Frank Lampard’s Chelsea takes on Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City live in the second week of the Premier League as both teams look to secure their first win of the season.
Chelsea have had a tough start to their campaign after suffering a 4-0 defeat to Manchester United at the Old Trafford in the first game of the season, followed by a UEFA Super Cup loss against Liverpool in Besiktas on penalties.
This will be Frank Lampard’s first competitive game at the Stamford Bridge as the Chelsea manager and the former Blues midfielder will like to make a good first impression in front of the home crowd.
While N’Golo Kante started and completed the 120 minutes against Liverpool, the Frenchman could start on the bench due to fatigue issues. Willian and Antonio Rudiger are also expected to make an appearance from the bench.
Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City played a scoreless draw against Wolves last week, and the visitors will like to cause a major upset by knicking away 3 points against the vulnerable home side.
