Paul Ince is backing Chelsea to continue their strong recent form by beating Leicester 3-1 at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

The Blues have bounced back from their difficult start to the new campaign by securing wins over Tottenham and Everton after their shock opening weekend loss to Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea could be set to welcome Eden Hazard back into the squad after he missed all three of their opening games due to an ankle injury,.

And former Manchester United man Ince feels that the Blues will have too much for the Foxes at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Writing in his column for the Daily Express, Ince said: “This one ain’t gonna be easy. Craig Shakespeare seems to have Leicester going, and after Chelsea’s first result, they seem to have picked it back up.

“Their confidence seems to be back and Alvaro Morata is getting goals, and Eden Hazard played for Belgium in the international break, so things are looking up for them.”

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are also preparing for a return to the Champions League next week after having won the title last season.

The Blues will take on Qarabag at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night in their European curtain-raiser.
