Chelsea v Leicester preview: Jamie Vardy fit to return

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

The west London side's last Premier League game saw Antonio Conte's men squander a lead to draw 2-2 with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium following Hector Bellerin's late equaliser. The Spanish striker made a blistering start to his Premier League career, but the goals have dried up of late.

Author's Verdict: The in-form side, Chelsea are favourites to win the clash. Morata scored six goals in his first six league appearances for Chelsea but has netted only four times in his 13 top flight games since.

Responding to Rohr's comments, the Frenchman said: "We don't know about what the national trainer said". Playing away from home at Chelsea will be a very hard task for the Foxes but they might just cause the Blues some problems.

That being said, Toffees manager Sam Allardyce indicated prior to Barkley's move he could be fit in "early January", meaning a week in Chelsea training could be sufficient for the player to feature in some aspect. "This shows we have a good player".

Analysts pointed out that even if the benefit from the tax deal was excluded, the profit number would be in line with estimates. Parekh also said that he will lay out strategic priorities for the company by April, for which a review is now underway.

"Of course now he has more consistency in his game but always he is fantastic in his play and has the ability and capacity to make good penetration and give good assists".

Having said that, I think Chelsea will have too much for a Leicester side whose form has been up and down. And with the Norwich replay coming up next week, he has to extend similar considerations to that game as well, which is likely to see a well-rotated squad once again.

He will be available for the game, there is no problem with Jamie.

Chelsea have no fresh injury concerns and a full squad to choose from, with the exception being new signing Ross Barkley, who is now ruled out due to a lack of fitness, so won't be making his Blues debut just yet.
