Did you know?

Mason Mount has both scored and assisted in six different Premier League matches this season, the most any Chelsea player has done so in a single campaign. Only two English players have ever scored and assisted in seven different matches within a Premier League season: Alan Shearer in 1994/95 and Harry Kane in 2020/21.

Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy has scored six goals in his last six Premier League starts, netting a brace in each of his last two. He’s two goals away from becoming the first player to score 100 Premier League goals while over the age of 30.

Following their 3-0 victory against Leicester earlier this season, Chelsea are looking to complete their first league double over the Foxes since 2016/17, when they won 3-0 home and away en route to winning the title.

Leicester have scored eight goals in their last two Premier League matches (3-0 v Norwich, 5-1 v Watford), one more than they had in their previous seven matches combined. The Foxes are looking to score three or more goals in three consecutive Premier League matches for the fourth time, previously doing so in March 1997, March 2017 and September 2020.
