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.”

Rodgers hails ‘phenomenal’ Iheanacho as Leicester close in on top four

After 35 games, Leicester is in fourth position with 63 points, seven points behind second-placed United, who have played one game less.
