Rodgers has confirmed that 2019-20 Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy will miss out on Thursday with the calf problem which kept him out of the Villa game, but the 33-year-old should be back to lead the line against Arsenal this weekend.
As a result, Kelechi Iheanacho is all but guaranteed to spearhead the Foxes attack against Zorya, with Islam Slimani, who made his first appearance for Leicester since January 2018 at the weekend, not included in Rodgers’s Europa League squad.
Highly-rated defender Caglar Soyuncu is facing a lengthy spell in the treatment room with an abductor tear, which is expected to rule him out of action until 2021.
Daniel Amartey, Ricardo Pereira and Wilfred Ndidi are all long-term absentees for the hosts.
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Castagne, Morgan, Evans, Justin; Mendy; Albrighton, Tielemans, Maddison, Perez; Iheanacho
Leicester City form (all competitions): WWLWLL
With regards to the visitors, goalkeeper Zauri Makharadze and midfielder Maksym Kasakov are the only injury concerns that Skripnik must contend with for the midweek game.
19-year-old forward Allahyar Sayyadmanesh will look to make his debut for Zorya after arriving on loan from Turkish giants Fenerbahce earlier this month.
Zorya Luhansk possible starting lineup:
Shevchenko; Favorov, Vernydub, Abu Hanna, Leovigildo; Cvek; Kochergin, Nazaryna, Kabaev, Ciganiks; Sayyadmanesh
