Shakey Hopeful On De Laet

Shakey Hopeful On De Laet

Craig Shakespeare has said he's hopeful that Ritchie De Laet will be fit for the Palace game.

Speaking to lcfc.com Shakey said that despite De Laet being substituted in the game against Brighton after complaining of a tight chest, he has recovered well and the initial concerns are no longer an issue.

'He's been checked over and, by all accounts, he's ok and is going to be fine for Saturday. There are a few carrying knocks and they'll be assessed before we regroup on Friday. We'd expect everyone to come through, we've got a strong sports medicine and science department, so we'll wheel them out!'

Speaking more specifically about the Palace game - click here - Shakespeare said that Leicester would be fully focused on the game and won't let our league position let us get carried away.

'Performances and where we are in the table suggest we're doing something right and the players have to take credit for that, the spirit, the togetherness, the work ethic has gone up two fold. Through that, you get what you deserve but life experience in football tells you to not get carried away.'

Should Leicester pick up all three points at the weekend, it will go down in the history books as our best start to a season at home in 106 years.

There's the motivation for the lads!
