Leicester city welcome Chelsea on Saturday as the last two Premier League title winners face off at the King Power Stadium.



Antonio Conte's defending champions travel to Leicester - unlikely heroes of the 2015-16 season - with Italian coach putting his side well on the road to recovery.



The Blues lost their opening game of the new campaign 3-2 at home to Burnley, but wins against Tottenham and Everton have seen Chelsea get back on track.


Craig Shakespeare's Leicester will also welcome not one former midfielder, but two, as Danny Drinkwater returns to his former club in his first game as a Chelsea player since joining former Foxes star N'Golo Kante in west London following a deadline day transfer.

Team News

Leicester reportedly missed the registration deadline for €30 million signing Adrien Silva by 14 seconds, and he remains in limbo and will not be available for this match.

Vicente Iborra is a doubt as he works his way back from a back problem but Robert Huth and Kelechi Iheanacho could both be involved.

Potential starting XI: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs; Mahrez, Ndidi, James, Albrighton; Okazaki, Vardy.

Chelsea are nearly at full strength, with Eden Hazard, Pedro and Tiemoue Bakayoko all fit and Danny Drinkwater ready to make his debut against his former club.
