Eden Hazard is named among the substitutes for Chelsea's trip to Leicester City.

Eden Hazard has been named among the substitutes for Chelsea's trip to Leicester City this afternoon.

The attacker has yet to feature for the Blues this season due to an ankle injury but played for Belgium over the international break and is in line to return for his club this afternoon.

Antonio Conte makes one change following the 2-0 victory over Everton before the international break, bringing in Tiemoue Bakayoko for Willian alongside Alvaro Morata and Pedro up front.

Victor Moses, N'Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas and Marcos Alonso make up the midfield, while Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger are in the back three ahead of Thibaut Courtois between the sticks.

Meanwhile, Danny Drinkwater is named on the bench against his old club following his deadline-day switch and is joined among the subs by fellow new arrival Davide Zappacosta.

The Foxes also make one change in the wake of their 2-0 defeat to Manchester United last time out, with Shinji Okazaki rested and Islam Slimani brought in as partner for Jamie Vardy up front.

Riyad Mahrez starts for Craig Shakespeare's side after failing to secure a deadline-day exit from the club, with Wilfred Ndidi, Matty James and Marc Albrighton also keeping their places in the XI.

Kasper Schmeichel remains on patrol between the posts, while skipper Wes Morgan is joined in the back four by Danny Simpson, Harry Maguire and Christian Fuchs.

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs; Mahrez, Ndidi, James, Albrighton; Slimani, Vardy
Subs: Chilwell, Gray, Iheanacho, King, Hamer, Amartey, Ulloa

Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Pedro, Bakayoko, Morata
Subs: Caballero, Drinkwater, Hazard, Zappacosta, Willian, Batshuayi, Christensen
