Brendan Rodgers is leading a sort of revolution at Leicester as the team is exceeding all expectations this season in the Premier League.

The main reason behind Rodgers’ success at Leicester is Jamie Vardy.

The striker is playing in the form of his life this season.

However, a hectic schedule could leave a trace even on him.

Thus, Rodgers is prepared to rest his superstar striker.

“The players aren’t robots, it’s not a computer game,” Rodgers said, according to BBC.

“You cannot risk the fitness of a player.

“You play on the 26th, a high-intensity game against Liverpool, fighting for the result. In football, it’s the second day where the players suffer.

“You get that first day of recovery but it’s the second day where it’s really tough for a player.”

The Foxes will play three matches between December 26 and the New Year’s Day.

These three matches against Liverpool, West Ham, and Newcastle should tell us more about Leicester’s ambitions this season.
