Chelsea will be eyeing back-to-back Premier League wins when they face Leicester City on the road this afternoon.
The Blues are set to be without Reece James, Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for today’s trip to the Midlands.
Kepa Arrizabalaga has been ever-present in goal since the World Cup with Edouard Mendy out with a finger injury. The Spaniard made a stunning save against Borussia Dortmund in midweek and he is expected to start.
There could be two changes in the backline. James is out with an illness and he is likely to be replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek at right wing-back. Ben Chilwell should continue on the opposite end.
Meanwhile, Marc Cucurella could drop to the bench despite his impressive display in midweek. Benoit Badiashile should be reinstated in the back three alongside Wesley Fofana and Kalidou Koulibaly.
In midfield, Enzo Fernandez and Mateo Kovacic are pretty much guaranteed starters. The same can be said for Joao Felix and Kai Havertz in the Blues front three.
The only change could come on the left wing with Raheem Sterling nursing a hamstring issue. Mykhaylo Mudryk looks set to start after two games on the bench.
Predicted Chelsea line-up (3-4-3): Arrizabalaga; Fofana, Koulibaly, Badiashile; Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic, Fernandez, Chilwell; Havertz, Felix, Mudryk.
