What they’re saying
Leicester City manager Rodgers on Jamie Vardy’s status: “We’ll see how he is over the next couple of days and hopefully he can be available for the weekend but we’ll see about that in the next 48 hours. It’s important to get all the players back not just Jamie. We’ve got a number of players, very important players, that are out. But at the front end of the pitch, of course, offers a threat with his speed, his movement and how clinical he is.”
Arsenal boss Arteta praises Thomas Partey’s full debut: “We know that with the price we paid for him and the profile of the player that he is that he is going to have a lot of people looking at him every single game. This is about the structure we have as a team, the flow, the unity and the cohesion that we need in our team. He’s one piece of that. Hopefully he’s a big piece.”
