Leicester City have only one injury concern ahead of facing Chelsea at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday, with Papy Mendy set to miss the game through a neck injury.

The Foxes boss has now revealed that his team are in a good place to face Chelsea as he has a fully fit squad.

“Papy Mendy just has a slight strain in his neck, so we’ll see how he is, but apart from that, everyone else will be fine,” Rodgers said in his press conference on Monday.

“We’ve got a fully fit squad, virtually, which puts us in a good place.”

Star striker Jamie Vardy also had issues with his hip, but Rodgers is optimistic that he’d feature in the game.

“We hope so,” Rodgers told Leicestershire Live when asked if Vardy will be fit for the game against Chelsea.

“It was obviously sore and restrictive for him, so we thought we would take him off towards the end and give him some sort of breather. It was that impingement he gets on his hip.”
