Chelsea injury latest ahead of Leicester as two players out & Werner not starting

Chelsea injury latest ahead of Leicester as two players out & Werner not starting

Leicester vs Chelsea

Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off will see Leicester City and Chelsea face off at the King Power Stadium.

It is Chelsea who head into the weekend’s action in the better form of the sides. The Blues are currently top of the Premier League table, having secured 26 points from their opening 11 league games of the campaign.

Thomas Tuchel’s men are also the top scorers in the division at present, whilst being in possession of the best defensive record – shipping just four goals in 11, too.

Leicester, on the other hand, have had a fairly rocky start to the campaign.

The Foxes begin the gameweek’s action down in 12th in the English top-flight, having won just two of their last five outings.

Brendan Rodgers and co. will, though, no doubt take solace in the fact that they downed Chelsea earlier this year to lift the FA Cup.

Thomas Tuchel provides Chelsea injury update ahead of Leicester

Ahead of tomorrow’s game, Thomas Tuchel would speak to the press on Friday afternoon.

The German discussed a number of topics in his press conference, including team news.

Both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner have been out of action for several weeks through injury. And, this morning, Tuchel confirmed that the former remains sidelined for the Leicester game, as does Mateo Kovacic.

As for Werner, he will not start on Saturday, whilst Thiago Silva has been affected by travel:

“Mateo and Romelu are still out for the game in Leicester. Romelu is very close so hopefully he will join the squad on Sunday. He is pushing hard.”
