Chelsea endured a couple of difficult weeks following consecutive defeats at the hands of Liverpool and Arsenal but the Blues managed to head into the international break on a positive note following a convincing 2-0 away victory over Hull City.

Now Chelsea will be hopeful of using the three points against Hull as a springboard to a sustained run of good form and one can be sure that manager Antonio Conte will be looking for three points from his side when they welcome Leicester City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Willian and Victor Moses are rated as doubts ahead of the encounter while the likes of John Obi Mikel, John Terry and Kurt Zouma are definitely ruled out due to long term injuries.

Not many expected Leicester City to repeat their fantastic exploits from last season and claim the Premier League title once again this term.

Unsurprisingly, Leicester have not been able to prove themselves as title contenders during the current campaign but a bit surprisingly, their performances in the Premier League have been a bit poorer than expected.

With only 8 points from seven matches, Leicester are struggling at the moment and with a clash against Chelsea away from home next, one can be sure that the Foxes will need to improve significantly in order to return to winning ways.

Matty James and Tom Lawrence are the two players unavailable with injuries ahead of the clash for Leicester.

Chelsea vs Leicester City Match Prediction

Leicester remained unbeaten in their three encounters against Chelsea last season, claiming two victories in the process and the Foxes will hope to extend their good record against the Blues.

However, Leicester simply have not been at the races during the current campaign so far and while Claudio Raneiri’s men should put up a good showing at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Chelsea are expected to claim the three points from the encounter.
