Confirmed: Leicester v Chelsea line-ups

Leicester V Cardiff

Leicester host Chelsea in a huge Monday night football clash.

Leicester City are hoping to go back to the top of the Premier League table - but must beat reigning champions Chelsea to do so.

The Blues have been disappointing this season, as shown by their lowly league position.

Going into the game they are in 16th place and sit just one point above the relegation zone.

Leicester were battling for survival last season but this time around have already accrued 32 points.

This has them in third place, and they can end the night in first with a home victory over Chelsea.

There is extra motivation for Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri, who is taking on his former club, and the manager who replaced him at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian has had a dream start back in the Premier League, and no club have had this amount of points since the division was made up of 20 teams and failed to finish inside the top four.
