Leicester boss Puel confirms Morgan setback

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has confirmed a hamstring injury for Wes Morgan after victory over Huddersfield Town.

Morgan was forced off in the first period after picking up the problem following a challenge on Huddersfield's Steve Mounie.

Meanwhile, Puel confirmed Jamie Vardy was not involved in the clash as a precaution having injured his groin against Liverpool on Saturday.

“The bad thing today is we lost Wes [Morgan], I don't know how long for," said Puel. “It's a bad injury, a hamstring injury, he slipped on the pitch in the first half.

“With all the tiredness from the games and we can see a lot of injuries with all the teams. It is difficult.

“Jamie [Vardy] isn't long-term. He is not bad. He felt something against Liverpool and it was a precaution about him.

We will see for the next game – it's an important game for him in the cup. We will see. We will not take a risk, but it isn't a bad injury."
