Harvey Barnes is likely to spend six weeks in recovery from a knee issue.

On Harvey Barnes (knee), Brendan Rodgers told the media on Monday: "We’re hopeful that he’ll be going in for surgery tomorrow. Part of the patellar is separated in the knee, that’s come away, so it’s just a repair job there and hopefully he can be back in six weeks.

"It is much better news that what we thought it could have been, especially after JJ’s (James Justin) injury, so that’s where we’re at with him."

Jonny Evans (calf), on the other hand, was set to have a scan on Monday: "Jonny’s from the old school, he’ll play through anything and everything to help out his team.

"It’s been an issue for a few weeks and, early in the game yesterday, it was aggravating it up to a point where, later on, he couldn’t continue. We’ll get a scan done on that today and see where he’s at."

Burnley-born Harvey Barnes scored his second goal in three games in all competitions at Turf Moor last season.

Despite Harvey Barnes' first-half opener, the Foxes fell to defeat on 19 January, 2020 as goals from Chris Wood and Ashley Westwood sealed a 2-1 victory for Burnley at Turf Moor, in a game which also saw Jamie Vardy denied from the penalty spot.

Earlier this season, however, the Foxes ran out as 4-2 victors at King Power Stadium, with Barnes, James Justin and Dennis Praet among the goals.
