Chelsea vs Leicester City 13 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

Leicester boss Claude Puel has backed £25m striker Kelechi Iheanacho to deliver

Chelsea's focus returns to the Premier League on Saturday for a potentially tricky encounter when Leicester City visit Stamford Bridge.

Vardy, who turned 31 on Thursday, has recovered from the groin injury that kept the England global out of the 2016 champions line-up for the FA Cup third round 0-0 draw with his former club Fleetwood Town last weekend.

Iheanacho has yet to score a Premier League goal since joining Leicester from Manchester City in August, while Musa has not appeared in the league this season. A 2-2 draw with Arsenal and two 0-0 affairs in cup ties means Chelsea are there for the taking.

Jamie Vardy is fit again after missing Leicester's FA Cup trip to his former club Fleetwood. The new signing of Chelsea, Ross Barkley, is doubtful for this fixture against Leicester as he was sidelined for 7 months because of the hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, Danny Simpson faces a late fitness test on his hamstring. Antonio Conte's side sit 3rd in the Premier League, just one point behind United, but a whopping 16 points behind the remarkable Manchester City. After four wins in December, Leicester City have arguably lost their way.

Ford and Postmates Will Test Autonomous Delivery Vehicles
Ford has announced a new partnership with the delivery service Postmates centered around the self-driving vehicle sector. He announced a partnership with Postmates and mentioned Ford's collaborations with Domino's and Lyft.

Bears Hire Helfrich as OC
Hiring a veteran defensive coordinator was paramount for Nagy, a first-time head coach who will be directing the offense. After 21 years of coaching collegiately, Mark Helfrich is making the jump to the NFL.

Chelsea's home form is another thing Leicester will have against them come kickoff. Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti also won 25, with Mourinho drawing and Ancelotti losing their 31st home games in charge.

Author's Verdict: The in-form side, Chelsea are favourites to win the clash. I hope he can have more game time in the second half of the season. This is a game between the two last winners of the English Premier League and as a result, we should be able to witness a top quality game of football.

"Before I watched the Carabao Cup semi-final with Arsenal I would have said Chelsea would win this 3-0, but I'm not so sure now", Merson told Sky Sports.

Puel said: "I think it is important to continue to play with a good ambition and with a good play on the floor".
