Chelsea travel to the King Power Stadium on Sunday looking to end their run of just one win in their last five games across all competitions.

Meanwhile, Leicester City have lost just once in that period, a 5-1 thrashing to runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

And Blues legend Graeme Le Saux believes Foxes stars Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy will cause Chelsea all sorts of problems this weekend.

Le Saux told Betfair: “Chelsea – another team that needs to win the FA Cup – especially as it seems increasingly like they’re still fairly unlikely to qualify for the Champions League.

“They’re relying on other teams to falter so the FA Cup becomes increasingly important to come out of the season with something to shout about.

“It was a turning point for them in 1997 and it became a base for their subsequent success and they need to channel that on Saturday.

“It was a turning point for them in 1997 and it became a base for their subsequent success and they need to channel that on Saturday.

“Leicester present a tricky test, as a legacy of their league winning season, the likes of Vardy and Mahrez are very much getting back to their best, primarily thanks to Claude Puel.

“There’s a lot of things that could’ve distracted them this year but he’s managed each situation tremendously well.

“In any given fixture, they’re well capable of producing something special and I think Leicester will really enjoy this challenge.

“They’ll be desperate to upset the big boys once again and Chelsea will need to recover quickly – both mentally and physically – from such a big game in midweek.”
