Leicester vs Chelsea promises plenty as the Foxes hope to jumpstart their season by halting Chelsea’s title charge on Saturday (start time 7:30am ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) at the King Power Stadium.
The Foxes saw a two-match win streak turn to a two-match winless run before the break, and beating the table-topping Blues would send a serious message to the PL.
Chelsea’s coming off a draw but still leads second-place Man City and third-place West Ham by three points. The Blues’ 26 points are impressive, and so are the paltry four goals they’ve conceded en route to the PL’s best goal differential through 11 matches.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Leicester vs Chelsea.

Christian Pulisic wasn’t fit to start either of the USMNT’s World Cup qualifiers and he is on the bench for Chelsea.

Anything can happen coming out of an international break, but Thomas Tuchel’s men are well-equipped to deal with the challenge of a trip to Brendan Rodgers and Co. Let’s hope for a Christian Pulisic start, but either way we expect something like Leicester 1-3 Chelsea.
