leicester City manager said the Nigerian forward was dropped due to illness but expressed hope he’ll recover timely to face Burnley on Saturday.
Iheanacho has made
nine English Premier League appearances this season and has struggled to break in to the Leicester City starting line-up.
Burnley are currently sixth in the EPL after their 2-1 win away at Bournemouth on Wednesday while Leicester City moved up to ninth in the log after their win over Spurs.
Puel told reporters, “Iheanacho was ill but I hope he will be back.
“We have to be careful. We can watch Burnley and they’re a different team to last season. The table doesn’t lie. With confidence, they are a strong and physical team. It’s a big challenge for us.
“There are no new injuries. Christian Fuchs will come back also to the squad but Huth and James are unavailable.
“I’m not just thinking about 11 players because we have to play one game every three days and it’s not possible to keep fresh. For the squad, it’s important to give game time to other players in the team.
