Frank Lampard will have gleaned real positives from Istanbul, even if his first two competitive matches in charge of Chelsea have now technically yielded defeats to Manchester United and Liverpool. Leicester represent a different but distinctly awkward challenge on Sunday; this is the type of game the hosts will feel they must win in terms of a top-four pursuit but City won here last season and, even without Harry Maguire, Brendan Rodgers’ side boast pedigree and a considerable threat on the counter. They will be no pushovers. Dominic Fifield
