With a wave of first-string players back in the starting lineup after a painful late loss to Newcastle United, Leicester could not shake off the last-minute curse at Goodison Park, where Everton left it until the final few seconds to boost their survival bid in a 1-1 stalemate.

Harvey Barnes had taken all of five minutes to tap home and propel the Foxes into the ascendancy on Wednesday night, but in the second minute of added time in the second half, Richarlison‘s scuffed effort nestled into the corner as Leicester pounded the ground in frustration.

Last-minute goals have now bedevilled Leicester twice in the space of a week, and any hopes of the Foxes returning to Europe via their league position are slim to none, with Rodgers’s ninth-placed side now 11 points adrift of seventh-placed West Ham United, albeit with two games in hand.

A top-seven finish may be a write-off at this point, and Leicester fans ought to care more about their side’s Conference League fortunes heading into the final few weeks of the season, with the first leg of their semi-final with Roma taking place on Thursday night.

For now, though, Leicester will set out to win their fourth Premier League game on the bounce at home, and they have lost just one of their last nine top-flight games at the King Power, which will host one of the biggest European nights in the club’s history five days after the visit of the Lions.

Leicester’s long-term knee victims Ryan Bertran0d and Wilfred Ndidi both remain out of contention, while Boubakary Soumare‘s muscular soreness is proving more difficult to overcome than initially anticipated.

On a brighter note, the Foxes boss has confirmed that Jamie Vardy should be back in the squad and could play some part on Saturday, albeit most likely from the bench.

Rodgers has no new concerns to contend with from the Everton draw but is sure to consider some alterations amid the quick turnaround, with James Justin and Caglar Soyuncu both ready to freshen up the defence.

Marc Albrighton and Ademola Lookman could also be drafted in as Rodgers keeps one eye on the visit of Roma, but Barnes is partial to a goal in this fixture – netting four in his last four versus the Lions.

As for Villa, Lucas Digne‘s late withdrawal in the Spurs defeat added injury to insult for Gerrard, and there are fears that the left-back could be out for the remainder of the season with that collarbone issue.

Gerrard will not be able to welcome Kortney Hause back from an abdominal problem this weekend, while Morgan Sanson and Bertrand Traore have picked up fresh issues and are also out of contention.

Ashley Young will deputise for Digne at left-back, and the likes of Leon Bailey and Emiliano Buendia should be considered for starts amid Villa’s losing streak, with Danny Ings‘s spot at the tip of the attack potentially at risk.

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Justin, Amartey, Soyuncu, Castagne; Tielemans, Mendy; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Daka

Aston Villa possible starting lineup:
Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Young; Ramsey, Luiz, McGinn; Coutinho, Watkins, Bailey
