Brendan Rodgers
Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers speaks to the national and international media via Zoom on Monday afternoon.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Monday, Brendan Rodgers said: "He’s (Jamie Vardy) a little sore as you’d expect. He’s in really good form and hopefully he’s a quick healer and he’ll be back available fairly soon. [There's] no other [issues] than the boys that have been out; Vards (Jamie Vardy), obviously, [Dennis] Praet and Wes Morgan. Everyone else is coming through really well. Christian Fuchs has been training. He's played a great part for us in this first part of the season. He's not been involved so much of late because of the other players returning. But he’s fit and training well and he always makes himself available if he's required."

Everton produced a clinical performance to emerge 2-0 victors at King Power Stadium in December, taking home all three points thanks to a goal in each half from Richarlison and Mason Holgate.

Carlo Ancelotti's side are six points behind Leicester in the current standings, though they do have two games in hand on the Foxes.
