Premier League champions Leicester City host league leaders Chelsea on Saturday (5.30pm kick-off) as both sides look to back up their FA Cup victories with three points in the league.
Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes won 2-1 at Everton in the third round last weekend to set up a last 32 clash with Midlands rivals Derby, but their attentions will turn to improving their Premier League position after a testing defence of their title thus far.
Ranieri’s side are 15th in the table having won just five of their 20 league games, yet all five of those victories have come at the King Power Stadium, where they have taken 18 of their 21 points accumulated in the league this season.
However, they come up against the side with the best away record in the form of Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, who got back to winning ways by beating Peterborough 4-1 in the FA Cup last weekend.
Prior to that, the Blues had seen their 13 match winning streak ended by Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham, a result which gave every side in the top six renewed hope that they could catch Conte’s men at the top.
Nonetheless, Chelsea are still in a great position to regain the title come May, and three points at the King Power Stadium what put them right back on track.
