Chelsea v Leicester City

Chelsea v Leicester City”

Since losing to Man City in September, Chelsea have won each of their last seven home Premier League games, shipping just three goals and keeping five clean sheets in that time. Chelsea can easily win even on an off day, and Leicester can only win with a five-star performance - such is the difference. Unlike his remarkably poor record against Arsenal, Conte is a ideal 4-for-4 against the Foxes, with 12 scored and 3 conceded in all competitions.

With all that put together, it is hard not to pick Chelsea to win this game.

Chelsea team news: Just 2 losses in the last 22 games in all competitions for Conte's men, but the 4 draws in the last 6, including 3 on the bounce, have left a bit of a Hiddink-esque aftertaste around the place.

Ross Barkley is expected to be fit to make his debut following a hamstring injury in Chelsea's FA Cup third-round replay with Norwich next Wednesday.

Leicester don't have a good record against Chelsea, having lost nine of their last 11 league matches against them.

Responding to Rohr's comments, the Frenchman said: "We don't know about what the national trainer said".

"I think in our games against the great teams, we have always had good situations and good possibilities - like against Manchester United and Tottenham". Conte has a very talented side and although they are not playing as well as Manchester City, they should be good enough to get a win in this game. The 50-50 pattern continues across the home and away split, too, which will be something to pay great attention to, especially given their counter-attacking prowess.

The England global missed Saturday's FA Cup draw at former club Fleetwood but will travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Claude Puel will be without right back Danny Simpson and center back Wes Morgan. In the past Leicester haven't signed bad players from Ligue 2, like [Riyad] Mahrez. The 21-year-old has started just two Premier League games since his move to the Midlands, and has only one goal for the club, coming in a 3-1 Carabao Cup win.
