Brendan Rodgers confirms the seven players that will miss their clash with Brighton

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has stressed he is not “dwelling on the negativity” of their injury situation as he confirmed the number of players who are unavailable remains at seven as they prepare to face Brighton tomorrow night.

As was the case for the 1-1 draw at Burnley on Wednesday, the Foxes have Harvey Barnes, James Maddison, Ayoze Perez, Dennis Praet, Jonny Evans, James Justin, and Wes Morgan sidelined.

Rodgers confirmed that none of those seven players will be available for their trip to the Amex, while an update regarding Maddison’s hip problem was that the club were “hopeful that over these next few weeks that will get better”.

Regarding the injury scenario more generally, Rodgers said: “We’ve just been talking about dealing with the situation.

“It’s unfortunate, the situation we’re in. But we keep looking to deal with that, put out a team and a way that can allow us to get a result.

"We are certainly not dwelling on the negativity around it. I’m not one to go on about that.

“Of course we would love (to have) all these players and to have the squad fully fit, that would be great.

“But it’s not the case, so I can’t do anything more than what we are doing at the moment.

"The players are very strong in their spirit and we will fight in every single game to get the result.”
