Reason For Chelsea vs Leicester City Betting Tips

Chelsea’s chances of lifting the League Cup took a bit of a blow in midweek as they faltered to a goalless draw in the home leg of their semi final against Arsenal, leaving them needing a result at The Emirates to progress to Wembley. This followed on from their draw at Norwich in the FA Cup to pile more fixture congestion into the mix, but they will be more optimistic coming back into the Premier League.

The reigning champions are unbeaten in six league matches and have won four of them, a tally that puts them 3rd in the table and just a point behind Manchester United in 2nd. The title may be all but over, but the race for Champions League qualification is still a hot one.

Leicester also suffered cup disappointment last weekend as they were held to a goalless draw at Fleetwood Town, although that does at least give Jamie Vardy a chance to face his former club when they meet in the replay on Tuesday.

This draw followed on from a 3-0 win over Huddersfield, but prior to that The Foxes were winless in five competitive games. This puts their hopes of European qualification in jeopardy, with them sitting 8th in the table but some nine points adrift of 6th placed Arsenal.

Away from home Leicester have been pretty decent overall this season, but recently things have taken a turn for the worse. They have lost 2-1 against both Watford and Liverpool since Christmas, putting an end to their seven match unbeaten run on the road.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have won their last seven home games in the Premier League, more than making up for a dismal start to their season at Stamford Bridge. Defensively they have improved significantly since that shock 3-2 defeat to Burnley on the opening weekend of the season, but we still fancy Leicester to get on the scoresheet.

The visitors have found the net in each of their last seven trips away in the league and have only failed to score twice on the road this season. Recent form suggests that they will still lose against a Chelsea side who are loving life at Stamford Bridge at the moment, so we’re backing a Chelsea Win and Over 2.5 Goals, alongside a Both Teams to Score bet and another 2-1 win for the hosts.

Michael – Leicester

“I really dont know which way this game will go. Leicester have been dull at times  but then turn up with flashes of brilliance that won us the league. Id like to say well have a good go at them, Mahrez still eager to impress any interested parties so im sure hell be on form and hopefully we see abit more of what silva can do. If we start slow were in for a beating i think. Chelsea seem to be stop start a little in terms of performances so hopefully theyre having a bad day and we can pounce. If we were to beat them it would be close id go with 1-0 but if they are on top form especially Hazard if hes not injured then 3-0 Chelsea.”

Score Prediction: 3-0 Chelsea
