Leicester have shown a marked improvement under Puel and have pulled away from the relegation zone to sit eighth, whilst Chelsea occupy third spot but are 16 points adrift of runaway leaders Manchester City.

At his press conference on Friday, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte left the door open to a summer exit from Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea v Leicester - Saturday's Super 6 starts with a clash between two former Premier League champions at Stamford Bridge and what a good game it promises to be. With Antonio Conte unsure about his future, the players would look to back their manager and earn a much needed victory to raise the dampened spirits.

Shinji Okazaki shot over from close range and Jamie Vardy was narrowly off target with two chances, before Blues keeper Thibaut Courtois made a stunning save to keep out Wilfred Ndidi's header.

The big game of the weekend sees Liverpool host Man City on Sunday afternoon, and I've put up three selections at 9/1, 6/1 and 11/2 for the game in my Big Match Preview right here. It may even surprise you to learnt that game was a win for Leicester City, ending a bad run of form.

Both Manuel Lanzini and Marko Arnautovic caused problems early on, and the visitors went ahead on 27 minutes when home keeper Jonas Lossl played the ball short to Joe Lolley, who dallied and allowed Mark Noble to steal possession and run on to finish. Morata scored six goals in his first six league appearances for Chelsea but has netted only four times in his 13 top flight games since.

But Chelsea soon showed signs of getting to grips with the game, Alvaro Morata pulling a save from Schmeichel after charging in along the byline, while the Dane did well to tip a fierce Fabregas drive over three minutes before half-time. "He's a young player but has all the attributes to become a good player".

There's only one man at Leicester City who can truly petrify the opponent defenders and that's Jamie Vardy.

"No, honestly we didn't speak about him, but I repeat we are talking about a really good player", Conte explained, as quoted by Goal.com.
