Antonio Conte has a near full squad at his disposal as he looks to return Chelsea to winning ways following league defeat at Tottenham.
That loss of course ended the teams 13-game winning streak, and Conte will be keen for his side to bounceback against Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
N'Golo Kanté will return to Leicester for the first time since securing a £30 million switch to The Blues during the summer, and Chelsea face a Leicester side in desperate need of points.
The Foxes are just six points from the relegation zone and must get a consistent run of results together if they are to avoid being pulled into the relegation dogfight.

For Chelsea Marcos Alonso is a slight concern due to a leg injury that has troubled him throughout the season. John Terry is suspended for the game following his red card in the FA Cup, but was unlikely to feature even if available.
A key question is whether in-form defender Nathan Ake will start for Chelsea following his recall to the club from Bournemouth.
