Chelsea v Leicester City

Adjust Comment Print

The Premier League is back this weekend which would usually fill me with delight after an average weekend of FA Cup betting - but then I took a look at the fixtures.

The Foxes travel to Stamford Bridge on the back of only one win in seven.

"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". 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.

Chelsea have no fresh injury concerns and a full squad to choose from, with the exception being new signing Ross Barkley, who is now ruled out due to a lack of fitness, so won't be making his Blues debut just yet.

Leicester are in mixed form at present and they probably won't relish the trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon where they have a very poor recent record.

Samad said his movement was ready to give concessions in any political talks in order to stop the bloodshed. UAE is a major partner of the military coalition fighting the Houthis.

Since losing to Man City in September, Chelsea have won each of their last seven home Premier League games, shipping just three goals and keeping five clean sheets in that time. Their last win away from home in Premier League action came in mid-December with the 4-1 hammering of Southampton at St Mary's. It will be a good challenge for us to try and play for a result.

If Slimani leaves, Leonardo Ulloa will stay at the King Power Stadium.

The Blues have won the last three Premier League meetings between these two.

Talking ahead of the game, Puel said: "We know Chelsea are the champions". Christian Fuchs, who was struggling with illness is also set to join back up with the Foxes. Don't forget, there is also £10,000 up for grabs in The Sportsman's ideal 10 game - it's free to play and all you need to do is successfully predict the outcomes of ten selected matches. However defensive trio Robert Huth, Wes Morgan and Danny Simpson are all missing through respective problems.
