Chelsea vs Leicester City Preview: Verdy returns for crunch match

Chelsea vs Leicester City Preview: Verdy returns for crunch match

Chelsea's frenetic fixture list continues on Saturday with a home Premier League game against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.

The England worldwide pulled up after racing Jamie Vardy for a high ball over the Chelsea defence and hobbled off the pitch holding his right leg.

Morata managed just three touches in the opposition box all game - his worst return from a completed Premier League game this season - while only four completed crosses from 19 attempted illustrated the wayward service on offer.

Conte has called on his players to be more ruthless in front of goal and defender Antonio Rudiger agreed that enterprising build-up counts for nothing without a goal to show at the end of it.

"If we just keep concentration on Eden, other players can make the difference also".

The Foxes beat Huddersfield 3-0 in their latest league encounter, but had gone four matches without a win prior to that, losing three of them. "Before the result, it is important to play, always".

On the negative side, while Antonio Conte's squad have remained relatively unscathed by injury there is a creeping sense of unease among Chelsea supporters that the lack of respite is starting to affect the Blues boss and his players. But at the same time I saw great will and desire to win the game. Leicester were the better side and created more opportunities, excelling in the first half before dropping much deeper after the break. But I trust in my work and what we are doing in these two seasons. "At the same time, against Norwich we played 3-4-3 with Pedro, Willian and Batshuayi, but we didn't score".

Wes Morgan and Danny Simpson (both hamstring) and Robert Huth (ankle) are out but Christian Fuchs (illness) and Vicente Iborra (hamstring) are fit for Claude Puel's side at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have no fresh injury concerns and a full squad to choose from, with the exception being new signing Ross Barkley, who is now ruled out due to a lack of fitness, so won't be making his Blues debut just yet.
