Ex-Man Utd midfielder names Lookman among three Leicester players who can hurt Chelsea

                Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has named Ademola Lookman among three Leicester City players who can hurt Chelsea in the ongoing Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium.

The Super Eagles hopeful is making his fourth Premier League start of the season against the European champions, with manager Brendan Rodgers deploying the RB Leipzig loanee on the right of a three-man attack also containing Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes.

Lookman’s major assets are speed and dribbling ability so he will be expected to take on the likes of Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger.

Speaking on Premier League Productions just before kickoff, Hargreaves said : “There are a few people in there not playing their natural position, Albrighton and Castagne being them so could put a bit of pressure.”They need to pose a threat and I think with Vardy, Barnes especially and Lookman they have players that when they get the ball they can hurt Chelsea.”

In a 3-4-3 formation, Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi starts in central midfield along with Boubakary Soumaré, while Kelechi Iheanacho is among the nine substitutes on the Leicester City bench.

Chelsea were the better team in the opening fifteen minutes and deservedly took the lead through Rudiger, who flicked his header into the far corner.
