Premier League is back in action after the short break and FA Cup clashes played last weekend. The reigning champions will host Leicester City looking to return on the winning ways after sharing spoils with city rivals Arsenal in a four-goal thriller at Emirates Stadium last time out.

It was one of the most interesting Premier League ties in the entire season. It could have easily gone either way, but the Blues were much closer to grabbing the victory at the end. Conte’s men conceded the late equalizer from Hector Bellerin before Bakayoko hit the bar and Morata missed a one-on-one situation with Petr Cech.

The Spanish forward has generally offered a poor performance in the final third failing to convert a host of serious goal-scoring chances in front of the Gunners’ goal. Can he find the right form this Saturday against Leicester City?

Alvaro should get plenty of chances once again if we are to judge by Leicester’s defensive displays on the road in this term of Premier League. The Foxes have allowed two or more goals in three of last four league ties away from King Power Stadium.

Nonetheless, Claude Puel’s men were indeed able to pick up some goals on the other end as well thanks to a fine form of their star men Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. The duo has combined the total of 16 goals so far in the season and they should make a decent threat to Courtois’ goal at Stamford Bridge.
