Leicester vs Chelsea: Blues go up against struggling Foxes as they look to build on huge Champions League win


CHELSEA return to Premier League action with a trip to Leicester – and Graham Potter will be feeling a little less pressure than recent weeks.

The Blues dug deep to qualify for the Champions League quarter-final at the expense of Borussia Dortmund.

And it was a result that pressure off Graham Potter’s shoulders.

However, Chelsea are embarrassingly 29 points behind league leaders Arsenal – making them closer to the foot of the table.

But the West London outfit still have an outside chance of securing a top four spot and they’ll be confident of making up some ground by taking on out-of-form Leicester.

When is the Leicester vs Chelsea?

Leicester’s Premier League encounter against Chelsea will take place on Saturday, March 11.

It is scheduled to get underway at 3pm UK time.

King Power Stadium is the allocated arena for this huge contest and it can host approximately 32,261 supporters.
