Team Analysis

Leicester

Leicester supremacy last season might come to an end, as the team continuously struggle on snatching a win and earning some points that will bring them on top of the league standings. With no Jamie Vardy, comes the challenge for the remaining star players of club to create some runs here.

The Foxes will try to redeem themselves up after a goalless draw result against Middlesbrough. Claudio Ranieri’s men will try to count on Ahmed Musa as he was the man of the match on their game against Everton on FA Cup. Bringing on their impressive stunt in the said rally can somehow help them to surpass the heat that Chelsea will use over them.

Although home turf advantage is on their side, Leicester City will remain to be the underdog in this match considering the record that their visitors had in their past meet-up. It will be a make it or break it situation here for the host as they try to move far away from the relegation zone.

Chelsea

Le Blues appeal on John Terry red card was rejected as the team captain of the club will serve a one game ban, and this will be their rally against the titleholder. Without the 35-years old defender comes the great challenge for them as they can never set aside the hunger for a win that their rivals have as of the moment.

Chelsea will arrive in this match with a fresh win against Peterborough on the FA Cup, and a desire to pick themselves up after Mauricio Pochettino’s men outclassed them with a clean sheet match a week ago.

Diego Costa will be the primary man in charge of creating a play, as he tries to add more points for his name and the club. Pedro indeed had a magnificent run in their most recent domestic campaign as he open-up a shot and generating another one at the end.

Prediction

A rewarding victory might be claim by Chelsea on this match due to the poor form that Leicester had on their previous matches. Expect that this won’t be an easy game though as the Foxes desire to win is too high considering the fact that they can’t afford to lose another rally.

Chelsea 1.61 (this odd might change)

Score: 0-2
