Jamie Vardy returns to the Leicester City lineup for this afternoon's trip to Chelsea.

Jamie Vardy returns to the Leicester City lineup for this afternoon's trip to Chelsea.

The attacker, who is back having missed two games with a groin problem, marks one of three changes from the side that beat Huddersfield Town on New Year's Day.

Ben Chilwell and Aleksandar Dragovic also come into the XI, while Islam Slimani and Christian Fuchs drop to the bench and Wes Morgan is out entirely through injury.

For the hosts, Antonio Conte makes one change to the contingent that started the Blues' last league game - a 2-2 draw with Arsenal - as Antonio Rudiger comes in for the benched Andreas Christensen.

Captain Gary Cahill, who sat out the midweek EFL Cup semi-final first leg against Arsenal - also a draw - is brought back into the lineup.

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

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Amartey, Dragovic, Maguire, Chilwell; Mahrez, James, Ndidi, Albrighton; Okazaki; Vardy
Subs: Hamer, Benalouane, Fuchs, Iborra, Gray, Iheanacho, Slimani
