Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Chelsea will seek an immediate return to winning ways in the Premier League when they travel to Leicester City on Saturday following the international break.

The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw against Burnley earlier this month, as Matej Vydra cancelled out Kai Havertz's opener in the capital.

Thomas Tuchel's side remain at the top of the pile despite dropping points against the Clarets, as a three-point gap separates them from closest challengers Manchester City and West Ham United.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
