Leicester City hopes to jumpstart its season by halting Chelsea’s title charge on Saturday when the Premier League returns to the King Power Stadium (start time 7:30am ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).

The Foxes saw a two-match win streak turn to a two-match winless run before the break, and beating the table-topping Blues would send a serious message to the PL.

Chelsea’s coming off a draw but still leads second-place Man City and third-place West Ham by three points. The Blues’ 26 points are impressive, and so are the paltry four goals they’ve conceded en route to the PL’s best goal differential through 11 matches.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Leicester vs Chelsea.

Leicester City team news, injuries, lineup

Wesley Fofana is still out, as are Ryan Bertrand and James Justin. Marc Albrighton could return for the Foxes and Youri Tielemans’ status is also unknown.

Chelsea team news, injuries, lineup

Chelsea fans are waiting with baited breath to see if Romelu Lukaku, TImo Werner, and Marcos Alonso are fit to return, while Mateo Kovacic is out. Christian Pulisic wasn’t fit to start either of the USMNT’s World Cup qualifiers, but perhaps he’s being built up for Chelsea duty.

Odds and ends (full odds provided by our partner, PointsBet)

Chelsea is a favorite to win to the tune of -130, while a draw pays +260. The payout is +350 if Leicester City claims all three points.

Prediction

Anything can happen coming out of an international break, but Thomas Tuchel’s men are well-equipped to deal with the challenge of a trip to Brendan Rodgers and Co. Let’s hope for a Christian Pulisic start, but either way we expect something like Leicester 1-3 Chelsea.
