Leicester City defender Jonny Evans will miss Tuesday's Premier League trip to Chelsea due to foot injury, manager Brendan Rodgers has said.

Evans was forced off in the first half of Leicester's 1-0 victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday, and Rodgers is hoping to have the experienced centre half back for the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday.

"Jonny won't play in the (Chelsea) game, he'll struggle for that," Rodgers said on Monday. "We'll see what he's like for next weekend, but he won't be involved tomorrow."

Evans has made 28 league appearances for third-placed Leicester this season. Rodgers' team is two points ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea heading into Tuesday's game and end its season with a home game against Tottenham Hotspur.
