Match Preview : Chelsea vs Leicester

Leicester are one of only three teams yet to win a single point away from home this season. The Foxes have conceded the most goals away from home in the Premier League this season after shipping four goals in successive away matches before the international break.

Chelsea stopped a run of three straight league matches without a win to beat Hull before the international break, which coincided with Antonio Conte using a three-man defence for the first time.

The home side are unbeaten in their last six matches against Leicester at Stamford Bridge, which doesn’t bode well for a Leicester side that are struggling on their travels this season.

Team News

Chelsea : Antonio Conte is expected to have John Terry back after the Chelsea captain missed their last four matches because of an ankle injury.

Should Terry be available to start, it remains to be seen whether Conte will persist with the three-man defence he used before the international break.

Willian will not feature this weekend after the sad loss of his mother. Victor Moses could be pushed further forward in his place. Pedro is another option in attack.

John Obi Mikel featured for Nigeria during the international break and will be available for selection this weekend.

Leicester : Shinji Okazaki says he has overcome the ankle injury he suffered during the international break. Claudio Ranieri has hinted he will rotate his squad ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge with one eye on their Champions League match against Copenhagen next week.

The likes of Demarai Gray, Andy King and Okazaki could profit as a result.
