Transfer deadline day has been and gone!
Frank Lampard had been keen to add to his squad in January, with a striker a priority in order to take the burden off of Tammy Abraham’s shoulders.
However, the Blues did not complete a single incoming deal in the window, much to the frustration of the Chelsea boss and fans.
With Chelsea travelling to Leicester in the early kick off today, there are no new faces in the squad for the game – but how will they line up?

Here is the latest news from Stamford Bridge.
Barren transfer window
No new signings in January.
Makes you wonder what the point was in appealing the ban FIFA placed on them.
But what does it mean in regards to the summer transfer window? We know Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho are among Lampard’s top targets at the end of the season – will he have the money to get those deals done?
Lampard says he is not frustrated about the lack of signings- though he didn’t exactly cut the calmest figure in his pre-match press conference – the shortest of his reign as Chelsea manager so far.
Predicted team for Leicester
Could Tammy Abraham be back in the Chelsea team to face third-placed Leicester today?
It’s doubtful. It looks like Abraham might be in the squad for the trip to the King Power Stadium, but starting the match is another matter.
And who do the fans want to see take the field?
It could be a vital game in the search for a top four place in the Premier League this season, and Lampard made a worrying admission ahead of the game.
Olivier Giroud left in limbo
Despite hopeful contact from Spurs, Newcastle and Aston Villa – not to mention Antonio Conte’s Inter – in the January transfer window, Olivier Giroud remains a Chelsea player.
How much of a role will the striker have to play in…
