Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has, on Thursday, provided fitness updates on two of the players to have made the move to the King Power Stadium this summer.
Rodgers’ men are set to return to action this Saturday afternoon.
The Foxes will make the trip to Carrow Road for a Premier League meeting with newly promoted Norwich City, in search of a bounce-back result.
After opening the campaign in impressive fashion courtesy of successive victories over Chelsea and Wolves, Leicester were dealt their first defeat of the term last time out.
An altogether disappointing display ultimately culminated in the visitors being put to the sword by 4 goals to 1 at West Ham on Monday night.
All at Leicester, though, will no doubt be confident of returning to winning ways in 48 hours’ time.
Norwich have endured something of a nightmare start to life back in the top-flight of English football, conceding 8 (EIGHT) whilst failing to find the net themselves even once.
Bertrand to feature?
And, as outlined above, ahead of his side’s trip to Carrow Road, Brendan Rodgers has today provided a fitness update on his squad.
The takeaway which will no doubt prove most noteworthy when it comes to piquing the attentions of the Foxes faithful, meanwhile, surrounds the latest on Jannik Vestergaard and Ryan Bertrand.
Defenders Vestergaard and Bertrand both made the move to the King Power from Southampton this summer, adding some much-needed depth to Leicester’s backline.
Neither, however, has managed an appearance for the club as of yet.
And, if the latest comments on the part of boss Rodgers are anything to go by, then Vestergaard’s debut in the colours of his new club looks altogether unlikely to come this weekend, either.
Bertrand, though, could yet feature, after recovering from a bout of Covid-19:
Brendan Rodgers confirms a knee injury has ruled Jannik Vestergaard out of the trip to Norwich on Saturday. Ryan Bertrand is available after having COVID-19. He’ll be assessed over the next 24 hours.
