English Premier League leaders Chelsea are itching to maintain their lead atop the standings when they face Manchester United on Sunday.

Chelsea have shown consistency this season and are looking to get a ninth win of the English Premier League season against Leicester City on Saturday.

The league resumes after the international break and the match at the King Power Stadium is the first of matchday 12 in the English top flight.

Before the break, Chelsea dropped points in a 1-1 draw against Burnley but remain top of the standings with 26, three points clear.

Leicester on the other hand have not won in two games and are languishing in 12th place with 15 points and need to avoid defeat that would see them drop further.

The Blues have won their last three away games without shipping a single goal and have conceded just once on the road in the 2021-22 Premier League season.

Youri Tielemans is the latest injury concern for the hosts and will miss this clash after being ruled out for a few weeks.

He joins James Justin and Wesley Fofana and Ryan Bertrand on the absentee list.

Jamie Vardy is set to lead the attacking line with help from James Maddison and probably Kelechi Iheanacho.

For the visitors it’s something to smile about as Romelu Lukaku and Mason Mount are set to be available for selection after recovering from injury.

This could see Ross Barkley return to the bench to accommodate Mount but Lukaku’s return could be postponed.
