  • Premier League, GW2

Leicester, meanwhile, struggled to create chances against Wolves.


Chelsea have won their opening home league match of the season in 14 of the last 16 seasons, with their only defeat coming as reigning champions in 2017/18 against Burnley.

Team News:

Antonio Rudiger and Willian (both knee) in contention for the Leicester match. Callum Hudson-Odoi (Achilles) has been training while Reece James is progressing from an ankle injury, but neither are ready to return.

Leicester have no fresh injury concerns.
