Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is hopeful defender Jonny Evans would be fit to play against Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

The defender came off in the warm up against Newcastle earlier this month but Rodgers will give him as long as possible to prove his fitness.

Rodgers said: “We’re giving him another day, he has progressed really well in the last 24 hours. He looked very good and we’ll see what the reaction is after that and make the final decision tomorrow.

“It’s just a discussion between myself and Jonny, you always have to speak to the players and Jonny is a warrior. If there is any way he can play – even if he is not 100 per cent – he will be out there.

“It’s going to be a physical game so we need good physicality and running ability, if that’s hindered in any way it may make it difficult for him.”
