Chelsea | WDLDWD

Chelsea head into this match following a 0-0 FA Cup tied result against Liverpool.
In that match, Chelsea had 47% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. On the other side, Liverpool had 17 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Liverpool ran out winners after a 5-6 penalty shootout.
Their most recent results reveal that there has been much resilience in the Chelsea backline. Chelsea have been mean at the back, resulting in the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their previous 6 games standing at 4. We will just have to see if that trend will be continued on into this next match.

Leicester City | DLLLWW 🌤

🗞️ Team News: Chelsea

There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy squad. Ben Chilwell (Fitness) won’t play.
In all likelihood, The Blues could go for a 3-4-2-1 system in the match with Edouard Mendy, Cesar Azpilicueta, Trevoh Chalobah, Antonio Ruediger, Reece James, N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Marcos Alonso, Hakim Ziyech, Mason Mount and Romelu Lukaku.

📋 Team News: Leicester City

Owing to an otherwise available squad, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers to contend with. Wilfred Ndidi (Knee Injury) won’t be playing here.
From our viewpoint, The Foxes seem likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 formation, giving starts to Kasper Schmeichel, Timothy Castagne, Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans, James Justin, Youri Tielemans, K. Dewsbury-Hall, Marc Albrighton, James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy.
