Chelsea vs Leicester – Team News

Chelsea face Leicester at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

It’s a cup game, so some changes were to be expected. But largely, Mauricio Pochettino has kept this team as strong as he can.

Robert Sanchez gets a chance in goal, but ahead of him it’s the same back 4 that played on Monday night.

The midfield sees Enzo Fernandez suspended, so as we suspected, Conor Gallagher drops deeper to play alongside Moises Caicedo and Cole Palmer moves centrally into Gallagher’s old place.

That creates a spot out wide, and it looks like Raheem Sterling will slide over to the right hand side with Mykhailo Mudryk coming into the team on the right. Nicolas Jackson is looking to keep up his good form up top.

It’s a strong team – now we need a strong performance.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Leicester (kick off at 12:45 GMT)
