Injury boost for Leicester ahead of Chelsea matchup

Injury boost for Leicester ahead of Chelsea matchup

Read on for a preview of Saturday's Stamford Bridge showdown, complete with the latest team news and essential live-stream information.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of his side's Chelsea matchup, Leicester boss Claude Puel was questioned on the fitness of a number of the Foxes' stars, with the main focus on striker Jamie Vardy.

"After, I don't know if he has to stay at Chelsea or not - is that a problem?".

Puel said: "He can continue to make progress".

"He has all the qualities to play for all the great teams in Europe".

Puel said: "I think it is important to continue to play with a good ambition and with a good play on the floor".

"Iheanacho is a young player, he signed this season with us and we have to develop him and I hope he can have more game time in the second part of the season".

Eden Hazard made his professional debut under Leicester boss Claude Puel when the two were at Lille.

It takes a big leap of faith to back a team to win that hasn't tasted success in 20 consecutive league games but if ever West Brom are going to get back to winning ways then they won't get many better chances than the one they have this weekend. As a matter of fact, Chelsea have only conceded four goals within their last ten home games in all competitions, including none in their last three so Leicester will have to find a route past that tough rear-guard if they are to attain any sort of result. Meanwhile, Stamford Bridge has been turned back into a fortress, with the 1-0 loss to Manchester City 3.5 months ago the last time Chelsea didn't collect at least a share of the spoils (14 wins, 3 draws). "But he had the same quality at 16 when he started in the first team at Lille, it was the same".

I was going to leave Bristol City out this weekend because they could well be exhausted from their near-heroic exploits at Man City on Tuesday, but they're odds against at home to an inconsistent Norwich side which has tempted me to back them to win or draw.

It's a bet that we risked when the Clarets played away to both Brighton and Huddersfield; both games ended 0-0 but on another day they could easily have won either or both of those games. "A good response is always a collective response with a competitive organisation".
