Rodgers to make changes in Leicester squad for Carabao Cup clash

Tue 26 October 2021 | 13:46

The Leicester manager emphasized that he plans to make changes in his squad for the clash against Brighton in the Carabao Cup.

Leicester

had a successful but exhausting week with victories over

Manchester United

and

Brentford

and vanquishing Spartak Moscow 4-3 in the Europa League.

Wednesday’s clash determines a place in the quarter-finals and Brendan Rodgers insisted that he wants to pick a team that is able to overcome the Seagulls.

 “

Will there be fresh faces? No doubt,

” said the Northern Irishman.

“We can’t use the same players all the time, so we’ll definitely make changes, but it doesn’t take away the fact we want to win the game. We’ll be bringing good players into the game.

“We’ll recover, do some preparation work, and then look to get to the quarter-finals.”

Jamie Vardy sustained a knee problem when he climbed off the bench at half-time in the clash against Brentford, and he will miss Wednesday’s clash.

The ex-England striker was Patson Daka’s replacement, who is trying to get another start.

Jamie Vardy is one of the players set to be rested having come off at half-time at Brentford with a knee problem.

He felt something in the warm-up. When he came in he felt something in his knee but he felt OK to give it a go,”

added Rodgers.

“I could just see he wasn’t quite moving the same. He wasn’t quite as dynamic and didn’t have that speed that he normally has, so there was no point risking it any further.

“We made the change and brought in Patson, who was fresh and confident after his midweek performance.”
