No place to hide for Foxes at Stamford Bridge

Mourinho won't allow newly-promoted teams to pour ice on his title charge

SPORTING: Nominated by striker Didier Drogba, Jose Mourinho (above) takes up the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for neurodegenerative illness ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Chelsea will look to build on their excellent start to the season by crushing their second newly-promoted team of the week in west London tonight.
Leicester City, winners of the Championship last season, will have their work cut out if they’re to take anything from this encounter.
Jose Mourino’s side are the title favourites, a status they did not earn by slipping up in winnable home games.
The Foxes could be pleased with their start last week, a late Chris Wood goal securing a point against Everton, but this will be a very different proposal.
There will be a level of excitement at Stamford Bridge, not least because of the way in which the Blues dismantled Burnley on Monday.

BIG BOOST: The signing of first-class players like Alexis Sanchez (above) have improved Arsenal squad depth to their best level in years.

Our columnist Didi Hamann  likes the look of Arsenal this season.

Sometimes, you need the first trophy to get that confidence and belief.
Hes think we will see a different Arsenal this season. They have got that swagger about them.
Last season, Arsenal went to Goodison Park and got beaten 3-0, but it will be a different story this time.
There is a gap in quality between the two teams..

Ice bucket challenge gave me a warm glow

As Ice Bucket Challenge gathers steam, our reporter Melody Ng gives it a go

BRRR: I had to do the Ice Bucket Challenge four times before we got a family-friendly video.

The warm glow that came after being dunked with ice cold water was worth it after I took on Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) Ice Bucket Challenge.

ALS, often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a neurodegenerative illness for which there is no cure.

The challenge lets people "tag" their friends and dare them to either be drenched in ice-cold water or to donate US$100 to the ALS association should they decide not to do it.

As I was one of those tagged, I took on the challenge. I was splashed what seemed like arctic temperature water onto my back.

In the video of the challenge, I tagged all TNP readers and I hope everyone will give this a go. Help support the community and have fun doing it.
