Chelsea return to Premier League action after a long international break and their next opponents are the dangerous Leicester.

Thomas Tuchel's side are missing Mateo Kovacic and Romelu Lukaku, while Thiago Silva is also set to not feature.

Mason Mount has returned from injury though, and Christian Pulisic has been declared good to go.

Having said that, here's a look at some options for how Thomas Tuchel can put his side out.

Option 1: Hudson-Odoi to stay

Callum Hudson-Odoi has been quite good since getting a run in the side in his favoured attacking position.

His dynamism could come in handy for Chelsea as scoring against Leicester is of great importance.

A midfield of Jorginho and Kante will allow a fluid front 3 for the Blues, making Kai Havertz and Mason Mount the ideal partners for this.

Mendy; Christensen, Chalobah, Rudiger; James, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Havertz

Option 2: Minimal rotation

Chelsea need a win, so the majority of their best players must play against Leicester, but maybe a certain attacker could make his return.

Timo Werner could come in and immediately offer pace and movement that might help open up the Leicester defence alongside Christian Pulisic.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek could start in midfield to provide some added dynamism to the attack.
