THE TEAM NEWS

LEICESTER

  • Leicester blew a great chance of winning silverware as they were knocked out of the League Cup after conceding late on against Aston Villa.
  • Brendan Rodgers continues to tinker with Leicester's shape and he could opt to make several changes once again for this contest.
  • Jamie Vardy made his return from the bench in the League Cup but doubts remain whether he will be fit enough to start just yet.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Iheanacho

Unavailable: James (Injured), Amartey (Injured), Mendy (Injured)

Doubtful:

CHELSEA

  • Chelsea were able to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a narrow victory over Hull City but failed to impress again.
  • After back-to-back games without a win in the Premier League, Chelsea now face a tough contest on the road at Leicester.
  • Tammy Abraham could be asked to play through the pain despite suffering an ankle knock in his side's last league game against Arsenal.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Hudson-Odoi, Batshuayi, Willian

Unavailable: Van Ginkel (Injured), Loftus-Cheek (Injured), Pulisic (Injured)

Doubtful: James (Injured), Abraham (Injured), Giroud (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Leicester come into this clash with Chelsea on the back of their disappointing exit at the semi-final stage of the League Cup. The Foxes have been stuttering of late but having notched the first goal in their last five league games, they should be able to open the scoring once again in this contest.
