Leicester manager Rodgers content rotating Vardy and Daka

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is happy to continue rotating Patson Daka and Jamie Vardy.

Daka started up front instead of Vardy for Sunday's 4-0 victory over Newcastle.

Given Vardy will turn 35 next month, Rodgers wants to preserve his energy.

He told reporters: "We have an unbelievable striker in Jamie Vardy but he is human so we have to look after him.

"Patson Daka is very important for us. He is a great goalscorer and he showed that."
