How to Watch Chelsea vs. Leicester City

Mahrez has been linked with a move to Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea in the January transfer window and the Algerian proved a tough test for Marcos Alonso and Antonio Rudiger. The good news is that Jamie Vardy and Christian Fuchs could be available after missing time through injury and illness, but it's unlikely that Adrien Silva will play, after appearing for the u23 side last night.

City held on for a point at the end after the sending off of Ben Chilwell.

The Foxes had a great start to the game but couldn't capitalise on their chances.

Leicester climbed up the table when Claude Puel came in but their progress has stalled a little, especially after a 3-0 loss at home to Crystal Palace but Leicester did beat Huddersfield 3-0 in their last league game.

Leicester continued to put pressure on a sleeping Chelsea defence as the first half progressed, with Vardy finding it easy to burst through the Blues backline and into a risky area.

Japanese striker Shinji Okazaki nearly gifted Leicester the flawless start eight minutes in when the attacker was teed up by Chilwell down the left win from close range, but despite being six-yards from goal, the former Mainz player sliced his shot high over the bar. "It was a good game".

4 injured in multiple strong earthquakes in Iran
A magnitude 4.7 quake hit western Iran on Wednesday evening, according to Mizan, the official website of the Iranian judiciary. In November, a major 7.3 magnitude quake struck the same region, killing over 530 people and injuring thousands in Iran alone.

And with Chelsea's lack of squad depth, Norwich may fancy their chances of cup shock on Wednesday.

Antonio Conte's men won the reverse fixture at the King Power Stadium 2-1 back in September but this is a very different Foxes side and they will be confident of causing an upset at Stamford Bridge.

"He's a young player but has all the attributes to become a good player".

"Obviously we all feel a little bit exhausted, previous year we went from week to week, but now we have already played a lot of games".

Chelsea are expected to field a full-strength side against Leicester. Captain Gary Cahill was rested for the midweek Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg with Arsenal and could return in defence. Andreas Christensen was the man picked to replace him ahead of David Luiz, and after the match Chelsea's head coach dismissed a question about why he had not used the Brazilian.

Newcastle United stretched their winless home run in the Premier League to seven games and continued to slide towards the relegation zone after a 1-1 draw with bottom team Swansea City.
