“Jamie will be available for the game. It was just a matter of getting the surgery set up at the right time,” Rodgers told reporters.

“We had a good idea of ​​the recovery time, but of course Jamie is very fit and has recovered very well.

Vardy was the club’s top scorer that season with 13 goals in all competitions. However, he missed the last three league games because of the operation.

“He’s so important to us, but the nice thing about it is that we don’t have to throw him back. Just having him available, whether he’s starting or coming off the bench, is a huge boost for us.”

Wilfred Ndidi is a doubt for Sunday’s game while Wes Morgan, Dennis Praet, Wesley Fofana and Timothy Castagne have all been ruled out.

Leicester is third in the league with 42 points, five behind leaders Manchester City, who played less.
