Predicted Blues XI for Premier League clash v Leicester


Predicted Blues XI for Premier League clash v Leicester

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.

The England worldwide missed Saturday's FA Cup draw at former club Fleetwood but will travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday. He has all the qualities to play for all the great teams in Europe, of course.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has refuted claims that summer signing Kelechi Iheanacho is close to the King Power Stadium exit.

The striker will travel to Chelsea on Saturday after recovering from the groin injury which made him sit out the goalless draw at Highbury Stadium last Saturday.

Wes Morgan and Danny Simpson (hamstring) and Robert Huth (ankle) are out but Christian Fuchs and Vicente Iborra are fit for Claude Puel's side at Stamford Bridge.

Next up for Antonio Conte's side is the visit of Leicester to Stamford Bridge tomorrow - and several Blues men were pictured preparing today in a training session ahead of the Premier League clash.

"The team is around Eden because he is the most important player for them". Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti also won 25, with Mourinho drawing and Ancelotti losing their 31st home games in charge.

He was asked to protect the back four so he wouldn't be able to get forward as much as he did when he played domestic games.

Davide Zappacosta (who had no goals or assists in his first 11 Premier League games) has come off the bench to either score or assist a goal in each of his last two league appearances.

Puel said: "He can continue to make progress". I hope he can have more game time in the second half of the season'.

"He's an interesting player for the future and will be between the Under-23 and Premier League squad - he has quality to play in Premier League".
