While Rodgers would have been naturally disappointed with his side's 1-1 draw against Norwich City at the weekend, the Leicester boss will put the result into context with regards to the rest of the campaign.
The Foxes remain in second position in the Premier League, four points above third-placed Manchester City, and with the opportunity to move a step closer to winning a trophy during the early months of 2020.
The East Midlands outfit have had to contend with three successive away ties in this competition, a run which began with a penalty-shootout triumph over Newcastle United in August.
With the latter likely to feature on the substitutes' bench on Wednesday night, Iheanacho will see this as an opportunity to stake a claim for a starting role against his former club Man City at the weekend.
Everton and Ferguson will also view this tie as a good chance to progress closer to an appearance at Wembley Stadium, although the Scot has plenty of selection concerns heading into this match.
Despite his second-half introduction against Manchester United on Sunday, the Italian was later substituted by Ferguson, and it remains to be seen whether the youngster has any future at Goodison Park.
Everton have reached the last eight with wins over Lincoln City, Sheffield Wednesday and Watford respectively.

While Rodgers has not got into the habit of making sweeping changes in this competition, the Northern Irishman must take Saturday evening's meeting with City at the Etihad Stadium into consideration.
Many of his senior players could drop down to the substitutes' bench, giving the likes of Danny Ward, James Justin, Wes Morgan, Christian Fuchs, Hamza Choudhury and Demarai Gray rare outings in the first XI.
Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Sidibe, Keane, Mina, Baines; Holgate, Delph; Bernard, Sigurdsson, Richarlison; Tosun
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Ward; Justin, Morgan, Soyuncu, Fuchs; Choudhury, Praet; Gray, Perez, Barnes; Iheanacho
We say: Everton 1-2 Leicester City
While Toffees fans will want to go further in this competition, Leicester may be better equipped to deal with the extra fixture in a hectic schedule. With changes aplenty expected, we feel that the Foxes will grind out a win on Merseyside.
