Chelsea v Leicester on Premier League Live

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has said that his side can cause Chelsea 'problems' as the Foxes prepare to do battle with the reigning Premier League champions this weekend.

Alvaro Morata is now under a bit of pressure.

Everton have been struggling for goals and even shots on targets lately, although Big Sam will be hopeful that the signing of striker Cenk Tosun can start to remedy that. He was asked to protect the back four so he wouldn't be able to get forward as much as he did when he played domestic games.

The Foxes beat Huddersfield 3-0 in their latest league encounter, but had gone four matches without a win prior to that, losing three of them.

Responding to Rohr's comments, the Frenchman said: "We don't know about what the national trainer said".

Chelsea have won the Premier League title in two of the past three seasons under Jose Mourinho and then Conte. I reckon the home side will end up playing a lot of their football in and around The Toffees box, and I just have a feeling that this pressure will end up in the visitors conceding a penalty.

"If we just keep concentration on Eden, other players can make the difference also". For example Iheanacho is a young player, arrived this season, and he will stay with us. And with the Norwich replay coming up next week, he has to extend similar considerations to that game as well, which is likely to see a well-rotated squad once again.

But Puel could always see the player's ability when the pair were together at the Metropole.

But Puel said: "That is not an advantage". It is important to have a good balance in the team and have a good game time for the players.

He will be available for the game, there is no problem with Jamie.

Antonio Conte will be without his new signing Ross Barkley, who continues to build up his fitness after taking part in his first training session with the Blues earlier this week.

The Brazilian directly contributed towards 20 goals in as many appearances, and his influence was nearly unrivalled in the squad. If a deal is agreed for Keita in the winter window, he will become the most expensive player in Liverpool's history.
