Brendan Rodgers has appointed six of his senior first team to marshal his Leicester City squad in the dressing room, these are the players.

With Leicester City beginning the restarted 2019/20 campaign rather sluggishly, especially during the early part of the Watford draw, Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers will be determined for his squad’s most outstanding players and to influence players around them before and after all matches. All of which are now crucial to the ambition of qualifying for Champions League football.

Leicester entertain Brighton & Hove Albion at home in the Premier League, on Tuesday. Seagulls manager Graham Potter will fancy his team’s chances following a 2-1 dismissal of big six strugglers Arsenal on Saturday. Yet the East Midlanders will be favourites with the majority of experts, pundits and supporters for the upcoming clash.

Rodgers, using wisdom apparently attained from watching Jose Mourinho while at Chelsea, has appointed six of his senior roster to supervise the remainder of the squad in in training and prior to and during games.

In addition, the boss gave these chosen athletes the authority to administer his instructions and ethos to the other men. A seemingly seems a wise in-house tactic from the Northern Irishman: ensuring some of his best performers and stringent characters translate the message. It may be assessed as a masterstroke in time.

The faction named as Rodgers‘ “six-man leadership group” consists of Wes Morgan – naturally, as club captain, Jamie Vardy along with Kasper Schmeichel – a pair who go without saying, almost. Defensive leader Jonny Evans is the fourth; youthful duo Ben Chilwell as well as Youri Tielemans completes the list.
