Leicester vs Chelsea: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news and h2h results - preview today

Chelsea return to Premier League duty in Saturday’s early kick off away at Leicester City.

Three points clear after 11 games, Thomas Tuchel’s side have largely impressed thus far but did head into the last international break having dropped points at home to Burnley.

That, of course, represents a disappointment and harkened back to an issue to have plagued Chelsea last season; the lack of a convincing goalscorer.

Romelu Lukaku was recently pictured back in training but will not be rushed back into action right away at this early stage though, luckily for Chelsea, Saturday’s opposition aren’t exactly in brilliant form defensively. Late decisions on both Mason Mount and Timo Werner are expected.

Only four of the bottom five have conceded more often than Brendan Rodgers’ team this season and, while the King Power can hardly be considered as a place opposition teams would want to visit, have rarely resembled the team who beat Chelsea in May’s FA Cup final since returning from the summer break.

Date, kick-off time and venue

The match is scheduled for a 12.30pm GMT kick-off on Saturday November 20 2021.

The King Power Stadium in Leicester will host.
