CHELSEA and Leicester get the Premier League back underway after the international break as they meet at the King Power in Saturday's lunchtime kick off.

Chelsea currently lead the way in Premier League standings by three points, ahead of Manchester City and West Ham.

The Blues are unbeaten in eight games in all competitions, inlcuding seven wins, though their 1-1 draw at home to Burnley a fortnight ago might have raised a few eyebrows.

Hosts Leicester aren't having such a productive season, as they sit down in 12th in league.

The Foxes are winless in their last three games in all competitions and will be desperate to turn their fortunes around and climb up the table.

A win on Saturday would see them climb to sixth, though potentially just for a few hours.

Belgium internationals Youri Tielemans and Romelu Lukaku are both doubts for the game after the Leicester midfielder was pulled out of the national side with a calf injury last week, and Lukaku is still nursing the injury which has kept him out of Chelsea's last three fixtures.

Leicester defenders Wesley Fofana, James Justin and Ryan Bertrand are out injured along with wide man Marc Albrighton.

Mateo Kovacic, Timo Werner and Marcos Alonso are all expected to miss out for Chelsea through injury.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has a decent record against Chelsea, with two wins, three draws and two losses since taking over at the King Power in 2019.

Rodgers and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel have met just twice in their managerial careers, both coming in the back end of last season.

Rodgers' Foxes defeated the London club in last season's FA Cup final before Tuchel got revenge the following week with a win that bumped Leicester out of the Champions League spots in the penultimate game of the season.
