Brendan Rodgers gives latest injury news on Leicester City for Tottenham Hotspur clash

Brendan Rodgers has provided the latest injury news on Leicester City ahead of their match against Tottenham Hotspur. The Premier League fixture will take place at North London on Sunday in a crucial game that could determine the top-four race.

Leicester have some injury concerns to deal with coming into this league fixture, but they will be boosted by the latest developments on their key duo. Speaking in the pre-match press conference (h/t Leicester City official website), Rodgers has revealed that Timothy Castagne and Jamie Vardy are recovering well as they gear up to face Tottenham.

‘We just had Timothy Castagne come off in the game. He has had a scan and everything’s fine and all clear so that’s good. Apart from that, everyone’s fit and healthy. Jamie’s come through well. It’s good for him to get another 60 minutes.”

That being said, the Foxes have two injury concerns to take care of, although they have been affected by it for quite some time. Wilfred Ndidi and Ryan Bertrand have already been ruled out with knee injuries for a while, and they will not be able to make it in time for the game against Spurs.

Can Spurs get over their slump?

Castagne’s update would be welcomed by the visitors, considering how crucial he is to their system. He was involved in a clash during the first leg of the semi-finals against AS Roma in the Europa League. However, the fullback who can play equally well on opposite ends would be in line to feature on Sunday.

As for Vardy, he played for about an hour against Roma after returning to action recently. While Rodgers did say that the striker will be carefully assessed before deciding on his selection, it is still expected that the latter can make it into the matchday squad.

Antonio Conte and his side must not drop points for yet another match if they have plans to qualify for the Champions League next season. While it is good that we have improved to this point, we must always look forward, especially when a top-four finish in the league is in our grasp.

Rodgers’ side would undoubtedly pose a major issue for us as they seem to have finally overcome their injury plight. Despite that, we must still get all three points against them to keep the pressure on Arsenal, who are currently in fourth place.

More Tottenham Hotspur News

We trail the Gunners by two points, having played the same number of matches, but our future still is in our own hands. After all, the North London derby is yet to be played and winning that crucial fixture could turn things in our favour if we can be the victors against Leicester tomorrow.

Let’s hope that the team will not let us down once again, and they will show a strong reaction for Sunday’s league fixture.
