Leicester City vs Chelsea
Chelsea hope for a three consecutive wins as they face Brendan Rodgers side. However, Graham Potter has revealed Reece James will miss Saturday’s game due to illness, while Raheem Sterling is a doubt.
Potter has confirmed that this fixture comes too soon for N’Golo Kante and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who has a back problem.
“He still needs some more time,” he said of the former Leicester midfielder. “We’re aiming more towards Everton but unfortunately not tomorrow.”
“Reece has been ill and hasn’t trained today, so he won’t make the game tomorrow,” he said.
“Raheem had a little feeling of tightness in his hamstring, so he’s looking doubtful for tomorrow as well.”
