- Brendan Rodgers has provided a fitness update on his Leicester City squad
- Jonny Evans' calf issue will be assessed by the Club's medical team this week
- The Foxes host Manchester City at King Power Stadium on Saturday
- Wilfred Ndidi is also back in training after a hamstring issue 

The Foxes captain has been absent for three games with a calf issue. Leicester have also been without Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring) since the 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest earlier this month, while Marc Albrighton (illness) returned in the 4-0 victory at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Ndidi has returned to training for the Foxes, who welcome Pep Guardiola's Man City to King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday (12:30pm BST kick-off). The Foxes have won their last two, also overcoming Leeds United on home soil, before the success at Molineux.

When you’ve got players coming back, it gives you a better choice. The guys have been great and it’s very important to have a bench that can affect the game.

"In terms of the squad, we’ll monitor Jonny over the next few games," manager Brendan Rodgers told the media on Thursday. "Wilfred Ndidi has been back training with the squad. The most important thing is he’s back training in the squad and he’s looked fine with the players.

"Availability is the important thing and thankfully he’s available. Marc Albrighton was obviously back last weekend. We’re all fine."

Rodgers Previews Man City Encounter

Manager Brendan Rodgers speaks to the national media inside the King Power Centre at LCFC Training Ground.

With players close to returns from injury, coinciding with an upturn in Leicester's form, Rodgers is enthusiastic that his side will benefit. 

"It’s a nice [problem] to have because, if we’ve got players in form playing well, that’s what you want," the Northern Irishman added.

"Then, when you’ve got players coming back, it gives you a better choice. The guys have been great and it’s very important to have a bench that can affect the game. All they can do is train well and we’ll pick a team and a plan that we think can get a result."
