Chelsea v Leicester Intro

Chelsea v Leicester match predictions and tips will be for the home side, with Antonio Conte’s team having won their last 7 home EPL matches, and not conceded at home in their last 4.

His team after a slow start are showing steel at the back to accompany their stars in attack. Rudiger, Cahill, Azpilicueta have been excellent in defence, they are helped by the best defensive midfielder in the League, in ex Leicester city player Ngola Kante. His performance away at Arsenal was nothing short of brilliant, and kept Chelsea in that game, snuffing out the Gunners intricate passing. The Stamford Bridge club look well placed for a top 4 finish.

Leicester have settled down after the sacking of Craig Shakespeare. The Foxes gained a win at home to Huddersfield in their last EPL game, they now sit comfortably in mid table. Boss Claude Puel looks to be the right man to take the club forward, and as a team they now look more balanced between defence and attack. In the past it all seemed about Mahrez and Vardy to the detriment of the team, the signings of Iborra, Ndidi, Maguire have helped this balance. Leicester are in 8th with a record that reads W8 D6 L8.

 

Chelsea v Leicester Key Match Questions

Can a less mobile Leicester backline cope with the movement of Hazard, Pedro, William?

Is the more attacking Fabregas less favoured than the more solid Drinkwater?

Does Claud Puel have an alternative game plan?

Chelsea v Leicester Match Preview

Chelsea at 1/4 along with Manchester United and Tottenham are the three odds on home teams this weekend. If we look at the best prices for their opponents then Leicester of the three underdogs are the shortest, at 11/1. Chelsea have played Arsenal on Wednesday in the Carabao Cup, so there could be some fatigue after such a busy schedule.

The 1/4 on the Blues is unattractive to most football tipsters looking for value, however with Leicester only having won only 4 times at Chelsea from 41 visits in the league thinking Leicester can get 3 points may be a bet too far.

Chelsea only beat Swansea and Southampton by 1 goal at Stamford Bridge which was a surprise, bettors could envisage another tight affair.

The draw is an option at 5/1, with Claud Puel not as gung ho as previous Foxes managers. They have not been thrashed by any side this season with many of their defeats being by the odd goal. Teams need to always be aware of counter attacks when playing Leicester, so maybe teams sit deeper and do not risk too many players forward to kill the game?

Of the three options the 5/1 the draw is risky, but if bettors don’t back bigger prices they will never get a bigger priced winner.

Chelsea v Leicester Injury News

Eden Hazard picked up a knock at Arsenal but should be ok for this game.

Team Formation

Chelsea will have Morata up top in a predicted 3-5-1-1. The wing backs Alonso and Azpilicueta will look to get forward, but need to be aware of Leicester’s dangerous wide players.

Claude Puel against Liverpool at Anfield went 4-2-3-1, he may try 4-3-2-1 in this game with Albrighton deeper than normal.
