Where: Stamford Bridge
CHE vs LEI Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Frank Lampard may have lost twice in as many games as a Chelsea manager, but the Blues had a lot of positives to take from their UEFA Super Cup defeat to Liverpool.
The match in Istanbul could be a blueprint of what we can expect from Lampard’s team this season.
Firm in defense, good positioning in the midfield and players not shying away from cutting through the opponents’ backline.
For Leicester, the sky is the limit. Though emulating the heroics of the 2015-16 season is a reality too far-fetched, but the season will be a success if Brendan Rodgers manages to guide the team into the top six.
CHE vs LEI Dream11 Grand League Picks for Captains & Vice-Captains:
Olivier Giroud: His hold up play and the one-touch football in or around the final 3rd, can cause any defensive line a sleepwalking moment.
Liverpool were caught a few times by his intelligent runs and play, with some last gasp interceptions and the offside flags coming to the Reds rescue.
Pedro: The Barcelona alumni has started the season with a bang, easily the Chelsea’s best player after the first two games.
Goals, assists, passing, dribbling, he seems to have everything.
Christian Pulisic: Watch out for him. This is just the start for this talented American. Chelsea’s fans are already swooning over him, and it’s not more out of their love for their own players, but more out of what they saw in the first two matches.
N’Golo Kante: Was not at 100% fit in Istanbul, but still managed to give Liverpool’s midfield players some nervy moments. He was simply exceptional. This is just the start.
Jamie Vardy: The Old Jamie Vardy is still as lethal as he was three years ago. The 32-year-old will be a threat for the Blues’ backline, for his runs which, most of the times, are timely.
