Leicester boss Rodgers provides Vestergaard and Pereira updates ahead of Man City

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers provided an update on his team’s fitness on Thursday afternoon.

Citizens wait

Of course, the Foxes are off to a solid start to the new season.

Putting aside a 4-1 beating out of character at the hands of West Ham, Rodgers’ men have recited a trio of victories in 2021/22.

The biggest highlight came in the form of a Community Shield loss to champion Manchester City, while more Premier League three-point shots against Wolves and Norwich loomed on either side of the London Stadium debacle.

The next step for Leicester, meanwhile, is another showdown with Man City.

The King Power team will host Pep Guardiola’s men on Saturday afternoon, in the first outing of the respective clubs at the back of the international break.

Ricardo last

As such, with the Sky Blues no doubt seeking a point of revenge for their loss at Community Shield last month, Brendan Rodgers will be eager to have as many of their key artists in shape and available as possible this weekend.

And, on Thursday, the Leicester boss confirmed a trio of raises at the staff front.

In a pre-match press conference, Rodgers first revealed that Ricardo Pereira, who was forced to leave Norwich last time, has now returned to training:

And there was also encouraging news on the well-being of Jonny Evans and Jannik Vestergaard, with the blocks sidelined in contention to mark their comeback against City on Saturday:
