Leicester will need to be more incisive than they were in defeat at Crystal Palace last weekend but they are facing a Chelsea side who have rediscovered their rhythm. Eden Hazard, his ankles recovered for another week, is back at his early season best and is likely to start in the No 9 role again. This could be an awkward occasion for the visitors.
