Brendan Rodgers believes Jamie Vardy could be back in time for Leicester's winner-takes-all Carabao Cup semi-final against Aston Villa on Tuesday.

Vardy damaged a glute during the 4-1 win over West Ham on Wednesday and will not feature in Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round tie at Brentford - though he would not have played even if fit with Leicester certain to rotate.

Yet Rodgers refused to rule out Vardy being involved at Villa Park, with the winner guaranteed to advance to Wembley after a 1-1 draw in the first leg.
