Preview: Leicester City vs. Chelsea – prediction, team news, lineups

Despite suffering a minor setback against Burnley in their last premier league encounter, Chelsea will aim to maintain or increase their three-point lead at the top of the Premier League table when they travel to Leicester City for Saturday’s early kickoff. infoguidenigeria

The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley last time out, while Brendan Rodgers’s side also took a point from their meeting with Leeds United.


Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers says midfielder Youri Tielemans will be out “for a few weeks” with the calf injury he sustained against Leeds.

Marc Albrighton is fit again but James Justin isn’t yet ready to return.    

On the other hand, Chelsea forwards Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are back in training, with head coach Thomas Tuchel expected to give an update on their fitness during Friday’s press conference.

Mason Mount may be available following dental surgery.



  • Chelsea’s 2-1 home victory against Leicester in May ended their six-match Premier League winless run in this fixture (D4, L2).
  • Leicester have won just two of their past eight league fixtures (D3, L3).

Chelsea are still top of the table but they hit a little bump before the international break when they were held at home by Burnley.

They might drop more points here too. Every team has had players away on international duty but this is a tricky trip for the Blues, even if they had been able to prepare for it properly.

Jamie Vardy will be lying in wait and Leicester are going to spark into life sooner or later – they have got too many good players not to find some form eventually. Prediction: 1-2

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Castagne; Ndidi, Soumare; Lookman, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Hudson-Odoi, Mount; Havertz
