Vardy hurt his glute in the win, temporarily returning to the match after treatment from the trainer but ultimately subbing off before halftime.

“It wasn’t his hamstring, so that’s good news for us,” Rodgers said, via The Leicester Mercury.
“He just felt a twinge in his glute, so we just have to wait and see on that in the next day or so. Thankfully his hamstring is okay and he just felt some pain in his glute, so we will have to assess that over the next few days.”
Vardy has a Premier League-best 17 goals, one more than Man City’s Sergio Aguero.
Iheanacho has six goals and three assists in 485 minutes and there’s reason to believe he can feast off Leicester’s playmaking if Vardy needs a match or two to heal.
Whether he can fill Vardy’s shoes in the long-term is a big question, especially as Leicester aims to return for the Champions League.Follow @NicholasMendola
