Leicester City have kept only one Premier League clean sheet against Chelsea in 11 matches. That was when Pegguy Arphexad kept the Blues at bay in February 1998.

Jamie Vardy has scored 10 goals in 16 PL matches since Craig Shakespeare's frst match as manager on 27 February 2017. Only Harry Kane (12) and Romelu Lukaku (11) have netted more during that time.

Chelsea have not won away from home in the month of September in any of their previous four PL seasons (W0 D4 L3).

Cesc Fabregas has been involved in six goals in four starts against Leicester for Chelsea in all competitions, the most he has been involved in versus one team during his time at Stamford Bridge.

What the managers say 

Craig Shakespeare: "Alvaro Morata is growing into the role. In terms of their last two games, you saw their result against Everton. You can see they will be there or thereabouts."
