THE TEAM NEWS
Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Emerson; Jorginho, Kovacic, Kante; Pedro, Abraham, Pulisic
Unavailable: Van Ginkel (Injured), Hudson-Odoi (Injured), Loftus-Cheek (Injured)
Doubtful: Christensen (Injured), James (Injured), Rudiger (Injured), Willian (Injured)
- Chelsea put in a strong performance despite losing on penalties in the UEFA Super Cup midweek and Lampard will take plenty of positives.
- They will assess the fitness of their players after the 120 minutes in Istanbul and Lampard may contemplate one or two rotations here.
- Christensen picked up a slight knock so Tomori or potentially even Rudiger if deemed fit enough could come into the defence for him.
Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Chilwell; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Choudhury, Tielemans, Maddison; Vardy
Doubtful: Mendy (Injured)
- Leicester could only manage a goalless draw at home to Wolves in their opening game which they will look to build on at Stamford Bridge.
- Soyuncu was given the nod alongside Evans as Maguire's replacement and he should keep his place after helping the side keep a clean sheet.
- Brendan Rodgers has plenty of options in terms of selection but he may be tempted to start with the same eleven to build continuity.
Despite losing on penalties, Chelsea' performance in the UEFA Super Cup will lift their confidence after the mauling last week. They face another tough test here against a motivated Leicester team, and they will not have it all their own way here neither. Expect both teams to score in this one.
