CFCnet reckon the predicted Chelsea line up vs Leicester City will resemble that of the team that won at Brighton and at home against Manchester City, as Maurizio Sarri looks to continue to feel good factor heading into this busy period of games.
Eden Hazard who wasn’t expected to get on the pitch due to a lingering foot injury against Bournemouth midweek, was called upon to rescue the game – that’s exactly what the Belgian did with a second-half goal that sealed the 1-0 win. Eden Hazard is all but certain to return to the ‘false nine’ position in attack on Saturday.
Let’s look who’s definitely out – Alvaro Morata will surely miss the game with the injury sustained last week in the Europa League, while centre-backs Gary Cahill and Andreas Christensen are also out – the Dane picked up an injury in the Carabao Cup midweek victory.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek will still be pushing for a starting spot and fans would certainly like to see it, with the jury still not completely settled on Mateo Kovacic – however the Croat is likely to get the nod over the English international.
How Chelsea Could Line Up Against Leicester
