Chelsea vs Leicester City: Premier League TV, live streaming

The last two teams to win the Premier League face each other on Saturday as the Blues welcome the Foxes to west London

Chelsea are undefeated in their last nine matches but after three straight draws will be determined to get back to winning ways against Leicester.

The champions of England are 16 points behind leaders Manchester City and have little chance of retaining their crown.

Chelsea had a midweek clash against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup, so Claude Puel's side have had longer to prepare for the match having had a free midweek. Leicester had started well under Puel but have suffered a few disappointing results over the winter period.

The previous two Premier League champions face off on Saturday as Chelsea host Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte's 2016-17 title winners host 2015-16 champions Leicester, though neither side is likely to lift the trophy this season with Manchester City running away at the top of the table.

But there is still plenty to play for this term, with Chelsea seeking to leapfrog Manchester United into second place and Claude Puel's Foxes aiming to put distance between themselves and the bottom half of the table.

Team news

Ross Barkley has been training with Chelsea's first team but is being eased back into things after seven months out. It isn't clear when Conte will use his new £15 million signing.

David Luiz returned from injury against Norwich City last week but he was put back on the bench in Chelsea's midweek cup tie against Arsenal. 

Charly Musonda has also made a full recovery from a foot complaint that saw him miss out in much of December and he came off the bench against Norwich.

Eden Hazard has also recovered from a knock to his calf that saw him sit out the third round FA Cup tie completely, but he played against the Gunners. 

Chelsea are thought to have no other injury worries ahead of this weekend's match. Baba Rahman seems to be inching towards a loan move return to Schalke after a long-term knee injury..

Provisional squad: Courtois, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Fabregas, Drinkwater, Kante, Hazard, Morata, Pedro, Bakayoko, Moses, Kenedy, Musonda, Zappacosta, Willian, Batshuayi, Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Clarke-Salter, Sterling, Eduardo, Ampadu, Hudson-Odoi.​
