Three things to look out for during Chelsea vs Leicester City

Chelsea entertain champions Leicester City in the early kick-off on Saturday, in the hopes of continuing off from their good win over Hull City last time out.

Antonio Conte’s side will be looking to continue on a winning run after damaging defeats to both Liverpool and Arsenal in recent times, and the manager will be encouraged by what he saw in the last game.

Meanwhile, Leicester will hope that, following the international break, they can put together a good run of form following their last result, a 0-0 draw with Southampton.

Here’s three things to look out for during the fixture:

Another chance for Conte to play three-at-the-back

Unless Conte was merely using three-at-the-back to out-tactic Hull City, there’s every possibility that this formation will be continued again this week. With the pace of Jamie Vardy up-front for the Foxes, this will be a good test for the likes of Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta to see if they can handle the change of formation. It will be interesting to see whether the impressive Victor Moses gets another bow, or if he will once again be cast aside in favour of a more experienced and trusted individual.

After a good performance against Hull, it would be doubtful to assume that Conte will change much, so this should be another occasion to witness the new Chelsea revolution.
