Chelsea vs Leicester City

Claude Puel's Leicester City travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon to do battle with reigning Premier League champions Chelsea.

"Iheanacho is a young player, he signed this season with us and we have to develop him and I hope he can have more game time in the second part of the season".

It's another one of those weekends in the Prem where you could pretty much make a case for home win, away win or draw for any of the 3pm games, apart from, perhaps, Leicester winning at Chelsea.

Leicester City might be losing Mahrez and if that happens, it could be a problem. The champions have won all seven of their last Premier League matches there, most notably their 5-0 destruction of Stoke on the last match of 2017.

The England global missed Saturday's FA Cup draw at former club Fleetwood but will travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday. They play at home.

Wes Morgan and Danny Simpson (hamstring) and Robert Huth (ankle) are out but Christian Fuchs and Vicente Iborra are fit for Claude Puel's side at Stamford Bridge.

A man out of form. As a matter of fact, Chelsea have only conceded four goals within their last ten home games in all competitions, including none in their last three so Leicester will have to find a route past that tough rear-guard if they are to attain any sort of result. The Foxes beat Chelsea 2-1 at the King Power Stadium in December 2015 which proved to be Jose Mourinho's last game in charge of the Blues. West Brom, who have gone 20 league matches without a win, have only scored 16 goals all season and they come up against a Brighton side that has failed to score in eight of their 11 away games.

"Before I watched the Carabao Cup semi-final with Arsenal I would have said Chelsea would win this 3-0, but I'm not so sure now", Merson told Sky Sports. A win over a poor Swansea side would be an almighty boost and even though the Swans have shown signs of improvement under Carlos Carvalhal, the Welsh outfit have only scored 13 goals in this campaign and they lost 1-0 to Newcastle at the Liberty Stadium in September. It will be a good challenge for us to try and play for a result.
