Premier League: Leicester vs Chelsea

Leicester vs Chelsea Betting Tip and Predictions. In the last match on Saturday in Premier League, Leicester City host Chelsea at The King Power Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Leicester vs Chelsea.

Leicester play very poor this season in Premier League and their main goal until the end of the season will be to avoid relegation zone. Despite the fact that many players from the last season stay in the club, the last season champions don’t shine. The only bright spot is their home performance and they are playing very good upfront their supporters (5-3-2). On away ground, Leicester City play terrible and they are still without away win this season in Premier League. Home side have already make some good results at The King Power Stadium beating Manchester City and West Ham, and took one point against Arsenal. Also, they won all three home games in the group phase of the UEFA Champions League, so IMO they are deserving better position. The match against Chelsea won’t be easy for home side, especially if we have in mind that visitors are playing amazing this season, but home team hope that can make good result.

Chelsea play great this season in Premier League and they are currently standing at the top of the table. Team from London is the main candidate for the title, but there are many matches left until the end of the season, so we can expect another interesting season. After 13 consecutive league wins Chelsea finally lost in the previous round against Tottenham 2-0 and made the title race more interesting. Visitors still have a decent 5 points more than 2nd Liverpool, so this could be a good chance for Chelsea to make the difference because The Reds will play against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Antonio Conte‘s men will not have an easy job against Leicester City because home side play at home and they will be fully motivated to beat them. Leicester beat Chelsea last season at home, so visitors have to be careful and give their maximum in order to take all three points. Diego Costa and Eden Hazard are doing great job in the attack, but it seems that visitors have some problems in the defence. Chelsea conceded 5 goals in the last three games in all competitions. According to the latest news and rumors, Diego Costa received a huge offer from China’s Tianjin Quanjian, that would make him one of the highest-paid players in the world. There are some rumors that was a fight between Conte and Costa after Blues manager told their best striker: “Go to China“.

Team News

Home side have no problems with injured and suspended players, but they will be without three important players Amartey, Mahrez and Slimani (all at the African Cup of Nations). On the other side, visitors will be without John Terry, who got the red card against Peterborough in the FA Cup. Alonso is doubtful for this game, but he should be ready and start the match from the beginning.

Leicester vs Chelsea Predicted Lineups

Leicester: Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Chilwell, Drinkwater, Ndidi, Albrighton, Musa, Okazaki, Vardy.
Chelsea: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso, Pedro, Hazard, Costa.

Leicester vs Chelsea Prediction

Home side desperately need points and they will try to do their best in order to stay unbeaten. Visitors have to win this game and make one big step forward in their title race. I expect interesting match between Leicester vs Chelsea and I don’t believe that visitors can win easy this one. Even if they win, I don’t think it will be more than one goal difference.

Leicester vs Chelsea Betting Tip: Leicester +1 Ah @ 1.73 (Bet365)
