Manager Jose Mourinho wants Chelsea to play with the same kind of intensity when they take on Leicester City on Wednesday as they close in on their English Premier League title
Leicester: Jose Mourinho expects Leicester to avoid relegation from the Premier League and is taking nothing for granted as his title-chasing side go to the King Power Stadium on Wednesday.
Win at Leicester and Chelsea, who are 10 points clear of Manchester City and Arsenal, can claim the title on Sunday with victory at home to Crystal Palace.
The Foxes will not roll over, though, having won four in a row to climb out of the relegation zone. "I was surprised with their bad position," Mourinho said.
"For me it's a good team, good players. I played them very early in the season at Stamford Bridge (winning 2-0 in August).
"I could immediately feel the quality of the team. I was surprised that they were in a bad position. I'm not surprised they are out of the relegation zone. I will be not surprised when they stay in the division."

"They are playing well, their results are coming," Mourinho added. "Their situation is very good.
"For the quality of their team, I think they are going to survive.
"We are never complacent, we know that they are a good team and they are a difficult opponent."
Chelsea will make a late decision over Diego Costa (hamstring) and Oscar (head knock) and are without Loic Remy (calf).
