Chelsea is winless in their last five away matches, and today they’ll head to King Power Stadium to give Leicester City their best shot. The Foxes are 17 points better in the table, and can reclaim the top spot from Arsenal with a win today.
Despite their early struggles, the season is not lost to Jose Mourinho. The Chelsea boss spoke last week about his team’s finish, and surprised some with his confidence.
“Before we lost three points against Bournemouth I was absolutely convinced about finishing fourth in the table and I was convinced about a great December for us. While it’s mathematically possible we have to try.”
Unlike many of the top teams in the BPL right now, Leicester’s squad is mostly healthy. They’re just waiting on Ritchie de Laet, who won’t return in 2015 and Matty James, who is recovering from a long-term knee injury.
For Chelsea, Radamel Falcao is almost back to form and could even be included as a substitute for today’s fixture.
