The former midfield superstar is under mounting pressure to deliver results ahead of this midweek batch of Premier League fixtures, with some reports suggesting he could even be sacked should Leicester triumph this evening.

It remains unclear how likely Lampard’s dismissal is, but owner Roman Abramovich is not renowned for his patience when Chelsea aren’t competing at the top level.

Leicester will be in no mood for pleasantries when they line up on their home soil.

Brendan Rodgers has got his team firmly fixed in title contention at the halfway stage with a couple of his main men accelerating into form at the right time.

Leicester v Chelsea team news

Leicester predicted XI: Schmeichel, Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu, Castagne, Ndidi, Tielemans, Justin, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy.

Chelsea predicted XI: Mendy, James, Rudiger, Silva, Chilwell, Kovacic, Jorginho, Mount, Ziyech, Giroud, Pulisic.

Our prediction: Leicester v Chelsea

Leicester were no flash in the pan when they won the league title back in 2016. They have clung onto their status among the elite and it shouldn’t be considered a surprise that they’re flying.

In Jamie Vardy they boast an elite goalscorer. In Harvey Barnes they boast a runner with pace to burn and sharp finish. In James Maddison they boast a technical maestro capable of match-winning moments.

Chelsea are equipped with Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech in those roles, but none of them are firing right now, and that could spell doom for the Blues – and Lampard.

Our prediction: Leicester 2-1 Chelsea
