Chelsea predicted lineup against Leicester

Chelsea predicted lineup against Leicester

Chelsea will welcome Leicester City on Sunday evening with the aim of picking their first win of the season, after the Manchester United debacle last week. 

Leicester, on the other hand, will be hoping a repeat of their rare victory last time they visited the Bridge, after a discouraging draw against Wolves in their opening match last time out. 

Lampard has a few injuries going into the match, with his backline overly stretched after Andreas Christensen suffered a knock in midweek against Liverpool

If the Dane misses out entirely, and with Rudiger not ready to start yet, Lampard might be forced to start Fikayo Tomori alongside Kurt Zouma.

N'Golo Kante started the match against Liverpool in Turkey and might be in line to start alongside Jorginho, who also impressed in midweek. 

Christian Pulisic and Pedro will most likely start on the flanks, while Kovacic and Mason Mount will also get the nod with the latter playing as a number 10.

Olivier Giroud led the lines well against the Reds in midweek, and he might get the nod ahead of Tammy Abraham. 

Predicted Xi: Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Tomori, Zouma, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho; Pedro, Mount, Pulisic, and Giroud.
