    Premier League LIVE – Chelsea Vs. Leicester City

    Probable Lineups…DiegoCostaKasperSchmeichel

    Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Matic, Fabregas, Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Costa

    Jose Mourinho will have a fully fit squad to face newly promoted side Leicester City and will most likely refrain from making any major changes. Filipe Luis may still need to wait for his Premier League debut with Cesar Azpilicueta probably getting to nod to continue at left back. Ramires, who missed last weeks game with a suspension carried on from last season should only earn a place on the bench as Mourinho continues with Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas in the middle of the park. The only chance could see Andre Schurrle rested with Willian taking his place along the right flanks.

    Leicester City (4-4-2): Schmeichel, Laet, Moore, Morgan, Konchesky, Mahrez, King, Hammond, Knockaert, Ulloa, Nugent

    Leicester City have made a positive start to their Premier League campaign picking up a point in their latest match as they face a very strong Chelsea side. Nigel Pearson may be without central midfielder Daniel Drinkwater after he picked up an injury in the match against Everton. Dean Hammond will most likely be called to replace him while Jamie Vardy and Marc Albrighton should not feature as the pair are still carry a knock. Matthew Upson continues his time on the sideline and will not be part of the match due to his lengthy foot injury. Super-sub Chris Wood will probably not get a starting place against the Blues, but could be called upon later in the match.

    What the fans are saying…

    Remember this?

    Chelsea overcame Leicester City back in 2012 by a rather large 5-2 margin to book a place in the FA Cup Semi finals. With the Foxes currently high on confidence, this Premier League match could either see them get revenge, or prove that the Blues are just too strong.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Chelsea vs. Leicester City: An Alternative Preview

    Chelsea won four Barclays Premier League games in a row against Leicester before the Foxes were relegated in 2004.

    The Foxes have only ever won one of eight Premier League trips to Stamford Bridge (W1 D2 L5).

    Chelsea are top of the Premier League after the first matchday. None of the previous three instances (1999, 2008, 2010) have seen them go on to win the title.

    Chelsea have kept seven clean sheets in their last eight Premier League games at Stamford Bridge.

    But Chelsea won neither of their final two Premier League home games in 2013-14 (D1 L1).

    Only once has Jose Mourinho gone three Premier League home games without a win (April-May 2007).

    Cesc Fabregas has assisted 50 goals in his last 104 Premier League appearances.

    Fabregas assisted only one goal and failed to score in six Premier League appearances at Stamford Bridge for Arsenal.

    Leicester won 14 of their 23 away games in the Championship last season, three more than any other side.

    The Foxes' last away defeat in the league came last December v Brighton.
