Claudio Ranieri, 65, fresh off of winning FIFA Coach of the Year, will see what his side can do up against the Chelsea offense. Hopefully, after coaching the Blues for four seasons, he might have a few tricks up his sleeve. Sadly, the Foxes are without three key players going into this match, according to The Sun. Riyad Mahrez, 25, and Daniel Amartey, 22, are taking part in the African Cup of Nations, along with recent Leicester singing, Islam Slimani, 28.
The Pensioners have been hit with a penalty of their own, as John Terry will sit this game out. The 36-year-old captain earned a red card during Chelsea’s FA Cup match with Peterborough. Marco Alonso, 26, is out with a leg injury, but it’s not all bad news. Kurt Zouma, 22, is expected to be back and Nathan Ake, 21, was recalled from his loan to Bournemouth.
With Leicester going 1-out-of-9 against Chelsea, it’s not looking good for the Foxes, especially with Diego Costa, 28, scoring in two of his last three Premier League games against Leicester. It should be a good game, though it might just prove why it’s Chelsea’s turn to top the league’s table.
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers?
