- Leicester City face Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League on Friday (8pm kick-off)
- Manager Brendan Rodgers has provided a fitness update on his squad
- James Maddison and Dennis Praet will miss that visit to Anfield
Maddison was taken off during City's 2-0 win at West Ham United before the FIFA World Cup break and is yet to feature. Leicester's No.10 also did not appear for England in Qatar. Praet, on the other hand, had to leave the field during Boxing Day's 3-0 home reverse to Newcastle United.
The Foxes visit Anfield to take on Liverpool in the Premier League on Friday (8pm kick-off).
"[Maddison] won’t be available for the game," Rodgers told the media at LCFC Training Ground on Wednesday. "He was with Mark [Waller], our doctor, getting some special advice in London today so I’ll wait to hear from them later on.
The medical team and the Club have gone down to London to get another opinion on it and to see where he’s at.Brendan Rodgers on James Maddison
"He hasn’t trained with the squad. He was clearly getting treatment out [in Qatar] and he and the medical team deemed him okay to train. He was available for games (for England). He’s come back here, looked to do some work, and then felt a pain in a different part of his knee.
"The medical team have assessed that. He tried to go out and do some multidirectional work and he was getting a pain from that. The medical team and the Club have gone down to London to get another opinion on it and to see where he’s at. That’s where we’re up to at this moment in time."
On Praet, Rodgers added: "He won’t be available either. He’s still sore and struggling with his side so we’ll look to see where he’s at."
