Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has expressed his displeasure on the trio of James Maddison, Ayoze Perez and Hamza Choudhury after they breached the COVID-19 rules.
The trio was not present when the Foxes went 3-2 down to West Ham on Sunday after it was reported that they attended a house party in the week.
"It was a decision I made, we had an internal situation last weekend and it is not a standard that we would expect.
"All those boys that you mentioned, they are all good guys, they are all good lads, but we have a standard on and off the pitch that we need to ensure we adhere and that is why the team has been developing well over these last couple of years.
"But the boys will re-join this group after this game, the consequence of this behavior is they will miss this game, but they will join the group next week, and then we will get ready for a semi-final. It is internal and something that is being dealt with from within,” Rodgers said after the game.
