Brendan Rodgers provides Jamie Vardy and Leicester City injury update ahead of Chelsea clash

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has said that the Foxes have no new injury concerns ahead of their Premier League match against Chelsea on Saturday, with Jamie Vardy fit enough to start the game.

Frank Lampard’s men travel to the King Power Stadium looking to close the gap on their opponents, who sit in third place in the table, eight points ahead of the Blues.

While Chelsea had a week off, the Foxes were in midweek action when they crashed out of the Carabao Cup at the semi-final stage against Aston Villa.

Striker Vardy came on as a second-half substitute during the match after recovering from a glute injury sustained in the 4-1 win over West Ham United.
