The international break is over and the English Premier League with adrenaline pumping among football diehards. Players travel back to their respective teams as they hope for successful matchdays ahead.
Chelsea FC travels to King Power Stadium on Saturday for matchday 12 at lunch hour. Thomas Tuchel's side was held in a 1-1 draw before international break and will hope to bounce back to their winning ways on Saturday afternoon.
The blues face Leicester who are winless in their previous three games having drawn two and lost one. The Foxes will hope to revive their quest for top four as they are already seven points adrift of fourth place.
The league leaders have only won one of their last four away trips to Leicester but will be considered favourites here. Leicester could be without their midfield maestro Youri Tielemans who pulled out of the Belgium squad with a calf injury.
Chelsea fans should have some smiling faces following the recovery of Romelu Lukaku who was evidently missed against the draw against Burnley FC. The Belgian has stepped up his recovery and may make the matchday squad on Saturday.
Mason Mount missed international duty after dental surgery but is expected to be fine in time for the mouth-watering fixture at the King Power while Timo looks set to miss out.
