Here is how Chelsea will line up against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge, featuring Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas.
Chelsea will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League when they take on Leicester City this afternoon.
Jose Mourinho’s side kicked off their 2014-15 league campaign with a 3-1 comeback victory over newly-promoted Burnley at Turf Moor on Monday.
Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas, who joined Chelsea from Barcelona this summer, was the star of the show as he played a key role in two of the goals.
The Blues will be hoping for yet another convincing display against another of the promoted teams, Leicester, at home.
Nigel Pearson’s team played out a credible 2-2 draw with top-four hopefuls Everton at the King Power Stadium last weekend and will have yet another tough task on their hands at the Bridge.
Chelsea will be heavy favourites heading into the match as they have one of the best and strongest squads in the Premier League.
Last season the four-time English champions often struggled against the ‘lesser’ sides in the English top flight, but this term Mourinho’s team have more creativity and power.
