As expected from Chelsea in the absence of Diego Costa, with Hazard through the middle and Pedro and Willian out wide, but probably quite fluid just as the last time we used this configuration.  No Aké on the bench just yet.

I couldn't possibly tell you what formation Leicester are playing but it very well could be a 3-5-2.
