Chelsea vs Leicester: Kick off time today, prediction, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results

Chelsea and Leicester face off this afternoon in what could be a tense atmosphere at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are aggressively pursuing Foxes defender Wesley Fofana, and on Friday evening finally agreed a potential world-record fee with their fourth bid, which has seen the centre-back withdraw from match duties and skip training. It means Fofana will not play today.

But whatever the shape of the two teams, they both need a win. Chelsea were humbled 3-0 by Leeds last time out, while Leicester have just one point to their name after three games.


Date, kick-off time and venue

Chelsea vs Leicester is scheduled for a 3pm BST kick-off today, Saturday, August 27 2022.

Stamford Bridge in London will host the match.
