'Feels good to be back' - Ndidi delighted at Leicester City return

"It is not his hamstring which is good".

Despite the injury blows, Rodgers' side returned to winning ways with an emphatic victory to maintain their stranglehold on third place in the Premier League, and with it keep one eye on a Champions League place for next season.

Though Vardy - who watched from the bench during the second half - has shown no sign of changing the decision he made after the 2018 World Cup to step back from global duty, England boss Gareth Southgate must be wondering when the run of bad luck will end.

Southgate has been hit by injuries to strikers Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford in recent weeks.

The result also proved City can operate without Vardy.

Vardy has scored 17 goals for Leicester this term, making him a key figure in the team's unexpected surge into the top four.

Another is back in Iraq after being sent to Kuwait for evaluation, and 16 are back on duty in Iraq following their diagnosis. Many were in bunkers before almost a dozen Iranian ballistic missiles exploded, damaging several parts of the base.

But while Vardy will not be involved in the FA Cup fourth-round tie at Brentford on Saturday, Rodgers said there is an outside chance he could feature in Tuesday's League Cup semi-final second leg against Aston Villa.

'Jamie is a fantastic player and very important for us but you're never going to succeed if you just rely totally on one player, ' said Rodgers.

"We'll see how it will be in the next day or two, but luckily it doesn't look too serious".

Barnes was a constant threat for the home side and he opened the scoring in the 24th minute. Then came the injuries that briefly left Leicester scrambling.

Perez made absolutely sure of the points in the 88th minute when he found the corner after an intricate passing move.

But Leicester settled back into their rhythm and could breathe easy when Perez tucked away a penalty in the 81st minute after Angelo Ogbonna's clumsy tackle on Vardy's replacement Kelechi Iheanacho.
