Chelsea's hectic schedule sees them take to the field for the second of three home matches in the space of seven days when they lock horns with Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon. Ahead of this week's Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday evening, Chelsea have suffered just a single defeat since early November and boss Antonio Conte will be confident of managing at least one piece of silverware this term. Nevertheless the Blues' hectic schedule wasn't helped by their inability to beat Championship side Norwich City in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend and the resultant replay on Tuesday evening will add further to the side's commitments over the coming weeks.

Leicester City's hopes of reaching the fourth round of the FA Cup were put on hold thanks to a goal-less draw at Fleetwood Town last time out although their schedule isn't quite as hectic as Chelsea's given that they are involved in two fewer competitions than the reigning champions.

This weekend's hosts helped themselves to two of the Foxes' Premier League title-winning midfielders over the last two summers and Leicester City may find themselves lined-up against the likes of Danny Drinkwater and N'Golo Kante, however it is Riyad Mahrez who is the subject of much debate regarding his future at the King Power Stadium, the player being linked with a big-money move to a Liverpool side which is awash with cash following the £150 million sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

Leicester boss Claude Puel enjoyed an excellent start to life in the East Midlands, however Leicester's form of late has been less convincing with just a single victory in seven outings and while Chelsea may be somewhat fatigued following their midweek EFL Cup clash with Arsenal, we believe that they will edge their way past the visiting Foxes and into second place in the Premier League for the time being.
