Chelsea defender Zouma: Leicester are dangerous; we know their weapons

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma knows they face a "dangerous" Leicester City team tonight.

The Foxes sit in third place on the Premier League table and Zouma says it's crucial Chelsea play the game their way.

"We look at Leicester, they are a dangerous team and we know their weapons, but how we approach the game is the most important," he said.

"We want to play our way and we want to win this game our way. The manager has told us to be positive. We know we've had a bad period and we could've done better in many games, but everything that happened is behind us now.

"This year you can see that every team is grabbing points from everybody. Every game is different and difficult. It's going to be a very open game, but we have to be focused on ourselves."

Of his own form, the Frenchman insists he's happy, despite being benched for victory at Fulham on Saturday.

"I am improving at many aspects of the game," the France international told the club's website.

"Before I was young and needed to learn many things but now, I'm 26 and established and have a bit of experience. I'm playing week in week out and the work is never finished. I have to keep working hard and keep learning every day.

"I'm happy to be back playing at Chelsea after what happened with the injury, and then going on loan, so I'm just enjoying myself at the minute."
