Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers claims Chelsea have the advantage over Leicester City in Tuesday’s Premier League game against Leicester City because of squad depth.

“There’s no question the game being on the Tuesday will benefit those squads who have a lot of the top-class players, and Chelsea have one of the best in Europe,” said Leicester manager Rodgers.

“They can rotate and make the changes to make that physical difference and it won’t make a massive difference to the quality. The extra day would have helped us

“It doesn’t mean we’ll be any less prepared or ready but it would have been nice if we could have played on the Wednesday, especially with the Final last Saturday and then with the last Premier League fixtures being on Sunday.

“We haven’t talked about [fixture problems] all year and I’m not going to moan too much about it now but it certainly would have helped us.”
