Leicester Claudio Ranieri has backed Chelsea boss Antonio Conte to bring success to the London club.
Leicester will entertain Chelsea in the third round of the English Football League at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.
Speaking ahead of Tuesday's clash, Ranieri, in his press conference, stated that he is impressed with Chelsea's performance so far this season.
"The reality here is different than in Italy and his job is bigger now, but I think he can lift some trophies," Ranieri said.
"You need to understand the league and your players. The players must understand him and how he manages and how he changes, what he wants. I watch a good Chelsea so far."
On the return of former Leicester star N'Golo Kante to the King Power Stadium, Ranieri urged Leicester fans to give him a warm reception.
"I will give to him a very warm welcome back and I am sure also our fans they must appreciate what he did last season and give him a warm welcome.
"I will be very happy if our fans clap him at the beginning and afterwards he is an enemy.
"They must understand that when a big team arrives, it is difficult to say no. For this reason, I say thank you to Jamie Vardy and his family, and to Riyad when they decided to stay here. For us, it was important to maintain everybody.
"He was very important for us and I think he was even more important for us than at Chelsea because Chelsea have so many big players."Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
