Tammy Abraham a doubt as Reece James returns – Predicted Chelsea team at Leicester City

Among the dismay of transfer deadline day, Chelsea are back in Premier League action tomorrow afternoon when they take on Leicester City.

Both clubs are currently inside the top four, and the Blues are looking to secure their spot over the likes of Manchester United and Sheffield United.

The Blues will be sweating on the fitness of Tammy Abraham, however, with the England international a doubt through an ankle injury.

Abraham had to be helped down the tunnel with an ankle injury following the Arsenal draw, meaning Frank Lampard might have to turn to Michy Batshuayi. However, it will go to the wire.

“He has trained today and felt okay,” Lampard said. “We need to see if there is a reaction because it is a pain injury.

“There is a lot of pain and even in training he has pain. So I am going to look at that one overnight and test him in the morning.

“He did get out there today which is a positive in the longer term.”

Reece James should return from his knee injury, which will be a boost to the Blues going into the match after a few impressive performances.

Lampard will likely go for the midfield three of N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.

Christian Pulisic could be back in action after his injury, however Lampard will likely keep the front line of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Willian, with Batshuayi leading the team.

Predicted Chelsea team: Kepa; James, Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Hudson-Odoi, Batshuayi, Willian.
