Chelsea v Leicester Match Prediction - Preview

Chelsea FC

Chelsea is seated 4th at the table in the Premier League. Besides losing the FA Cup to Leicester, they also lost their most recent EPL encounter against Arsenal. Emile Smith-Rowe scored early on for the Gunners, making his effort in the 16th minute. The Blue were unable to make their mark on this game, with efforts from Mason Mount, Olivier Giroud and Kurt Zouma falling short. With the race for a top-four placing in the league becoming more competitive, and with the UEFA Champions League final looming in the future, Manager Thomas Tuchel and his side must come up with a big game to boost their momentum.

  • Chelsea are winless in their six last EPL meetings with Leicester (D4 L2).
  • They have just won two of their seven midweek (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) EPL matches this season (D2 L3). 

Leicester City FC

Leicester City hold on to the third spot in the table, and are on a high after winning the FA Cup. They also scored a big win over Manchester United (3-1) in their last EPL match. Luke Thomas put the Foxes on the board 10 minutes in when he met a cross from Youri Tielemans. The Red Devils leveled with Mason Greenwood scoring at 10′. Leicester then took the lead for good in the second half as Caglar Soyuncu headed in a cross from Marc Albrighton. Tielemans also starred in the FA Cup, as he provided the lone goal in the contest against Chelsea. Manager Brendan Rodgers are riding on a high going into this game; however, they know the Blues are keen on revenge, which means they need to be cautious.

  • Leicester are looking to complete their first league double over Chelsea since the 2000-01 campaign.
  • They have just won two of their last 29 games against Chelsea (D11 L16).

Chelsea v Leicester Match Prediction - Final Thoughts

Despite losing to the Foxes twice this year, the third time will be the charm for Chelsea. Apart from the home advantage, they are in a do-or-die position now as they try to secure a top 4 spot, and have a backup just in case the UCL final does not go their way.  Leicester will put up a fight as the new FA Cup champions, but this will be Chelsea’s time to shine. Let’s take a look at our predictions.
