Chelsea will look to maintain their grip on top spot in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon when they travel to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester.
Thomas Tuchel’s men are unbeaten on the road this season, recording four wins and a draw away from Stamford Bridge and the European champions will fancy their chances against a Leicester side that have been shipping plenty of goals.

Leicester vs Chelsea preview
Even with key players missing Chelsea have been able to grind out results in recent weeks and their strength in depth has served them extremely well.
Defensively, the Blues remain extremely solid and if they can continue to keep things tight at the back they only need to take one of the chances they create in a game to claim a victory.
The visitors on Saturday will feel confident of scoring with Leicester having failed to keep a clean sheet since the opening day of the Premier League season.
Indeed, only four sides have conceded more goals than the Foxes this term and a solid Chelsea side should be able to record another success in the Midlands this weekend.
Leicester vs Chelsea tips & predictions
Chelsea to win at 3/4 (1.75) looks like a healthy enough price for the Premier League leaders and European champions against a side with an extremely poor defensive record.
