Leicester City are all of the sudden lacking striking options after the news that Shinji Okazaki could miss up to two weeks with a knee injury.
Manager Claude Puel confirmed that the Japan international sustained a minor knee knock and will definitely miss the trip to face Manchester City at the Etihad. "[There has been a] little injury with Okazaki, he will not be available," Puel said on Thursday. "He received a kick on his knee and I think he won’t be available for two weeks." Leicester still have Jamie Vardy and normally play with just one forward, but the absence of Riyad Mahrez saw them use two up top at the weekend. The injury to Okazaki means Kelechi Iheanacho could retain his place when the Foxes face his former club on Saturday, while Fousseni Diabate or Demarai Gray could start on the left wing.
