The Premier League football returns after two weeks of international football this weekend. After suffering a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal, Chelsea made sure they bounced back with a comfortable 2-0 win over Hull City at the KCOM Stadium before the international break.

Antonio Conte will be hoping his side can continue their impressive form when they host the Premier League champions on Saturday. The former Juventus manager also cautioned his star striker Diego Costa not to pick up a yellow card, which could result in his suspension for the next league clash against Manchester United.

Leicester City, on the other hand, enter this fixture after settling for a point against Southampton at home. It was a disappointing goalless draw, which came after a 4-1 crushing defeat at the hands of Jose Mourinho's side at Old Trafford. The Foxes will be looking to bounce back when they face the west London club this weekend.
