Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson spoke ahead of tomorrow’s clash at King Power Stadium.

A game that promise to be spectacular, with both teams fighting for something really important: the Premier League title for Chelsea, the permanence for the Foxes.

Pearson’s side are in a magnificent form – in this moment they won’t be relegated- but he knows that tomorrow night it won’t be an easy game, as he states about Chelsea:

If they play a counter attack game they are very strong. If they play a very offensive game they are very strong,’ the Leicester boss said”

“They have the capabilities of being able to deal with most situations that are thrown at them”

“They are an exceptional team. We expect them to be at their best as I am sure they will expect us to be at our best”

Pearson is concerned about some injuries that can affect his squad for tomorrow’s clash:

“We have picked up some injuries in games, like Nugent and Schlupp. We will have to assess them to see if they are available for this game or the weekend”

“On top of that we have Vardy’s situation having to have injections. We have other knocks. It is not too bad a turnaround getting the players ready for this game, but then of course it becomes the situation of the game being earlier on Saturday having played on a Wednesday”

“Normally our games are played on a Tuesday but that is how it is. It is not a case of making a scene out of it. It is what it is. The considerations we will make will be based on what is right for Leicester City and that is”.
