Rodgers insists: Ndidi, Iheanacho, others can handle heavy schedule

Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers, believes his ever-improved team could handle their heavy schedule.

The Foxes make the short trip to Aston Villa on Sunday in the middle of a busy spell with the Europa League back underway and plenty to fight for in the Premier League and FA Cup.

Rodgers told the official club website: “I think it’s that balance between having consistency in the team but you know, especially how we play with energy and tempo, you need players to be as fresh as they possibly can be.

“It’s a balance. Obviously, there’s a lot of games and we want to keep this consistency and keep winning, so it is a challenge, especially when you have players injured.

“But the beauty of this group of players that we have here is they don’t moan or groan. We just get on with it.

“If someone’s out, it’s unfortunate, but the next guy comes in and performs to a high level. That’s our plan for this next period, getting through the games, each game at a time and we’ll do everything to get the result.”
