The Foxes defeated Southampton 1-0 at Wembley Stadium on Sunday to reach the Club's first Emirates FA Cup Final in 52 years, courtesy of Kelechi Iheanacho's second-half strike.

On Thursday, it's back to Premier League duties for City with the visit of Sam Allardyce's Baggies to King Power Stadium and Rodgers says there are no new injury issues to contend with ahead of Leicester's 32nd league outing of the 2020/21 campaign.

"There’s nothing new to what we had at the weekend, it’ll be similar guys available," the Northern Irishman confirmed. "There’s nobody else coming in who will be fit.

"Ricky (Ricardo Pereira) is coming back from a long-term injury. I'm obviously careful with him.

It’ll be a very dangerous game for us. They’ve shown against Chelsea and Southampton they’re a very dangerous team.

"He took a blow to his calf at the weekend, but hopefully he should be fine."

Speaking more generally about the clash, Rodgers added: "It’ll be a very dangerous game for us.

"They’ve shown against Chelsea and Southampton they’re a very dangerous team. Sam sets them up and they’ve been defensively strong.

"They haven't conceded too many goals and they’ve also got players who are dynamic and can cause you a problem."
