Vardy and Mahrez can cause Chelsea problems

Lively Leicester should put up a fight

Leicester's Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez
1 of 1

3pm Saturday

Chelsea have kept clean sheets in five of their last six home league games but they could struggle to shut out lively Leicester at Stamford Bridge.

Leicester have failed to score in just two of their 11 away league games this term and while the returning Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are in their ranks they are capable of hurting any defence in the division.

Only the top six have notched more than the free-scoring Foxes this season but they have kept just one clean sheet on the road and Claude Puel has a number of defensive injuries to contend with.

Recommendation
Both teams to score
