Team Analysis and Match Predictions
Leicester defeated West Ham at home in their last league match 4-1. A big win helps Leicester to get back to winning ways and end their bad journey.
The Foxes have performed well this season, proven they can score in 29 of 31 previous matches and have scored the most goals after Liverpool and Manchester City. They have scored two or more goals in nine of their previous thirteen home matches.
As host, Leicester have only lost twice this season, namely against Southampton and prospective champions Liverpool. In addition, at one point this season, Leicester have run seven wins at home and nine matches unbeaten.
Meanwhile, Chelsea were held to a 2-2 draw at home by Arsenal. The Blues defense is currently very questionable, because they can concede two goals by Arsenal’s visitors who only play with ten people.
To date Chelsea have scored in 29 of 34 previous matches and in 18 of their previous 20 away games.
In other records Chelsea managed to carry 11 of the last 13 wins and are unbeaten in this stadium for the past five years. It is also worth mentioning that in this stadium, only the Foxes have won twice against the Blues since 1998.
In the match later, the possibility of Leicester could take over the match against Chelsea, because they play at home and they have won back in the last match. However, Chelsea will not say anything. They are noted to have a better head to head victory over Leicester.
