Chelsea are currently at the bottom of Group E in the Champions League and are a desperate for a win against Salzburg.

Chelsea are desperate to bounce back and return to winning ways when they welcome Leicester City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Blues progress was dented as they suffered a shock 3-0 defeat at the hands of Leeds United at Elland Road.

The defeat saw them drop to 12th place in the English Premier league standings with 4 points.

Meanwhile, Leicester have drawn once and lost two consecutive games, leaving them in 19th place with only a point to their name.

The Foxes failed to beat Chelsea last season in the league with a 1-1 away draw that was preceded by an embarrassing 3-0 home defeat.

The pressure is on Thomas Tuchel’s side to bag all three points that would at the very least bring them back into the top 10.

The visitors had to beat Stockport on penalties in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night and need to find their form if they are to beat Chelsea.

Chelsea vs Leicester team news

The hosts have found it difficult to find goals and Raheem Sterling’s form is becoming questionable.

He may still have a place in the starting XI as a false 9, flanked by Mason Mount and Kai Havertz.

Ngolo Kante remains sidelined, meaning Jorginho and Connor Gallagher may be selected to partner in the heart of midfield.

Kalidou Koulibaly was sent off against Leeds and will be replaced by Trevor Chalobah.

For the visitors, their side is unlikely to change with Jamie Vardy still desperate to get off the mark leading the line.

James Maddison has not began the season badly and will be a key component of the visitors attack.
