Jamie Vardy doubtful for Leicester's game with Aston Villa due to a calf issue


Jamie Vardy injury scare for Leicester as striker doubtful to feature in Foxes’ clash with Aston Villa on Sunday as he undergoes a scan on a calf issue

  • Striker Jamie Vardy complained of a calf problem during training this week 
  • The Foxes frontman has been sent for a scan to reveal the extent of the damage 
  • Vardy has been rated doubtful to feature in Leicester’s match with Aston Villa 

Jamie Vardy has given Leicester an injury scare ahead of Sunday’s clash with Aston Villa after complaining of a calf problem in training.

The forward, who has five goals in his opening four matches, was sent for a scan on Friday to establish the extent of the damage and is rated doubtful.

Vardy’s absence would be a huge blow to Leicester, who are looking to bounce back from the 3-0 home defeat by West Ham before the international break, which ended their 100 per cent start to the campaign.

Vardy is one of a number of players who could be missing for Leicester as they try to put the brakes on Villa, who beat Liverpool 7-2 a fortnight ago in a remarkable match at Villa Park.

Defender Caglar Soyuncu faces a significant spell on the sidelines with a thigh injury, while fellow centre-back Jonny Evans is also doubtful for the Villa game after picking up an abdominal problem with Northern Ireland.

Wilfred Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira and Daniel Amartey are long-term absentees while James Maddison has yet to start a league match this term due to hip and calf problems, and Dennis Praet may also be absent due to knee trouble.
