The Foxes, on the other hand, have lost their past two games after drawing with Brentford on the opening weekend of the season, and Brendan Rodgers’ side are heavy underdogs when they visit the capital this weekend.
Rodgers has said that midfielder James Maddison “had a twinge” in training this week.

Chelsea vs Leicester City preview
Leicester have surrendered at least two goals in each of their three matches this season, and Chelsea will be hopeful of resuming their scoring ways following their blank last weekend.
Keeping a clean sheet at Stamford Bridge, on the other hand, has proven difficult for Tuchel’s club, with the 2020 European champions only achieving three shutouts in their past 15 home Premier League games.
The arrival of one of the Premier League’s most consistent scoring sides on the road in recent years on Saturday might stretch that terrible defensive record even further.
Leicester have scored in 47 of their previous 55 away games in the English Premier League, and they drew their last away game 1-1 last season.
Chelsea vs Leicester City tips and predictions
Both teams to score is placed at 10/11 (1.91), which appears to be a great price considering the visitors’ strong away scoring record.
