CHE vs LEI Dream11 | Dream11 Grand League Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Chelsea look to open their account for the season when they host Leicester City in the Premier League this weekend at Stamford Bridge.

MATCH Info: Premier League
When: August 18, 2019, 09:00 PM
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.


Team News:

Chelsea:

  • Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi remain on the sidelines for the hosts.
  • Andreas Christensen picked up a knock during the UEFA Super Cup defeat by Liverpool and will be assessed before the game.
  • Some good news: Chelsea’s new no-10 Willian and center-back Antonio Rudiger look ready to feature here.
  • Having come from the bench at Old Trafford, both Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante should be ready to start the match at Stamford Bridge.
  • Chelsea boss could name Olivier Giroud as a striker ahead of young Tammy Abraham.

Leicester City:

  • Filip Benkovic is the only injury concern for Leicester City ahead of this match.
  • Other than him, Brendan Rodgers has a fully fit squad available at his disposal.
  • We expect Leicester to name an unchanged XI from the team which drew 0-0 against Wolves.

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.

Last Season:

  • Games: 45
  • Goals: 14
  • Assists: 08

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.

Last Season:

  • Games: 45
  • Goals: 13
  • Assists: 05

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.

Last Season:

  • Games: 27
  • Goals: 05
  • Assists: 04

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.

Last Season:

  • Games: 50
  • Goals: 04
  • Assists: 04

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.

Last Season:

  • Games: 34
  • Goals: 18
  • Assists: 04

Options from Leicester City:

  • James Maddison
  • Ricardo Pereira
  • Youri Tielemans

CHE vs LEI Dream11 Grand League Scenarios:

Leicester City are capable of beating any opponent, but we think Chelsea will do enough to either win or draw the game.

Where Chelsea can dominate?

In the midfield, but more on the wings:

  • With the player like N’Golo Kante, Chelsea have somebody who can absolutely boss this particular area of the field. As Fabinho and Milner.
  • The Frenchman is not only a good defensive player, but the 28-year-old can be pretty astute in the final 3rd.
  • He should be in your Dream11 fantasy team along with Christian Pulisic and Pedro.
  • While Leicester’s midfield do have some world-class talent in Youri Tielemans, Wilfred Ndidi, and James Maddison.
