Leicester City face off against Chelsea in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Normally, this is a game in which many pundits would back the Blues to take all three points.

This time around, the Foxes can back themselves to score a result from the game.

Leicester play against a new look Blues side managed by Frank Lampard which suffered a 4-0 demolition at the hands of Manchester United last weekend.

Lampard’s side would have however regained some confidence after they managed to hold their own against Liverpool during the UEFA Super Cup game this week before eventually losing via the lottery of penalties.

Leicester have no major injury concerns according to a report published by Sky Sports. 

The report did add that Leicester defender Filip Benkovic remains out of action due to an ankle problem.

Dennis Praet could be in line to make his Premier League debut for the Foxes after having arrived at the club from Sampdoria during the summer transfer window.

Leicester are known for keeping the ball well and moving it. Should the likes of Youri Tielemans, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy deliver on the day, a surprise result could be on the cards.

Chelsea have dominated meetings between the two sides. However, they did lose 1-0 against the Foxes at home last season and that was only their second defeat against them from 13 meetings in the competition.

Should Leicester manage to win the game, it will be the first time that they have won consecutive League games against the Blues since October 1961.
