Chelsea vs Leicester preview

Chelsea vs Leicester

English Premier League


Leicester will visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday to try and end home side’s six-games unbeaten run in Premier League.

Chelsea were held to 2-2 draw by Arsenal in thrilling match at the Emirates on January 3rd but against Foxes they are set as clear favorites, priced as low as 1.25 at most of the bookmakers. They were doing really well at Stamford Bridge this season, and last time they dropped points in 0-1 defeat to league leaders Manchester City in September.

Leicester City were struggling since middle of December, and since fantastic 4-1 win away at Southampton, they lost to Palace, Liverpool and Watford, and managed to surprise Manchester United with 2-2 draw. However, in their last league match they managed to beat Huddersfield without much problems.

Chelsea are favorites to win this match against Foxes, but prices for a home win are definitely not worth a try. Leicester showed more than few times that they can cause huge problems to “big” English sides.

Major concern for the guests will be fitness of Jamie Vardy. English striker is well known for his record against “big six”, and if they are going to take anything from this game, it is important for them to have Vardy fit and in the mood.

There’s no doubt that Chelsea can come out as clear winners of this match, but there’s also no doubt that value is on Leicester. Our prediction system gives them 14% chances to take all 3 points, and it is worth a try.

Verdict: 1-2
