Confirmed Teams: Leicester City vs Chelsea | Premier League
Chelsea face Leicester City in the Premier League League and the confirmed team news is in from the King Power Stadium.
Graham Potter’s Chelsea side head to the Midlands in search of their third win in a row in all competitions. It’s been a stellar week for the Blues after back-to-back wins over Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund to ease the pressure.

“Two wins make it easier, but you don’t get anything at Leicester for what we did a couple of days ago,” said the 47-year-old ahead of the league encounter. “We have to start again, we have to build on the momentum, build on the positive feelings that we had in and after the game. It’s going to be a tough game there.
“Leicester are fighting for the points, they’ll want to win as well, but the boys are looking forward to it, they are in a good place.
“As I said, I’ve always had the support of the players; they’ve always been there, they’ve always tried, they’ve always given their best, but unfortunately results haven’t been what we want.
“Pressure can make things more challenging, but we need to keep moving forward.”
