Leicester v Chelsea: Premier League preview

Champions Chelsea head to the King Power on Saturday, looking to make it three wins on the spin.

The Blues seem to be over their shock 3-2 defeat to Burnley in their opening match of the season.

Club-record signing Alvaro Morata has gelled into the team well. Two goals and two assists have earned him a nomination for the Premier League Player of the Month award for August.

Leicester head into the game in mixed form. Last time out, Craig Shakespeare’s side lost 2-0 at league leaders Manchester United, following their 4-1 win over Sheffield United in the Carabao Cup, and a 2-0 win at home to Brighton.

Robert Huth could make his first appearance of the season, against his former side. The German has been nursing a foot injury and will face a late fitness test. In any case, Harry Maguire is favourite to start alongside Wes Morgan.

Summer signing Vicente Iborra could also return following a groin problem.

The Foxes brought in Bayer Leverkusen defender Aleksandar Dragovic on loan on deadline day. The Austrian may well feature on Saturday.

Chelsea team news v Leicester: Hazard’s return

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is in line to make his first Premier League appearance of the season. Hazard returned from injury with a goal and an assist in Belgium’s 9-0 win over Gibraltar over the international break.

Just as N’Golo Kante did the season before, midfielder Danny Drinkwater has moved from Leicester to Chelsea. The 27-year-old made the switch on deadline day and is in contention to make his debut against his former employers.

Gary Cahill will serve the final game of his suspension for a straight red picked up the defeat to Burnley.

Wantaway striker Diego Costa is reportedly back in London, although doubts remain as to whether or not he’ll ever play for the Blues again.
