Leicester City: Daniel Drinkwater, Matthew James & Matthew Upson - Out; Marc Albrighton & Jamie Vardy - Doubtful
Roundup on form
Leicester City drew their opening game against Everton 2-2, in what was their first game in the Premier League since getting relegated in 2004.
As for Chelsea, they were the best team out of the title contenders, winning their opening match 3-1 against promoted Burnley.
Today, Chelsea entertain another promoted team, this time Championship champions Leicester. Head-to-head's are hard to judge between the two teams since they haven't been in the same division for several years, although in their last meeting in 2012, Chelsea won 5-2.
Ordinarily, Chelsea would be massive favourites in a match like this, however, teams like Leicester City caused them considerable problems last season.
Creativity was a massive problem for Chelsea then, but as we saw against Burnley, Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa were pivotal in giving the Blues a new edge up front.
This time around, Chelsea's wing positions could be the area to watch. Eden Hazard tends to save his best performances for the Stamford Bridge faithful and with him having something to prove after an average World Cup, expect him to get amongst the goals.
From a more tactical point of view, Leicester's left wing appears to be their weak link. Both Paul Konchesky and Knockaert have their defensive deficiencies, therefore it would not be a surprise if they were concede a goal from that side of the pitch.
Likewise, Diego Costa is a fair bit taller than Leicester City's centre backs and looked in rude form against Burnley. As long as service is good Costa should be able to bully his way into a goal.
A positive for Leicester could come in the form of Chelsea's over emphasis on attack. Against Everton, Leicester proved they can tangle with the big sides and stand firm; likewise, Chelsea showed that with Fabregas in the team, they lose defensive cover.
