Claudio Ranieri has confirmed that Danny Drinkwater is close to full fitness and is hopeful he can start against West Ham on Saturday.
Drinkwater returned from a knee injury last week against Everton on Boxing Day, as a halftime substitute, and is almost ready to start. Speaking ahead of their New Year's Eve clash with West Ham, Ranieri revealed he was optimist about the chances of Drinkwater featuring in the starting XI. When asked if Drinkwater would start, Ranieri said: "Could be. He played 45 minutes [against Everton] and he has worked well so he could start from the beginning." A return to the starting XI for Drinkwater would likely result in either Andy King or Daniel Amartey dropping to the bench. Fri, Dec 30, 2016 05:43:00 PM
