Frank Lampard has more selection headaches tomorrow as his team play their second match in three days.

After beating Fulham on Saturday, Chelsea now face Leicester City in the league on Tuesday night.

Chelsea are also looking to sign a top class new centre back this summer, find out who is on the shortlist HERE!

N’Golo Kante is out injured with a hamstring issue, so that will be Lampard’s first major decision.

I feel that since Jorginho played on Saturday, that finally Billy Gilmour might get his deserved chance to start in that role.

We could see some of the rotated players from Saturday come back in – players such as Kai Havertz and Kurt Zouma. And I think Reece James might be fit enough to start now.

I feel Callum Hudson-Odoi gets the nod over Pulisic, after the fine form he has been showing lately, and Tammy Abraham comes in for Giroud and ahead of the struggling Timo Werner.

Predicted Xl –

(4-3-3): Mendy, James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell. Gilmour, Mount, Havertz. Hudson-Odoi, Ziyech, Abraham.
