Puel considers resting Maguire for Leicester's weekend PL game

Leicester boss Claude Puel says he is considering resting centre-back Harry Maguire in Saturday's game against Huddersfield.

"Harry has played a lot of games, but I will analyse it," said Puel ahead of his side's home game against Huddersfield on Saturday.

"To participate in a competition like the World Cup is tough to come back with good focus and freshness and concentration, this is a common thing.

"But if I rest him for this game and we lose, I know I will be criticised.

"But it is important to keep players fresh and we must have a good focus about this. Players need to have some protection."
