​Rodgers confirms Leicester striker Vardy chance to face Chelsea

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers believes that Jamie Vardy will be fit for Chelsea's upcoming visit.

The Foxes are battling against another top four hopeful at the weekend in the Premier League.

While Vardy is nearly certain to be fit for the weekend, he could even feature on Tuesday in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi final against Aston Villa.

He suffered a hamstring issue against West Ham United last midweek, which turned out to be a minor glute problem.

"He's in the squad," Rodgers said at his press conference this week.

"He's worked very hard since his injury last midweek.

"He's in the squad and then we'll give it another full day, see how he is tomorrow, and see whether he starts or comes off the bench.

"But he'll certainly have a part to play."
