He has been called upon in recent weeks because of injuries to the duo of James Maddison and Harvey Barnes and he is making the most of his chances.
“He has a bit of everything,” Rodgers was quoted by Leicestermercury.co.uk.

“He’s come up trumps in a lot of the games recently, if you think back to Fulham, he scored that important header. His contribution was outstanding.

“In the first half it got away from him too much, he had too many touches and was losing possession, but when he intensified his game, he played quicker and his finish was superb. That’s the level of confidence he’s at.

“He worked hard for the team and his contribution was valuable.”
