Fabian Delph to be back soon after International Break

Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph is very much looking forward to be back amongst the action after the international break.

The former Aston Villa man moved to the Etihad stadium in the summer against the advice of many. Delph was seen as a spare man who would fill up the home grown spots in the squad.

Claudio Ranieri believes that star striker Jamie Vardy is expected to be fit

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri believes that star striker Jamie Vardy is expected to be fit for the league match against Tottenham. This match comes just days after the two teams met at White Hart Lane for an FA Cup fixture. The match finished as a 2-2 draw, which meant that Leicester have not won in the last four matches of all competitions.

This is a significant drop in form and one that threatens the club’s top four position. Leicester have been considered as title challengers in the last few weeks after they went past Christmas while maintaining their position near the top.

However, failure to win four matches in succession is likely to take the confidence out of the team. It becomes harder to win games in the future and the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham are primed to take over the second spot from Leicester. Ranieri has been able to get the best out of the players so far, but even he has struggled to cope with the absence ofVardy. The 29-year-old is the top scorer in the Premier League with 15 goals in 20 appearances. However, he has missed the last couple of matches due to an injury, but he is set to return for this crucial away trip against Spurs. Continue reading “Claudio Ranieri believes that star striker Jamie Vardy is expected to be fit”

I thought at the start of the season we would have enough to stay in the Premier League but we have not done enough. You have to come back as strong as posible.” Continue reading “Steve Bruce says that his team hasn’t been good enough as they suffered relegation”
