Predicted Chelsea lineup vs Leicester City

Chelsea will be aiming to secure back-to-back Premier League wins when they face Leicester City on the road tonight.



The Blues are seventh on the table with 29 points and they can jump one spot by ending a five-match winless league streak against the Foxes.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Lineup:

Edouard Mendy is the Blues' undisputed goalkeeper for the Premier League and he is expected to feature ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga tonight.

In the defence, Reece James could come in for Cesar Azpilicueta at right-back after overcoming a nagging knee injury. At the heart of the backline, Kurt Zouma is likely to replace Antonio Rudiger.

In the midfield, there may be no changes. Jorginho should continue in the holding role with N'Golo Kante sidelined with a hamstring injury. Mateo Kovacic and Mason Mount should feature just ahead of the Italian.

Further forward, Christian Pulisic is likely to be replaced by Callum Hudson-Odoi on the left wing after another sub-par display. Tammy Abraham may get the nod to lead the line ahead of Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner.

Predicted Lineup (4-3-3): Edouard Mendy; Reece James, Kurt Zouma, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell; Jorginho, Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic; Hakim Ziyech, Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi
