What next for Brendan Rodgers after FA Cup win?

Leicester City continue their pre-season schedule with another road trip to face QPR.

Brendan Rodgers’ side travel to the Championship side looking to notch their first goal of the summer.

So far they have been held 0-0 by Burton Albion, before losing on penalties, and lost 1-0 to another League One side, Wycombe, in midweek.

Rodgers will be hoping his players can up the ante as they look to put plans in place for another impressive season at the King Power Stadium.

Last year saw the Foxes once again finish fifth but they also secured a memorable FA Cup victory over Chelsea at Wembley.

Team news

Ryan Bertrand is expected to feature, having missed Wednesday night’s defeat to Wycombe with a slight muscle strain.

That includes the likes of Harvey Barnes, Ayoze Perez, Jonny Evans and James Justin.

Youri Tielemans could feature having now returned from the Euros with Belgium.

Dennis Praet, Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Ward, who also featured in the latter stages of the tournament, are unlikely to feature.

Moses Odubajo should play again for QPR, as they prepare to offer him permanent terms, whilst ex-Leicester midfielder George Thomas will be hoping to get the nod.
