We’re closing in on kick-off in the Premier League as the Blues travel to Leicester City for one last game before the international break.
It should be a good game, too, between two sides that will feel as though they can challenge to try and get in amongst the top six this year.
Clearly, then, it is a big game for us and Marco Silva has decided to go bold with his team selection.
Rather excitingly, he’s gone with Richarlison as the central striker today with Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin having to sit on the bench:

It’s perhaps a little strange given than Silva had tipped Tosun to go on a run of goals but, even so, it has got many of our fans excited.
Let’s take a look at the best of what has been said about Silva’s call ahead of today’s game:
