Match preview

Fresh from claiming the largest win of his Chelsea profession so far, Graham Potter takes his Blues side to the King Power Stadium for Saturday's encounter a confidence-sapped Leicester City.

The site visitors saw off Borussia Dortmund 2-1 on aggregate in the Champions Organization last 16 in midweek, while Brendan Rodgers's men went down 1-0 to Southampton last break.

At a ground where they notoriously put 9 previous Southampton just three as well as a fifty percent years back, Leicester were stunted by the Saints at St Mary's, stopping working to transform 65% ownership into anything purposeful as they sagged to an additional painful defeat.

A singular Carlos Alcaraz strike in the 35th minute was all that was required to separate the two sides on the night, condemning the Foxes to a 4th straight defeat - consisting of three Premier League beats straight - during their latest preventing spell of form.

In addition to seeing his side stop working to locate the rear of the internet or perhaps the target, Rodgers underwent incantations from the followers calling for his departure, as Leicester rot in 15th in the Premier Organization table - simply 2 factors clear of the decline zone and a more 10 adrift of a top-half area.

Couple of would knock Leicester for shedding to Collection and Manchester United, however going out of the FA Mug by Blackburn Rovers prior to squandering opportunity after possibility versus Southampton is disconcerting, and the Foxes might now come to be the first Premier Organization team on record to have no shots on target 3 games in a row.

Rodgers is likewise in jeopardy of making unwanted personal history - the 50-year-old has actually lost a joint-high 15 organization games this season as well as might make that 16 this weekend - as well as Leicester get in Saturday's competition having actually fallen short to score in 4 of their last 6 Premier Organization residence battles.

The protection of Graham Potter's job has actually additionally been a hot topic in the Premier Organization managerial landscape, but the Englishman has surely obtained some of cry' disgruntled followers back on his side by masterminding a thoroughly-deserved success over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions Organization.

In an all-too acquainted sight for Blues advocates, the ball appear predestined to not go across the line at Stamford Bridge, yet Raheem Sterling's strike and a retaken Kai Havertz fine saw Chelsea eliminate a 1-0 deficiency from the initial leg and also publication their place in the quarter-finals.

Currently indulging in the success of back-to-back success adhering to last week's top-flight triumph over Leeds United, Potter might be beginning to vindicate the board's choice to keep him on, but Wesley Fofana's game-winning header versus the Whites did little to improve Chelsea's 10th-placed standing in the Premier Organization table.

With an 11-point gap to make up to fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur - who have played a game extra - going for delight in the Champions Organization is probably cry' ideal path back right into continental competition next year, as well as their away ton of money still produce entirely undesirable reading.

Indeed, Chelsea are now winless in their last 10 road matches in all competitors - losing seven of them and racking up just 4 goals in the process - but the Blues dominated 2-1 against the Foxes at Stamford Bridge in August and could record their first league double over the hosts given that 2016-17, when they wrestled the Premier Organization crown out of Leicester's understanding.

Leicester's anguish at Southampton was compounded by an injury to Harvey Barnes, who needed to be withdrawn at half time as a result of a twisted ankle, although he is not believed to have actually experienced any type of serious damage and also may be readily available here.

Nonetheless, Saturday's game is anticipated to find too soon for James Justin, Youri Tielemans and Victor Kristiansen - while Ryan Bertrand and Jonny Evans remain doubts as they develop their particular fitness levels, however the last is in with a chance of making the team

Kelechi Iheanacho was guilty of wasting numerous possibilities against Southampton, however Rodgers has jumped to the protection of the Nigerian and ought to keep faith in him from the initial whistle right here.

In a similar way, Chelsea have a couple of certain absentees of their very own to make do without in Thiago Silva, Armando Broja and also Edouard Mendy, while N'Golo Kante might not be thought about for choice against his old club as Potter prompts care over his physical fitness.

The luckless Reece James will certainly likewise sit this one out because of ailment, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (back) and also Sterling (hamstring) are additionally skeptical, so Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mykhaylo Mudryk can feel great of making starts.

Mason Mount missed the win over Dortmund due to suspension, however he will also require examining after a stomach issue maintained him out of last weekend break's clash with Leeds, while Cesar Azpilicueta may be given a bit more time to recoup from the sickening head injury he endured versus Southampton.

Potter's choice to bring Marc Cucurella back in from the cold was warranted in midweek, but Benoit Badiashile - who was disqualified for that connection alongside Aubameyang - will anticipate an instant recall to the backline here.

Leicester City feasible beginning lineup:
Ward; Pereira, Soutar, Faes, Chestnut; Ancient, Food, Dewsbury-Hall, Maddison; Dhaka, Iheanacho

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Kepa; Badiashile, Koulibaly, Flying; Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic, Fernandez, Chilwell; Print, Havertz, Felix

We say: Leicester City 0-1 Chelsea
Changing to a back three has seemingly led to a higher feeling of protective self-control for Chelsea, whose strong rearguard needs to maintain a profligate and also most likely Barnes-less Leicester away with very little difficulty.

Locating a professional side is still an operate in progression for cry - that have actually been pestered by a few fresh health and fitness concerns - but with confidence degrees slowly rising on the back of current outcomes, we trust Potter's side to videotape a 3rd win on the bounce.
