After a 3rd-place finish last season, Chelsea replaced manager Maurizio Sarri — who departed for perennial Italian champions Juventus — with their own legendary player, and Chelsea's all-time leading goal scorer (211), Frank Lampard. But in only his second season as a manager and first in the top flight, Lampard is off to a slow start, as Chelsea absorbed a 4-0 drubbing from Manchester United in the Premier League opener, per CBS Sports, followed by a penalty shootout defeat to Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup. A resurgent Leicester FC side under manager Brendan Rodgers could offer another difficult obstacle, in a match that will stream live Sunday.

So far, American international Christian Pulisic — touted as the best United States player ever to compete in Europe — has been unable to fill the gap left by Eden Hazard's move to Real Madrid, as Newsweek reported. Pulisic did not come on until the second half of the Manchester United debacle, but started the Super Cup game and managed to collect an assist on Olivier Giroux's opening goal for Chelsea.
Last season, the Foxes handed Chelsea their first home defeat in the corresponding fixture, with a goal by Jamie Vardy enough to send Leicester past the Blues, according to the BBC. That was one of only five wins Leicester has ever achieved at Chelsea, suffering 33 losses and 12 draws.
The match will be Lampard's home debut as Chelsea's head coach, and he will be under pressure to lead his team to the full three-point haul.
