Leicester City have received a boost according to national press, as talismanic striker Jamie Vardy may return soon from injury.

West Ham United were the team who had to suffer a Leicester City resurgence on Wednesday. With the Foxes 4-1 winners, after some simply wonderfully committed and astute play all game. Kelechi Iheanacho supplied two assists, Harvey Barnes also facilitated too, along with an Ayoze Perez brace and a Ricardo Pereira help and finish.

This was a much-needed upturn for the East Midlands outfit, who lost to Southampton at home and Burnley away in their previous two Premier League fixtures. Manager Brendan Rodgers stuck to his philosophy and it paid dividends for the King Power club.

Not only was this a great win for Leicester, but the upbeat atmosphere also generated by the Blue Army assisted the team. It is also a good sign going forward, not to mention a fresh standard to constantly aspire to.

FA Cup next up

Subsequent to defeating the Hammers, Brentford entertain the Foxes in the FA Cup fourth round at Griffin Park on Saturday. Rodgers will make a few alterations to his side, but it won’t be unrecognizable – like the almost reserve XI that beat West Ham in December.

Vardy fitness

According to Telegraph, Jamie Vardy won’t be fit for the Bees clash at the weekend. Though he doesn’t have a hamstring injury as first feared, he will not be risked.
