Vardy, 31, netted a penalty in a 2-0 success over Watford on Saturday, but the Club's all-time Premier League top goalscorer was withdrawn in the 72nd minute.

Speaking to the national media on Monday afternoon, Puel said: "For the moment, I don’t know my starting line-up because I have some problems with different players.

"I will see tomorrow, but I cannot say the players who have the problems. We will see who is available to play this match. [Vardy] felt something, but I will see with our medical staff."

The conditions of England defender Harry Maguire (knee) and Algeria's Rachid Ghezzal (leg) will also be monitored, although Puel says he will follow the advice of his medical team.

Both trained on Monday, alongside Matty James (Achilles), who represented the Club's Development Squad in a 1-0 success over Sparta Prague B last Thursday.
