Leicester City Team News & Preview
Leicester City host Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend and the Foxes will be looking to extend their recent unbeaten run with a positive result at home.
The defending champions have had a very poor season so far and are 15th in the Premier League table after failing to win 15 of their first 20 games. However, they have shown some improvement lately and are heading into this game on the back of a three-match unbeaten run.
The major blow for the home side will be the absence of Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani, both of whom are away on international duty with Algeria at the Africa Cup of Nations. Daniel Amartey is also at AFCON.
Predicted Leicester City Starting Lineup (4-4-1-1): Schmeichel; Simpson, Huth, Morgan, Fuchs; Musa, Ndidi, Drinkwater, Albrighton; Okazaki; Vardy
