Leicester City take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday 18 August in their second Premier League game of the 2019-20 season.

Turkey international Caglar Soyuncu informed Turkish-Football that he believes he did enough against Wolves to keep his place in the team.

Soyuncu revealed that he trained with the first-team this week and that head coach Brendan Rodgers praised him in person following his display in the opening game of the season.

The 22-year-old expects to start for the second successive week.

Soyuncu looks like he could replace the void left by Harry Maguire who joined Manchester United on an £80m move.

The former Freiburg man put on an impressive display in the goalless draw against Wolves.

The powerful defender made three tackles, three clearances and was dominant in the air winning five aerial duals.
