Leicester City will have to do without the services of star striker Jamie Vardy for the arrival of Tottenham on Saturday.
Vardy, a former England forward could require surgery on a recurring groin injury and will at least miss the encounter with Spurs at King Power Stadium.

French tactician Claude Puel also has injury concerns in the heart of his defence with centre-backs Harry Maguire and Jonny Evans both facing a race against time for Saturday’s evening game.
Both defenders missed out on the midweek 1-1 draw with Fulham and it’s hoped they will be able to shrug them off before third-place Tottenham come to town.
