Games involving Leicester have gone from quite boring to quite interesting in just one year – and we all know why. Sadly for them, their current Premier League form and Champions League form are very different – and this time, we’re looking at their PL clash against Chelsea.
If recent history tells us something, is that these games are very close – but we’ll have to see who we think will come out on top.
Chelsea vs Leicester City – 15/10/2016
Chelsea is coming after a 2-0 away victory over Hull, which ended their 3-game winless streak. These streaks are exactly the kind of thing they want to avoid if they want to challenge for the title, although their current form directs us more towards a top-4 finish as a realistic objective.
Thankfully for them, Diego Costa’s form is great, and the other team seems to be picking up speed as well. Conte’s side are not playing as defensive as we’d thought they would – meaning that we might actually see some goals against Leicester.
On the other hand, the current champions are playing great in the Champions League, not so great in the Premier League. Apart from a 0-0 draw against Arsenal, they’ve failed to win any points against big teams, losing heavily against Man United and Liverpool.
An away game against Chelsea shouldn’t be great for them either, especially since Conte’s team beat them 4-2 (after extra time, though). The only advantage on their side is the fact that they had much fewer players called on international duty.
Chelsea vs Leicester City Betting Tips
That being said, we back Chelsea to do well in this game. 1X is an almost sure bet, while a solo home win is also fairly expected.
We also back Diego Costa to be among the goalscorers, and if you’re looking for scores, 2-0 and 2-1 are the best ideas.
