The results leaves them unbeaten but only on two points whilst also raising slight concerns about their ability to hold leads, with both the Foxes and the Gunners coming from behind to grab points.

Chelsea meanwhile have been imperious in their start with maximum points on the board already following comfortable wins over newly promoted pair Burnley and Leicester.

The game has some added spice following Roberto Martinez’s decision to sign Samuel Eto’o earlier this week. The Cameroon International spent last season on loan with Chelsea scoring 12 goals and he could come back to haunt his former club this weekend with the “no.5” in line to make his debut.

The player’s age was famously questioned by Jose Mourinho last season and despite leaving the club under a shadow, Eto’o claims he does not have a point to prove on Saturday.

‘The only thing I have to say about Jose is that I want to thank him for giving me my opportunity in English football,’ said Eto’o, who has signed a two-year deal. ‘It is down to him that I have had the chance to play and integrate into the Premier League. That is the end of the matter.’

Romelu Lukaku is another former Chelsea player with a point to prove on Saturday with the Belgian international’s motivations questioned by Mourinho prior to his move to Goodison. The striker is set to form a deadly partnership with Eto’o and he too will be keen to prove a point on Saturday.

The Chelsea links continue with Christian Astu set to watch the game from the sidelines as part of his loan agreement with the Everton while Ross Barkley, Bryan Oviedo, Steven Pienaar and Arouna Kone will all be missing.

Chelsea for their part have a slight worry over the fitness of Diego Costa and his hamstring but the Spanish star is expected to be fit after resuming training meaning the only doubt Mourinho has is over Andre Schurrle (leg injury).
