Portugal international Ricardo Pereira will be phased back into action, says Brendan Rodgers.

Brendan Rodgers told the media on Monday: "Obviously, Dennis [Praet] is out for a period of time (with a hamstring complaint). Everyone else should be fine. Papy Mendy just has a slight strain in his neck, so we'll see how he is, but apart from that, everyone else will be fine. We've got a fully fit squad, virtually, which puts us in a good place."

On Ricardo Pereira's condition, as he recovers from a groin issue, the Northern Irishman added: It’s a long season. It’s great to have him back and available after 10 months or so. It’s just about timing, really. He’s going to be an important player for us in the second part of the season, but he’s available and it’s just step by step for him."

While the Foxes suffered a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea on Filbert Way in the Emirates FA Cup back in June, the last Premier League clash in Leicester ended in a 2-2 draw on 1 February, 2020.

City initially came from behind to lead at King Power Stadium, following the first of two Antonio Rüdiger headers, with Harvey Barnes and Ben Chilwell finding the net for the home side.
