The magic number is six.  The number of games left is five.  Anticipation is high.  Win today and we can clinch the title on Sunday, in front of the Stamford Bridge faithful.

UP THE BLUES!

Leicester City starting lineup (3-5-2):
Kasper Schmeichel | Wes Morgan, Robert Huth, Marcin Wasilewski | Paul Konchesky, Esteban Cambiasso, Danny Drinkwater, Andy King, Marc Albrighton | Leonardo Ulloa, Jamie Vardy

Substitutes from: Mark Schwarzer, Ritchie De Laet, Dean Hammond, Matty James, Riyad Mahrez, Chris Wood, Andrej Kramaric

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Nemanja Matic, Ramires | Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, Willian | Didier Drogba

Substitutes from: Thibaut Courtois, Filipe Luis, Kurt Zouma, Nathan Ake, Mikel, Oscar, Juan Cuadrado

Looks like Courtois's hip injury was big enough to relegate him to the bench, so Cech starts for the first time since the League Cup final.  Oscar's also on the bench after suffering a (possible?) concussion on Sunday, he's replaced by Ramires with Fabregas moving up to the no.10 spot.  Drogba starts, as expected, with no substitute strikers on the bench at all.  Nathan Ake is back on the bench though, having recently come back from his loan at Reading.

Let's go!
