Training Exclusive: Manchester City

The Foxes have been back on the training pitch this week ahead of their Premier League clash against Manchester City on Saturday.

“We have no new injuries, which is a good thing,” he said. “Otherwise Robert Huth and Matty James need a little more time. They have little injuries.

“There are also other players like the international players who may have some tiredness, which is normal.

“We have good attention, good focus on this game and they had good results for their national team. [Vicente] Iborra is available. Ben Chilwell also; it was a little injury for the last game.

“[James] is not yet ready at the moment but he has made progress in training, like Huth, and we’ll see when they can come back into the group.

“I hope we can recover them at the end of November or the beginning of December.”
