Chelsea v Leicester preview: Jamie Vardy fit to return

Share

The Blues have drawn their previous three games in all competitions, with the last two both ending in stalemates.

The feisty Italian coache's future remains the subject of intense speculation, and it will be interesting to see if the Stamford Bridge board fulfil his wish for new signings this month.

Leicester go to Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League with Jamie Vardy fit after a groin injury.

Hazard has also won the EFL Cup and Europa League at Stamford Bridge while also being named the Premier League Player of the Year in 2015.

He 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".

CES 2018: Tech's biggest conference plunged into darkness after power fails
Many companies were forced to suspend their presentations and barred from conducting demos at the annual tech fair. Despite this, many have noted that power outage and the weather were not the only problems of CES 2018 .

Huddersfield continue to make their doubters look foolish, and now sit in 11th place in the table.

West Ham have climbed out of the drop zone since their hired dour David, and put in a impressive defensive display against London rivals Spurs to come away with a point in their last Premier League outing.

Leicester have both scored and conceded in 14 of their 22 league games this season - more than any other Premier League side. This remains a key period for The Geordies however, with Rafa Benitez in dire need of adding quality to his squad during the transfer window.

This will be a tight encounter, but I reckon that Rafa will just about get the better of his counterpart Carlos Carvalhal. Chelsea ran out as 2-1 victors in the corresponding fixture earlier this season with goals from Alvaro Morata and N'Golo Kante. This is a good side with good players and although it is unlikely they will ever win the title again, this is a still a team that can win games. Virgil van Dijk scored on his Liverpool debut, Phillipe Coutinho has joined Barcelona for €160 million, a war of words between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte has gone to a different level, VAR was used for an FA Cup game and League Cup game and Martin O'Neill has been heavily linked with the Stoke job after Mark Hughes was sacked last weekend. We can see their squad and they have two or three players for each position.

So this game falls squarely between what was obviously a first-team contest and what will most likely be one for the backups and kids.
