Leicester City vs Chelsea Match Preview
Leicester have not been able to perform on its standards this season, hence they are at the bottom position in the table. Taking current situation in consideration, it will be an victory for Chelsea because the Blues are well-balanced whereas the Foxes on the other hand are quite vulnerable in defence. Although, there is a quite a possibility that the fixture might take a twist because the Foxes have been quite impressive on their home ground at the King Power Stadium. Leicester have scored at least two goals in six of their previous nine home matches in the Premier League which is quite impressive.
Another fact about the fixture is that Leicester has quite impressive recent game record against Chelsea and they are on a four-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League. Chelsea have been unable to beat the Foxes in the top flight since recording a 2-1 victory at the King Power Stadium in September 2017.
Leicester City vs Chelsea Team News
Youri Tielemans of Leicester is a doubt for the match against Chelsea. The midfielder is struggling with a calf problem and will miss Saturday’s clash. Other absentees for Leicester are Wesley Fofana, Mark Albrighton and James Justin who are still ruled out.
Thomas Tuchel has quite good team news because the squad will welcome their strikers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner after progressing well in their recovery over the international break. Kai Havertz, Mason Mount and Marcos Alonso will also be back in contention. There is a doubt over Mateo Kovacic who is out with a thigh injury. It would be too soon for him to start the match.
