Vardy out for up to month

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is set for up to a month on the sidelines after aggravating a hamstring injury

 in Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Liverpool.

The 34-year-old was treated on the pitch after a collision with Reds’ defender Joel Matip, but opted to play on to the final whistle.

He had missed the 26 December defeat by Manchester City with the same injury.

“It could be the next three to four weeks,” said manager Brendan Rodgers of Vardy’s absence.

Vardy, who has scored 11 goals in 22 appearances this season, adds to a lengthy injury list at Leicester that features another seven players.

The Foxes’ forward options appear to be limited to Ademola Lookman and Ayoze Perez for the next few weeks.

Rodgers said the demands of a hectic fixture schedule and the pressure that Covid-related absences are having on squads contributed

to Vardy’s injury.

“It’s the combination of games we have had – and the recovery time – that has made it difficult for him.”
