Brendan Rodgers will be up against one of his former clubs when Chelsea comes to visit on Saturday. Chelsea has been struggling in the league since the arrival of Graham Potter, but their form are rising at the moment with wins vs. Leeds and Dortmund in their last two games.
Leicester need to pick up points and are struggling at the wrong end of the table, with a manager that are looking for answers among his players, but cannot really trust many of them at this point, James Maddison being a key in the process.
With James Maddison in the team Leicester do have a man to call on whenever you need a goal or an assist. We hopefully will see him in the starting line-up, and hopes are that Harvey Barnes also can be in contention.
The key going forward is to get behind the team and support Brendan Rodgers and a negative atmosphere and signs from the terraces talking nonsense about this and that can wait until the summer. The key for now is to stay together, players, managers, staff and fans as we fight on in a battle to survive.
