical of the Leicester manager for doing so.

'I appreciate a lot this player because he is a really good player, Vardy.

"I think this is the one team in the whole of the Premier League, bar the top six, that can't get into Europe and can't get relegated". I mean it's unbelievable.

Ah well, nobody gets them all right.

"If I was a Leicester fan... it's a joke, an absolute joke".

"He is learning the Premier League and he has the attributes to be a player for the future".

Ndidi scored for "The Foxes" with the last kick of the game when he chose his spot after the impressive Fousseni Diabate set him up inside the box.

Peterborough rallied in the second half and pulled a goal back after 57 minutes when Hughes scored from a corner.

With Peterborough searching for a second goal, throwing more players in attack, Diabate grabbed his second of the game to put the game beyond Peterborough, before Ndidi added gloss to the scoreline with Leicester's fifth goal in the 90th minute.

- Since his FA Cup debut in January 2016, Kelechi Iheanacho has scored more goals in the competition than any other player in this period (9).

However, Peterborough weren't ready to completely cave and Steven Taylor headed down a corner on 57 minutes for Andrew Hughes to sweep home from close range.

Who would have thought it?
