New Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will be hoping to record his first win in charge of The Blues when Leicester City are the visitors to Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues lost heavily at Manchester United last weekend before losing the UEFA Super Cup to Liverpool in midweek.

Danish defender Andreas Christensen is the biggest doubt for The Blues ahead of the match. The player picked up a knock during the UEFA Super Cup match in Istanbul. Winger Callum Hudson-Odoi remains sidelined with his Achilles injury.

Chelsea could welcome back defender Antonio Rudiger and forward Willian following their respective injury problems.

Leicester City arrive at Stamford Bridge without a goal in any of their last three English Premier League matches. The Foxes started their campaign with a goalless draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the King Power Stadium last weekend.

Manager Brendan Rodgers will again be without defender Filip Benkovic who has an ankle injury. The Foxes boss otherwise has a fully fit squad. Summer signing Dennis Praet is being tipped for his Leicester City debut at The Bridge.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 4.30pm on Sunday afternoon and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
