Trevoh Chalobah replaces the suspended Kalidou Koulibaly as Chelsea prepare to take on Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.

Thomas Tuchel has made only one change to the side that started in the 3-0 capitulation from Leeds United as Chelsea get set to play hosts to Leicester City at Stamford Bridge. Edouard Mendy retains his spot between the sticks, with Kepa Arrizabalaga being his deputy.

Reece James possibly starts as the right centre-back again unless Tuchel has changed the formation to a 4-3-3. In that case Thiago Silva and Trevoh Chalobah, who replaces the suspended Kalidou Koulibaly, will pair up at the heart of the Chelsea defence, with Marc Cucurella starting as the left-back.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek might be the right wing-back again unless there is a change of formation. In that scenario, the English international will be one of the box-to-box midfielders along with Conor Gallagher, with Jorginho, donning the armband for Chelsea, sitting at the base of the midfield unit.

The offensive unit remains unchanged, with Kai Havertz spearheading the Chelsea attack against Leicester City. Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount will accompany Havertz in the final third, with Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech the backup attacking options on the bench.

Manchester United Starting Lineup: Mendy, James, Silva, Chalobah, Cucurella, Gallagher, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Mount, Havertz, Sterling
