'He might get stick for 90 minutes': Chelsea's Drinkwater warned over Leicester fans

Danny Drinkwater could make his Chelsea debut at Leicester on Saturday, and former teammate Marc Albrighton has said he can expect a hostile reception.

Following a deadline-day £35 million swoop for Danny Drinkwater, Chelsea could travel to the King Power Stadium and line up with the Foxes' 2016 title-winning midifield.

Many home fans applauded N'Golo Kante upon his return to Leicester with new side Chelsea, but Albrighton predicted a tough first day for Drinkwater.

'It will be strange for us, but it'll be stranger for him', Albrighton told Sky Sports. 'To play in front of the fans that he played for, for so many years, but once the whistle goes, it's business as usual'.

'I'm sure he'll be professional and do the best he can. He might get stick for 90 minutes, but barring that I'm sure the Leicester fans will be fantastic with him', Albrighton added.

Drinkwater joined Leicester in 2012 and helped the Foxes climb out of the Championship and achieve Premier League success: 'He's achieved some tremendous things, that no one thought this club could achieve in this era, and he's been a huge part of that, from getting them out of the Championship, to winning the Premier League, to Champions League football', Albrighton stated.
