Leicester ace Jonny Evans set to miss Tottenham clash on MD 38

According to Leicestershire Live, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed that defender Jonny Evans is unlikely to be available for their final Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

Leicester take on Tottenham on the final matchday of the season at the King Power Stadium in a game that could have huge repercussions for both clubs. For the Foxes, following their midweek defeat to Chelsea, they will need all three points if they are to gain qualification for the UEFA Champions League next season.

As for Tottenham, the Londoners are currently sixth in the table, seven points below Leicester in fourth, so a top-four finish is out of question. However, with clubs like West Ham United and Everton lurking behind, it becomes important that we pick up maximum points in the remaining two games to be assured of a spot in the UEFA Europa League for the next term.

And, Evans’ absence will be as big a boost for Tottenham, as big a blow it is to Leicester. Speaking after the defeat to Chelsea on Tuesday night, Rodgers revealed that the Northern Irish defender may have played his last game of the season. (h/t Leicestershire Live)

“He’s still sore. He’s unlikely for the weekend, so he’s probably played his last game.”

Evans has been a reliable player for Leicester at the heart of the defence and had played a key part in their promising campaign until picking up an injury earlier this month. While he was rushed back for the FA Cup final against Chelsea, he failed to last even for half an hour and had to be subbed off. And, now he is set to miss the Foxes’ final game of the campaign.
