Brendan Rodgers provides Leicester squad fitness update before Man United

Man United vs Leicester

Leicester City have had a very solid start to the 2019/20 campaign.

After four Premier League games, the Foxes sit third in the table and are one of just three PL sides yet to lose a league outing this season.

Leicester must now travel to Manchester United this coming Saturday.

The Red Devils had a great opening game of 2019/20, smashing Chelsea 4-0.

Since then though, United have failed to win any of their proceeding three league games.

Leicester fitness update

Ahead of the Man United game, Brendan Rodgers has provided a fitness update on his squad.

It largely sounds good for Leicester with Rodgers stating everyone has come back fit and well from the latest international break:

“They’ve all come back, all fine, and all fit and well.

“The training squad is super competitive and everyone is fighting, not just to play, but also to be in the matchday squad.

“The nature of this squad is that they are very keen to improve and get better. It’s a long season and we’re really looking forward to this game against a top-class team.”

Rodgers went on to state that apart from Matty James, everyone is involved and working for Leicester. Rodgers also mentioned that James recently had an operation:

“He had an operation a few weeks ago so that’s the reason he wasn’t in the squad for this period of the season, but apart from that, everyone is involved and working.” As quoted by Leicester’s official website.
