Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater trained well on Thursday, following a minor groin injury, according to manager Claudio Ranieri.
Drinkwater was not available for selection for England over the international break, due to a minor groin injury, but has since recovered and could feature this weekend against Chelsea. "He is okay," Ranieri said in his weekly fitness update. "He made a very good session this morning (Thursday) and I am very happy." The Italian manager also confirmed that fellow midfielder Nampalys Mendy is fit, but still experiencing pain in his ankle. Ranieri said: "He (Mendy) came back and after half an hour went out again. It's a little problem on his ankle. He is fit but just has a little twist or tackle and the pain is very strong." The news means Drinkwater will likely feature in GW8, while Mendy may need another week of training before he returns. Oct 13 - 6:04 PM
