How should Chelsea line up against Leicester City to begin a new Premier League winning streak?

Chelsea have beaten Leicester City twice already this season, once in the league at home and once in the League Cup away from home, but despite a combined 7-2 scoreline, a trip to the home of the defending Premier League champions remains a tough task.  Their 4-2 beatdown of Manchester City last month should serve as a stark reminder of how not underestimate them.

It will also be Chelsea's first league game since the disappointment of White Hart Lane and falling just short of setting a new Premier League record for consecutive wins.  But, with the distraction of a record-chase now over, the title challenge can be given our full attention.

Conte has a fully healthy squad at his disposal, with the only minor worry the state of Marcos Alonso's possibly worsening leg injury.  But the left wing-back has been a full participant in training, so there's probably no cause for concern.  Conte will have Nathan Aké available for selection for the first time, while Kenedy and Charly Musonda remain listed despite their unlikely involvement.

Choose wisely.
