Conte To Make 9 Changes: Predicted Chelsea XI To Face Leicester

The Nigeria global has arguably been the player to benefit most from Conte's tactical changes this term, with the Italian guiding the Blues to a 13-game winning run in the Premier League after switching to a 3-4-3.

The 20-year-old has been strongly linked with a loan move to the Championship to gain some much-needed experience but it now appears Loftus-Cheek will not be leaving Stamford Bridge.

However, it took four years, three loan moves and Conte's arrival for Moses to make his breakthrough at Chelsea and he credits the Italian's tactical switch, as well as his physical conditioning, for getting the best out of him this season.

The odds on Ranieri being the Premier League's next managerial casualty are now 25/1 on SkyBet, with Conte the least likely at 150/1 along with Tottenham Hotspur's Mauricio Pochettino and Liverpool's Juergen Klopp.

Despite winning the league last season, Claudio Ranieri's Premier League win percentage was better at Chelsea (52%) than it now is at Leicester City (48%).

"We are working a lot with him and also the other players to improve this situation".

He is also hoping for good performances from Ahmed Musa and Wilfred Ndidi, who gave a good account of themselves in the FA Cup win against Everton last weekend.

The attacking midfielder has failed to reproduce his breath-taking form from last season but is still the club's third highest scorer and will place even more of a burden on Jamie Vardy. I repeat: He's a young player.

"In our first match without Mahrez and Slimani we won and we have to show the same attitude and strength against Chelsea". In the last month he has changed.
