How Chelsea could line up against Leicester City

Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Chelsea could line up for Saturday's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been boosted by the returns of two key players for Saturday's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Romelu Lukaku has made his return to training after shaking off an ankle issue but will not be passed fit, while Mason Mount recently had his wisdom teeth taken out and is in contention to feature.

However, with a crucial Champions League clash versus Juventus to come, Tuchel may be reluctant to field Mount from the off, and Timo Werner is still a doubt while Mateo Kovacic is definitely out.

Cesar Azpilicueta will eye a recall to the backline alongside Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger, with Reece James and Ben Chilwell continuing out wide despite Marcos Alonso's return from an ankle knock.

N'Golo Kante and Jorginho are expected to hold their places in the engine room with Kovacic sidelined, while Mount should be deemed fit enough to feature alongside Callum Hudson-Odoi in the final third.

With Lukaku not passed fit for this contest, Kai Havertz ought to spearhead the attack after his well-taken header to open the scoring against Burnley last time out.

Chelsea possible starting lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Hudson-Odoi, Mount; Havertz
