Jamie Vardy: Chelsea stars Danny Drinkwater and N’Golo Kante are my enemies this weekend

Leicester host Chelsea on Saturday afternoon, with the Blues pair returning to the King Power Stadium.

Kante left the Foxes following their title winning campaign, while Drinkwater quit Leicester on deadline day for a move to west London.

And England international Vardy says the Chelsea pair will be his enemies during the game on Saturday, adding things will return to normal after the clash.

When asked if he was looking forward to playing against Drinkwater and Kante, Vardy told Sky Sports News: “Yeah it would be good to see them again but obviously come kick-off time they’re enemies.

“That’s how it is.

“As soon as the full-time whistle goes we’ll be back to talking again.”

Speaking about his move to Chelsea last week, Drinkwater revealed he’s excited to play with Kante again.

“I played with N’Golo for a season and there was not really a game I didn’t enjoy playing next to him,” Drinkwater told Chelsea’s official website.

“I am looking forward hopefully to carrying on where we left off.

“I think we hit it off from the first game and after that we did not really lose.

“He is a top lad, the most down-to-earth person you will meet.

“I can’t see him changing much and I am looking forward to meeting him again.”

Diego Costa Chelsea return: Blues dressing room believe star close to comeback.

Costa has been in exile since being told he’s not wanted by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

Conte ditched the Spain international via a text message over the summer, telling him he’s not in his plans for this season despite his red-hot campaign as the Blues won the Premier League title.

Costa responded by heading back to his native Brazil and refusing to return.

He’s been fined by Chelsea for failing to head back to London and train.

But it’s now claimed he could be set to end his strike.

The Telegraph report the Chelsea squad believe Costa is close to ending his stand-off with the club.

It’s said Costa is giving ‘serious consideration’ to returning to training at the Blues’ Cobham HQ.

There he’ll train with the club’s U23 side, rather than Antonio Conte’s senior squad.

Costa has insisted he only wants to join Atletico Madrid – but no fee was agreed for his services in the summer.

Atletico were under no immediate pressure to sign the Chelsea star, with the club under a transfer embargo until January.

Costa could yet move to the La Liga side in January, but will want to be in training and fit so he can hit the ground running.
