Chelsea vs. Leicester City: Premier League – Match Preview

Both Chelsea and Leicester City will be looking to record their first Premier League wins of the season when they meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Frank Lampard’s reign as Chelsea manager hasn’t got off to the best of starts and they were thrashed 4-0 away to Manchester United last weekend.

Chelsea were also beaten in the Super Cup on Wednesday, going down on penalties to Liverpool, after the match finished 2-2 after 120 minutes.

Leicester City were held to a goalless draw at home by Wolves in their season opener.

Jamie Vardy missed the Foxes best chance, but they were perhaps lucky to claim a point after Leander Dendoncker’s goal was disallowed by VAR.

Match history
Leicester City took four points off Chelsea last season, which included a surprise victory at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have won just one of their last four home league meetings with Leicester City, a 3-0 victory back in 2016.

Team news
Antonio Rudiger could be rushed back if Andres Christensen fails to overcome the knock that forced him off in the Super Cup.

N’Golo Kante is expected to continue having proven his fitness on Wednesday, whilst Olivier Giroud will continue ahead of Tammy Abraham.

Nampalys Mendy is the only injury concern for Leicester ahead of Sunday’s trip to Chelsea.

Despite a disappointing performance, Brendan Rodgers could name the same XI that drew with Wolves.

Expected starting XI’s
Chelsea (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Mount; Pedro, Giroud, Pulisic
Leicester City (4-3-3): Schmeichel; Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Chilwell; Ndidi, Choudhury, Tielemans; Perez, Vardy, Maddison
