Leicester vs Chelsea Prediction


Leicester have the opportunity to move to the top of the Premier League table on Tuesday night. I’m siding with them against an out of sorts Chelsea.

  • Leicester have won their last 3 matches (all competitions).
  • Leicester have won 7 of their last 10 matches (all competitions).
  • Leicester have won 6 of their last 9 home matches (all competitions).
  • Chelsea have lost 4 of their last 7 matches (English Premier League).
  • Chelsea have lost 3 of their last 4 away matches (English Premier League).
  • Chelsea have failed to beat Leicester in their last 5 attempts (English Premier League).

Head to Head


Chelsea have 57 wins in this fixture to Leicester’s 26. They have also played out 34 draws.

The most recent meeting ended in a 1-0 win to Chelsea in the FA Cup in June 2020.

Leicester Form


Leicester have been in a great run of form of late, leading to them having the opportunity to move to the top of the Premier League table with a win on Tuesday.

The Foxes have won seven of their last 10 matches and are also unbeaten in their last six. Brendan Rodgers side come into Tuesday off the back of three successive victories, having beaten Newcastle and Stoke 2-1 and 4-0 respectively.

Leicester made it three wins in a row after beating Southampton 2-0 at home, coming courtesy of goals from James Maddison and Harvey Barnes.

Leicester Team News & Injuries


Leicester will be without midfielder Dennis Praet due to a hamstring injury. Wesley Fofana and Caglar Soyuncu will be battling for a place alongside Jonny Evans at centre back.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea’s early hopes of challenging for the Premier League title now appear to be well and truly gone, especially if their recent form is anything to go by. Frank Lampard’s team have lost four of their last seven matches in the league.

Away from home, they also lost three in a row against Everton, Wolves and Arsenal, whilst also losing against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have won their last two matches, albeit against opposition they should be beating.

They thrashed League Two side Morecambe 4-0 in the FA Cup before Mason Mount’s goal saw them beat Fulham 1-0 at Craven Cottage in the Premier League.

Chelsea Team News & Injuries


N’Golo Kante is a doubt to face his former side with a hamstring injury, so Jorginho is expected to start in midfield.
