Leicester City defender Jonny Evans will undergo a late fitness test before facing Manchester United at home on Tuesday, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Evans injured his heel during a warm-up session prior to Newcastle United’s 4-2 loss last week.

“He was in a lot of pain and woke up feeling better,” Rodgers said on Monday.

“Jonny is a real warrior so you know if he’s not able to at least give it a go, then he’s really suffering.

“We’ll just have to see how he is and what his availability is going forward.”

Despite returning from a hip injury in their last game, Rodgers said midfielder James Maddison was not yet fully fit.

“He’s not up to game speed,” Rodgers added. “He’ll have a big part to play for us. We need to ensure we have a player who will give us that fight within the game. We’ll assess that going into Tuesday.”
