Brendan Rodgers rules out January departures/Leicester squad fitness update

Leicester squad fitness update

Leicester are set to play host to Norwich City on Saturday afternoon.

The Foxes go into the clash with Norwich in a fine vein of form.

Brendan Rodgers has managed to guide Leicester to victories in their last nine matches across all competitions.

Leicester last failed to win a tie back in early October, when they were handed a 2-1 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield.

It is Liverpool who are currently top of the Premier League, with Leicester their closest challengers.

The Foxes are eight points adrift of Jurgen Klopp’s side, and given the form Liverpool have been in of late, cannot afford to drop any points vs Norwich if they wish to mount a proper title challenge.

Leicester losing or drawing on Saturday does seem rather unlikely, though.

Relegation-battling Norwich are currently 19th in the PL, with just 11 points amassed from their 16 league ties this term.

Ahead of the Norwich tie, Brendan Rodgers gave a fitness update on his squad, in which he stated that everyone is fine:

“We had a few boys inside but they’re all fit and fine for Saturday. Everyone’s fine.” As quoted by Leicester’s official website.

Leicester won’t be selling in January

Rodgers has also recently spoken about the January transfer window.

With Leicester flying high in the league, it shouldn’t be too much of surprise to see some of their stars being linked with moves.

Chelsea have recently been linked with full-back Ben Chilwell.

Leicester centre-back duo Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu have also been linked with Manchester City this season.

However, Rodgers stated that there will be nobody leaving Leicester in January:

“There’ll be no-one leaving in January. Categorically.

“I’m sure if we speak (to the hierarchy), they will have the same message.

“I speak regularly with Jon [Rudkins] and Top [Khun Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha]. It’s very clear we want to keep this squad together. We want to ensure they stay around beyond January.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
