Mount in for Kovacic, Willian on the bench as Chelsea lineup against Leicester

Andreas Christensen has shaken off a knock he suffered in the match against Liverpool in midweek and has started alongside Kurt Zouma in the heart of defense against Leicester City. 

The rest of the team remains largely unchanged, with Mason Mount being the only other player in the starting lineup who did not start against Liverpool. 

Kante and Jorginho will operate in midfield as was the case in midweek, with Mount, who has replaced Kovacic playing more as a number 10.

Christian Pulisic and Pedro will operate on the wings, while Giroud, who opened the scoring in Istanbul will lead the liens again. 

 

Leicester, on the other hand, have most of their key player in the starting lineup and will be led by Vardy, who scored the only goal as they beat the hosts 1-0 last time at the Bridge. 

 

 

Both sides are fighting to pick their first win of the season, after Chelsea lost their first match 4-0 away to United, while Leicester drew 0-0 against Wolves.
