It feels like a very long time since we were under siege from Manchester United. It’s only been two weeks but they were pretty eventful. Half the squad was playing internationals and there was a fair amount of transfer business.
Today might look a little similar, with one team controlling 70% of possession, but let’s not forget that this is a meeting of the two most recent Premier League champions.

Leicester City Team News:
The break has been good for us and the injuries are starting to clear up. Robert Huth and Vicente Iborra are back in training but probably not ready yet, according to Shakespeare, but Kelechi Iheanacho could be fit to start after appearing for Nigeria over the break.
Loan signing Aleksander Dragovic will be available for selection, but Adrien Silva, of course, will not be. Probably until January.
Chelsea Team News:
Gary Cahill remains out through suspension, but that could be it for Chelsea. Eden Hazard stepped up his recovery from a broken ankle on Belgium duty and could feature, while Danny Drinkwater has made a dramatic recovery, well timed with his move to a new club. His fellow deadline day acquisition Davide Zappacosta will also be available.
