Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says the Foxes have no new injury concerns ahead of the big game against Arsenal this weekend.

Leicester is the visitor this Saturday at the Emirates where they take on Mikel Arteta and his confident Arsenal side in the Premier League.

Both clubs will go head-to-head in the second game of the day in game week two with the Super Eagles duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho expected to be in the Leicester squad.

Ndidi featured in the season opener against Brentford last time, it was his first game for the club in the league since the last one on March 13, also against the Gunners. His compatriot, Iheanacho, was only an unused substitute last weekend.

With Arsenal in sight next for the club after a 2-2 draw at home the last time, Leicester's manager says he will have an injury-free squad to select from when they take on Arsenal.

Rodgers spoke to the media on Thursday as monitored by Pulse Sports Nigeria.

"There's nothing new," Rodgers told the media via Leicester's official website. "Everyone (expected to be available) is okay to be in the squad."

On the game against the home side, Arsenal, the former Liverpool boss added;

“For me, Arsenal have gone to a new level with the three boys who have come in. They have really given the squad the confidence and given Mikel [Arteta] the tools to play how he wants to play. They had a good pre-season and started well against Crystal Palace.”
