Team News: Leicester City
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers will be thankful to have no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash thanks to a fully healthy squad available to choose from.
Team News: Chelsea
Owing to an otherwise available squad, there is just the lone fitness worry for the Chelsea boss Frank Lampard to contend with. Charly Musonda Jr. (Knee Surgery) misses out for this game.
Our assessment here is that Leicester City could find themselves up against it to see themselves scoring against this Chelsea outfit who will likely gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore expecting a narrow 0-1 winning margin for Chelsea at the end of the 90 minutes.
It should be a good one.
