Chelsea vs Leicester City: Prediction
This fixture must be considered as a clash between two sides struggling to find consistency in their overall game play. The results speak for itself as both Chelsea and Leicester have managed one win from their last 4 league fixtures.
But Leicester’s away form is the biggest disappointment as they have lost in each of the three league matches and conceded a massive 10 goals. At the same time you can back Chelsea to do well while playing in front of their home fans. They lost to Liverpool 2-1 in their last match at Stamford Bridge and this will be giving their all to repeat the same once again.
As seen in the past meetings between the two, goals can be expected in plenty and it’s a good choice to go over 2.5 goals in this match.
