Jamie Vardy will take out his frustration at not playing for England during their World Cup qualifier, against Liverpool this weekend according to his teammate Andy King.
King told the Sun that Vardy will be raring to go when the Reds host the Foxes at Anfield on Saturday.
“He didn’t play for England so I’m sure he will be chomping at the bit. Hopefully, he will be fresh for the weekend,” King told the Sun.
Vardy scored during Leicester’s 2-1 victory over Swansea City in the previous round of Premier League fixtures and found the back of the net against Liverpool last season.
The 29-year-old was an unused substitute for England with Sam Allardyce opting to field Harry Kane and Daniel Sturridge instead. Vardy may be paired with Leicester City’s record signing Islam Slimani who joined for £29 million from Sporting Lisbon.
“He can take some of the pressure off Vards. We’ve seen his record in Portugal so hopefully he can be a big signing for us,” King went onto say during an interview with the Sun.
Meanwhile, German goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler is expected to replace an injured Kasper Schmeichel.
