Chelsea v Leicester City

Chelsea host Leicester City in the Premier League on Wednesday with the Blues looking to improve their current third-placed standing on the table.

Despite their strong run of late, Chelsea start the weekend 16 points behind leaders Manchester City.

JAMIE VARDY has recovered from the hamstring injury which forced him out of last Saturday's FA Cup tie against his old club Fleetwood Town.

Iheanacho has yet to score a Premier League goal since joining Leicester from Manchester City in August, while Musa has not appeared in the league this season.

The defending Premier League champions produced a disappointing performance in a goalless draw with Arsenal in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final clash at Stamford Bridge.

"It's not possible to mark him because he can not play just in the same position", he said.

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.

Leicester City have won just once in their 11 previous Premier League visits to Stamford Bridge (W1 D3 L7) - winning 2-0 in September 2000, with Muzzy Izzet and Stan Collymore getting on the scoresheet.

"The team is built around Eden because he is a valuable player and their most important player". The Foxes beat Chelsea 2-1 at the King Power Stadium in December 2015 which proved to be Jose Mourinho's last game in charge of the Blues.

Author's Verdict: The in-form side, Chelsea are favourites to win the clash. Islam Slimani worked well in a mostly full strength Leicester side last time out, scoring two goals against Huddersfield Town. They struggled in what was a poor game.

"He can make the difference, so for me he is a top player in Europe".

Having said that, I think Chelsea will have too much for a Leicester side whose form has been up and down.
