Leicester may be without Jonny Evans for that match after the Northern Irishman pulled a muscle during the warm-up on Thursday.

He had to be replaced by Daniel Amartey in a last minute change for the Foxes.

Rodgers' side never looked in trouble at any stage, though, and will go into their match against Napoli in two weeks' time full of confidence after this latest win.
