    CHE vs LEI Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups


    Chelsea showed two different sides to their game in the first two matches they played under their new manager and legend Frank Lampard.

    If the Blues were totally run over by a belligerent Manchester United at Old Trafford in the first Premier League game of the season, Liverpool faced a totally different opponent in Istanbul, or perhaps, the game showed what we can expect from Lampard’s Chelsea this season.

    A team, willing to press, players more likely to move into different positions, creating spaces, and hard to mark by the defenders.

    Leicester City, meanwhile, didn’t start the season as per expectations, for not only they drew 0-0 at home against Wolves but were lucky in some regards to come away with one point, if we consider the overall proceedings of the game.

    Chelsea Team News:

    • Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are both out with long-term injuries. The duo won’t be featuring for Chelsea anytime soon.
    • The Blues will also assess centre-back Andreas Christensen who hobbled off the pitch during the Super Cup defeat by Liverpool.
    • A piece of good news for the Chelsea fans – their new no-10, Willian and centre-back Antonio Rudiger are both nearing full fitness and ould be involved here.

    Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

    • Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante both were named on the bench at Old Trafford. But the duo was the bright spark for Chelsea in Istanbul and we expect both of them to start the match here.
    • Olivier Giroud is expected to start the game ahead of Tammy Abraham.
    • Lampard’s team selection will hover around who is more fit for the clash. Considering Mason Mount played fewer minutes in Istanbul than Matteo Kovacic, he may start the game at Stamford Bridge.

    Chelsea Probable XI:

    Kepa Arrizabalaga (GK), Emerson, Zouma, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Pedro, Mount, Pulisic, Giroud

    Leicester City FC Team News:

    • Leicester defender Filip Benkovic will miss the game due to an ankle problem.
    • But in terms of the fresh injury concerns, Brendan Rodgers has a fully fit squad available at his disposal.

    Possible ins or outs of this game:

    • We expect Leicester to name an unchanged XI from the team which drew 0-0 against Wolves.

    Leicester City Probable XI:

    Schmeichel (GK), Chilwell, Evans, Soyuncu, Pereira, Hamza Choudhury, Ndidi, Tielemans, Ayoze Perez, Maddison, Vardy

    Potential Game Changers, and total Dream11 points earned in the tournament:

    • Jamie Vardy
    • Olivier Giroud
    • Pedro
    • Christian Pulisic
    • N’Golo Kante
    • James Maddison
    • Ayoze Perez

    Likely to score:

    • For Chelsea: Olivier Giroud, Christian Pulisic, Pedro
    • For Leicester City: Jamie Vardy, Ayoze Perez, James Maddison

    Captain and Vice-Captain options:

    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

    More options from Leicester City:

    • James Maddison
    • Ricardo Pereira
    • Youri Tielemans

    Suggested combination:

    CHE vs LEI Dream11 potential winner:
    Chelsea are at home and will start the match as clear favourites.
