Chelsea vs Leicester Predictions


Chelsea are scoring goals and Cole Palmer often hits the net at Stamford Bridge. The Blues can use their home advantage to defeat an unconvincing Leicester side.

Head-to-Head


Chelsea have a 61-28 advantage against Leicester in 124 meetings with 35 draws.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea are unbeaten in seven consecutive matches, winning four. Two of these victories came in the FA Cup against Aston Vila (3-1) and Leeds (3-2).

The Blues followed their win over Leeds with a 2-2 draw at Brentford and a 3-2 home victory against Newcastle. 

Nicolas Jackson scored after just five minutes during the Newcastle win and Chelsea conceded before half time. Palmer restored Chelsea’s lead after the break and Mykhailo Mudryk’s 75th-minute strike sealed the win.

Chelsea Injuries & Team News


Defensive trio Wesley Fofana, Reece James and Levi Colwill are out.

Midfield pair Roméo Laviaand Lesley Ugochukwu and striker Christopher Nkunku are also ruled out.

Leicester Form


Leicester’s positivity has tailed off recently after failing to win in five of their last six, losing three. The Foxes edged past Bournemouth (1-0) after extra time in the FA Cup during this run.

That cup victory came before a defeat against QPR (2-1), a win over Sunderland (1-0) and draw with Hull (2-2). Leicester had to bounce back twice to salvage a point at Hull and Jamie Vardy struck both equalisers.

Midfielder Wilfried Ndidi is out. 

Verdict

Chelsea play on the front foot at home and Cole Palmer is central to the Blues’ attacking threat. The English forward can keep scoring and lead Chelsea to a cup win over patchy Leicester.
