Puel delighted as Leicester earn Chelsea point

Manchester United look at Vardy

The England forward missed the 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town, as well as the FA Cup stalemate against his former club Fleetwood Town last weekend with a tight groin, but manager Claude Puel has confirmed that he is available for selection against the Blues.

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.

Leicester are in mixed form at present and they probably won't relish the trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon where they have a very poor recent record.

Puel's Leicester take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and the Frenchman is well aware of the need to contain the attacking threat of Hazard.

Since losing to Man City in September, Chelsea have won each of their last seven home Premier League games, shipping just three goals and keeping five clean sheets in that time. But we are still mid-January and this is the Premier League and anything can happen.

Antonio Conte has won 25 of his opening 30 home Premier League games as manager, no boss in the competition has won more of their opening 30.

Chelsea have plenty left to fight for this season despite trailing Premier League leaders Manchester City by a cavernous 16 points, according to midfielder Cesc Fabregas. He also squandered about three or four clear goal scoring chances in the league game versus Arsenal that surely would have seen them collect all three points.

The England worldwide has been in fine form for the Foxes this term, scoring nine Premier League goals to date. But if it were 11 v 11 I think we would have got the win.
