Leicester to attack Chelsea - Pearson

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson has vowed not to 'park the bus' against Chelsea on Saturday as he relishes testing his side against Jose Mourinho's title favourites.

Chelsea at Stamford Bridge speaks for itself. Their record there is very good but we have to think of this as something of a bonus.

Not many people give us much hope but we have a strong resolve. If we can be an awkward customer I'll be happy. But we have some good footballers.

We may be need a bit of time for our players to dictate the tempo a bit better. There are a lot of counter-attacking sides in the Premier League.

I don't want us to just soak pressure. We need to give each other enough options to maximise our offensive players. We have some threats.

– Nigel Pearson
