The Foxes head into their final three fixtures of the 2018/19 campaign on the back of a 2-2 draw at West Ham United - which included a first start for Marc Albrighton since January.

Albrighton, 29, had been absent for just under three months through a hamstring injury and, while Rodgers says he is not yet ‘fully fit’, there are no new concerns ahead of Sunday.

“None at all,” the Foxes manager said, when asked to detail any recent injuries on Friday afternoon. “Everyone is training and working well, so there’s nothing new.

It comes with work, training, mentality and confidence. The players are showing it every day in training, we’re taking steps, and training allows us to develop.

“Marc is obviously not fully fit now because he’s played 64 minutes in the past three months, but he’s working in training.”

Expanding more on the past week of training, Rodgers revealed how pleased he has been with the players’ approach to his methods since his arrival at the Club in February.

“They’ve all shown quality,” he added. “That’s been the nice thing to see. What’s important for all the players, even if they’re not starting… it’s not just the 11 who start, it’s the 11 who finish.

“For the modern game now and how you want to change the momentum in games, it's important. I always say the players should suffer in training, they need to work very, very hard.

“We want to play an aggressive pressing game and then there comes an intensity with that. It doesn’t come with the click of the fingers, it takes work.

“It comes with work, training, mentality and confidence. The players are showing it every day in training, we’re taking steps, and training allows us to develop.”
