Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers believes winger Marc Albrighton could play again this season.
It was anticipated that the 29-year-old would miss the rest of the campaign after straining his hamstring during the team's preparations for the clash with Manchester United last month. However
He would be welcome return for the Foxes, as the former Aston Villa man had become an influential figure at the King Power Stadium since arriving in 2014. Albrighton had been impressive this year before sustaining the damage, netting two goals and notching three assists in the Premier League
Despite the initial diagnosis looking decidedly negative for the England Under-21 international, Rodgers has now declared he is optimistic that Albrighton will return before Leicester's final league game at home to Chelsea on May 12.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, the ex-Liverpool boss said: "
The Foxes' game against Bournemouth on Saturday comes too soon for Albrighton, with six more fixtures to come for the 2016 champions before their campaign finishes.
