A stuttering Chelsea side will be aiming to get their Premier League campaign back on track when they visit Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.
The Foxes are once again in the thick of the battle for the top four race, with leaders Manchester United not too far ahead of them either.
Currently on a five-game unbeaten run in the top-flight, Brendan Rodgers’ side come into this fixture on the back of a hard-fought win over Southampton.
The Blues, on the other hand, have tailed off dramatically following a strong start to their Premier League campaign.
A part of the leading pack in the competition not too long ago, Frank Lampard and his men have been on a free fall since the middle of December.
Indeed, in the past month or so, Chelsea have won just two of their seven league games, one of those coming this past weekend versus Fulham.
The corresponding fixture last season was an engrossing affair that ended in a 2-2 draw between Leicester and Chelsea, with Harvey Barnes, Ben Chilwell and Antonio Rudiger the goalscorers.
Leicester City XI (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel, Justin, Fofana, Evans, Castagne, Ndidi, Tielemans, Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy
Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Mendy, James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell, Kovacic, Jorginho, Mount, Ziyech, Abraham, Pulisic
Kick off is at 21:15 (GMT +1).
