As it stands, the only enforced possible absentee for the Foxes could be winger Demarai Gray, who sat out Sunday's victory as a precaution after showing flu symptoms on the weekend.

"We had everyone in today recovering and a working group," Rodgers said. "Demarai had flu over the course of the weekend so we’ll see how he is for Wednesday."

With another seven fixtures to go in December, the Northern Irishman revealed he and his coaching team will evaluate the situation and the necessity to rotate over the festive period.
