Chelsea vs Leicester Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening match of the Round 8 in Premier League, Chelsea host Leicester at Stamford Bridge. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Chelsea vs Leicester.
Chelsea didn’t make an impressive start of the season in Premier League and after 7 rounds they are standing at the 7th position. Before the start of the season, home side was one of the main favorites to win the title, but their recent performance is not at the high level and they will be fully motivated to beat Leicester City and move up on the table. Last season Chelsea failed to beat Leicester in both Premier League games (1-1, 2-1), but they eliminated them this season in the 1/16-finals of EFL Cup. Diego Costa has exploded this season and he has already scored 6 goals and he hope that will continue with his good performance in this match. Good thing for home side could be the fact that they do not participate in any of European club competition this season, so they can fully focus on Premier League. Their manager Antonio Conte is not satisfied with his defence, so there are some rumors that he could sell Eden Hazard in order to bring Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci.
In home team Van Ginkel, Zouma and Willian are all injured, while Terry is doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Mendy and James, while Drinkwater and Okazaki are both doubtful, but the first one should be in the starting line-up.
Chelsea vs Leicester Predicted Lineups
Chelsea: Courtois, Cahill, Luiz, Azpilicueta, Matic, Kante, Alonso, Moses, Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard.
Leicester: Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs, Mahrez, Drinkwater, Amartey, Albrighton, Slimani, Vardy.
Chelsea vs Leicester Prediction
Home side have an advantage of home field and they are favorites to win this game, but I can’t underestimate visitors who have very decent squad. However, I expect interesting match between Chelsea vs Leicester and at least three goals, so over 2.5 goals is my betting prediction for this game.
