Leicester was the stage for the final domestic act of Maurizio Sarri’s time as Chelsea manager so it is only right they should be the visitors for Frank Lampard’s second coming on Sunday.

Lampard may have endured a difficult start as Chelsea head coach after an agonising penalty shoot-out defeat to Liverpool in Wednesday’s Uefa Super Cup, coming four days after losing 4-0 at Manchester United, but nothing could dampen spirits around Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Chelsea struggled to break Leicester down in the corresponding fixture last season, showing surprising paralysis when falling behind to Jamie Vardy’s 51st-minute strike — Leicester’s first victory at Stamford Bridge since 2000.

Lampard will hope his arrival can generate an environment that extracts the best from players needing a lift after their exertions in Istanbul.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will find a different dynamic 99 days on.

That match showed how toothless the Blues could look without Hazard, a prospect that feels slightly less daunting after the Super Cup.
