Chelsea predicted lineup vs Leicester - Premier League

Chelsea travel to Leicester City on Saturday afternoon, as the Premier League resumes after the international break.

Thomas Tuchel's side will aim to get back to winning ways having somehow dropped two points to Burnley last time out. That draw at Stamford Bridge, however, spelled the end of a seven-game winning streak in all competitions. The Blues' glorious start to the campaign leaves them sitting top of the Premier League table with a three-point cushion.

Their hosts on Saturday, on the other hand, have disappointed thus far, currently occupying 12th place and hoping for a first win in four. Here's who Tuchel could go with at the King Power Stadium.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Will inevitably start once more for Chelsea | Visionhaus/GettyImages

Edouard Mendy (GK) - Undeniably one of the best goalkeepers in world football at the moment, Mendy's first-choice status is pretty secure.

Trevoh Chalobah (CB) - With Cesar Azplilicueta having played a full 90 minutes for Spain last time out, Tuchel may opt to give him a rest. Having impressed so far this campaign, Chalobah isn't the shoddiest of backups.

Andreas Christensen (CB) - Thiago Silva was in international action later than most of his colleagues - and on a different continent - so it could fall to Christensen to play at the centre of the back line against Leicester.

Antonio Rudiger (CB) - Has missed just one game across the Premier League and Champions League this season and, while he continues this monstrous form, he'll start for Tuchel.

2. Wing-backs & Midfielders

Reece James (RWB) - Talking of monsters, James has been imperious of late. There's no way he can be left out.

N'Golo Kante (CM) - Football's most lovable guy didn't feature for France in their 2-0 win over Finland, meaning he should be fresh to start in the Chelsea midfield.

Jorginho (CM) - Played in both of Italy's draws over the break, but will likely come straight back into the Blues midfield at Leicester.

Ben Chilwell (LWB) - Another Blue in brilliant form, Chilwell has been sensational over the past couple of months and should get a start against his former employers.

3. Forwards

Callum Hudson-Odoi (RW) - The youngster has been fantastic throughout the early stages of this campaign and, having not played over the international break, should be raring to go on Saturday.

Kai Havertz (ST) - The trip to Leicester will likely be too early for Romelu Lukaku to come back into the fold, so Havertz should lead the line again having scored five in his last nine for club and country.

Mason Mount (LW) - Missed out on England duty due to surgery on his wisdom teeth (you've all seen the video) but should be ready to feature this weekend.
