Leicester City vs Chelsea - Premier League Preview and Odds

February 01, 2020 12:30pm - King Power Stadium (Leicester, Leicestershire)

Premier League

Two teams with top-four ambitions go head-to-head on Saturday lunchtime as third-ranked Leicester City host fourth-ranked Chelsea with an eight-point gap separating the teams.

The Foxes got back to winning ways with a 4-1 demolition of West Ham United last time out. They will hope to maintain that form as they look to beat their rivals and keep in touch with second-ranked Manchester City.

Brendan Rodgers` men have already defied expectation by staying in the hunt for a top-two finish when many predicted they would finish fifth or sixth at best.

They have scored the third-highest number of goals and have the third-tightest defence in the league. What`s more, they have only lost twice at home all season, to Liverpool and Southampton.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will look to close the gap to Leicester while keeping the teams below them at arm`s length. They have a six-point cushion over Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers so defeat here could amplify the pressure on the Blues.

Chelsea have not beaten Leicester City in the league since 2017. Since then, they have played out three draws and suffered one defeat.

Predicted line-ups:

Leicester City: Schmeichel Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell Praet, Ndidi, Tielemans Perez, Maddison, Vardy

Chelsea: Arrizabalaga James, Zouma, Tomori, Azpilicueta Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic Willian, Batshuayi, Hudson-Odoi

Recent Form (League)

Leicester City: WLLWW

Chelsea: DLWDW

Betting odds and tips

Leicester City come into this game on a high following the win against West Ham, while Chelsea will still be hurting from the 1-0 defeat at Newcastle. As a result, the home side look clear favourites here.

Eight of Leicester`s last 12 home games have produced Over 2.5 Goals. So, Leicester City/Over 2.5 Goals looks the best bet here.

You can back Leicester City/Over 2.5 Goals at 11/4.
