Key Battles That Could Decide Saturday's Meeting Between Chelsea and Leicester City

Manchester City are reportedly considering a £50million bid for the centre-back, who joined Leicester from Hull City last June for an undisclosed fee reported to be £17m.

"He trained well this week", Puel said at his press conference on Thursday. "The ambition is not just for us to score but to continue to play after scoring and to always keep good ambition in our play". That is a good thing. Iheanacho is a young player, he signed this season with us and we have to develop him.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has told Foxes forwards Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa that they have to be playing to be taken to the World Cup. Chelsea ran out as 2-1 victors in the corresponding fixture earlier this season with goals from Alvaro Morata and N'Golo Kante. "We have great players also and quality in the squad and a great attitude all the time in training sessions on the pitch".

Ross Barkley is expected to be fit to make his debut following a hamstring injury in Chelsea's FA Cup third round replay with Norwich next Wednesday.

Wolves are the Man City of the Championship this season so I like them to see off Barnsley at Oakwell, and Bradford should knock up a comfortable win at home against Northampton.

Riyad Mahrez, a reported target for Liverpool and Arsenal, continues to be linked with a transfer away from Leicester, but Puel says the winger is happy at the club. They lost to Watford, who have won once in a blue moon, and with Chelsea needing a win to consolidate their position in the top four, I fear for the Foxes. "It was not possible to move him with some kicks because he was so strong", said Puel.

Eden Hazard has also recovered from a knock to his calf that saw him sit out the third round FA Cup tie completely, but he played against the Gunners.

"Last week, for example, he was said to be signing for another club - and all this speculation".
