Jamie Vardy said Claude Puel’s style of football does not suit him but added it was up to him to make sure the situation improves.

The Leicester striker, who is easing his way back from a groin injury, should return to the starting XI at Chelsea on Saturday after sitting out the Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat by Manchester City. He has scored five league goals this season. Last season he hit 20, playing under Puel from October, and will struggle to match that this season.

Vardy, who retired from England duty in August, received a three-game ban for a tackle on Wolves’ Matt Doherty in the same month. He has played in 13 out of Leicester 17 league games but is the first to admit he would have liked to have contributed more goals.

Asked if Puel’s possession-based style suits him, Vardy told Sky Sports News: “Does it? No, but is that down to me to adapt to it? Yes. And obviously the only way I’m going to do that and keep progressing is working hard on the training field.

“It does get a bit frustrating but we are transitioning into a different style of play. I think we’ve just got to keep working hard on it and eventually it will get us going forward that bit quicker, because when we get into attacking positions the ball will get picked out for some of my runs.”
