Brendan Rodgers has been handed a major injury boost as he prepares to take his Leicester side to former club Liverpool this weekend. Anfield brings back fond memories for the Northern Irishman, after he came so close to guiding the Reds to their first-ever Premier League title in 2013/14.
Now Rodgers finds himself involved in talk surrounding this year’s title race, after Leicester’s fine start to the campaign.
The Foxes have collected 18 points from a possible 24 and have already beaten Manchester City and Arsenal on their way to the summit.
However, Leicester face their toughest test yet against the defending champions, who are trying to navigate an injury crisis.
Liverpool remain unbeaten in the Premier League at Anfield since April 2017, when Christian Benteke scored twice for Crystal Palace in a 2-1 win for the Eagles.

The young centre-back has made the transition from Ligue 1 to the Premier League look easy following his £36.5million move from St-Etienne this summer.
