Chelsea host Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday as the last two champions of the Premier League collide.


Antonio Conte‘s Chelsea have had defensive issues in recent weeks which has led to defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal, while Leicester has lost all three of their games away from home so far this season (Hull, Liverpool, Manchester United).

Chelsea’s main aim this season is to get in the Champions League while Leicester’s priority appears to be staying in the UCL as long as they can rather over back-to-back PL titles. These sides met last month in the EFL Cup at Leicester win Chelsea winning 4-2 after extra time, but both teams were much changed.

In team news Chelsea have John Terry on the bench, with Conte continuing in a 3-4-3 formation.

Leicester leave Riyad Mahrez, Danny Simpson and Islam Slimani on the bench ahead of their UCL game in midweek.
