Brendan Rodgers confirms plans to shake up Leicester XI vs West Ham


Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has this evening revealed that he intends to rotate his side’s starting line-up for their meeting with West Ham.

Liverpool cruise

The Foxes welcomed Liverpool to the King Power stadium last night, for a crunch Premier League clash.

The sides headed into proceedings occupying 1st and 2nd in the English top-flight, with the matchup having been widely-viewed as must-win for Leicester, if the hosts maintained any hope of hunting down Jurgen Klopp’s table-toppers.

When all was said and done, however, Liverpool made their utter dominance of this season’s Premier League clear once more.

The Reds romped to a 4-0 victory, courtesy of goals from Roberto Firmino (2), James Milner and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Highlights: Leicester 0-4 Liverpool

‘Need to make those changes’

As such, on the back of respective defeats to Manchester City and Liverpool, Leicester will find themselves ousted from the Premier League’s top-2 if the former manage even a draw at Wolves tonight.

The Foxes have begun to look fatigued of late, with their lack of squad depth compared to the English top-flight’s other top sides having become evident over recent weeks.

And this looks set to see Brendan Rodgers opt to rotate his squad for Leicester’s next outing.

Speaking in a press conference a short time ago, the Northern Irishman was drawn on whether he intends to shake things up for the club’s meeting with West Ham tomorrow evening, to which Rodgers responded:

‘Yes, just purely for the welfare of the players.’

‘It’s when you see we put so much into tonight physically and we have a massive January coming up for us as a squad and as a team.’

‘My fear is that we would be risking too many guys getting injured if we’re playing at 5:30pm on Saturday.’

‘Normally, in a day where your body is recovering, I’m going to need to make those changes.’
