Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers provides updates on Jamie Vardy & Jonny Evans

Leicester dominate Man City

Sunday’s marquee Premier League clash pitted Manchester City against Leicester.

The Foxes, on the back of a rather dismal end to the 2019/20 season, have started the current campaign pretty well.

Leicester headed into their meeting with City on the back of two straight victories in the league.

The first 45 at the Etihad, though, suggested that their unbeaten start would be drawing to a close in the very near future.

A Jamie Vardy penalty 37 minutes in did see Leicester pull one back to head in level at the break.

But, for the most part, Pep Guardiola’s men had completely dominated the first-half.

Following the interval, however, Leicester went on to run riot, with Jamie Vardy causing the Citizens’ shaky backline all sorts of problems.

And, when all was said and done on Sunday, Brendan Rodgers’ men came away with a staggering 5-2 victory.

Highlights: Manchester City 2-Leicester 5

Rodgers on Vardy & Evans

On an otherwise positive evening, though, Leicester did appear to be dealt a couple of blows on the injury front.

Jonny Evans, who has just returned from serving a three-match ban, was withdrawn 10 minutes from time, and appeared to be in some pain.

Jamie Vardy was then taken off with five minutes to go, after clutching at his groin.

As such, Brendan Rodgers has since provided updates on the duo, and, thankfully for the Leicester faithful, neither injury sounds too serious:

“I think he’s got an ongoing issue with his hip, Jamie, so I think he’ll be fine with a few days’ rest, and he’ll be okay. Jonny felt his calf, tight, just a little bit. So, hopefully that will be okay.”
