Leicester City team news: Drinkwater ready for Chelsea clash

Premier League reigning champions Leicester City face a tricky trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.

Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri confirmed that star midfielder Danny Drinkwater has made a full recovery and that he will be match fit for the clash according to the official club website.

Per the source, Ranieri also revealed that Nampalys Mendy is still facing pain in his ankle and that he is a doubt.

The Foxes players that left on international duty have all returned and are all match fit which will be a boost going into the Saturday game.

Leicester are in for a tough run of games as they will play six times over the next 22 days.

The reigning champions have only managed to pick up eight points in their first seven games but are still well within reach of the top four.

Chelsea meanwhile are seven on 13 points and a victory could take them into the top four depending on the other results.
