Free tips Premier League: Leicester City v Chelsea predictions (5.30pm, Saturday)

Leicester City v Chelsea Betting Preview 



It’s a meeting of the two most recent Premier League champions at the King Power Stadium for Saturday’s late afternoon kick off as Leicester City host Chelsea.

This clash is well-remembered from last season as being Jose Mourinho’s final match in charge of the London Blues, as his side crashed to a 2-1 defeat at the soon-to-be champions.

That encounter ended an eight-game winning streak for Chelsea in this particular fixture, with Leicester losing two of the remaining three fixtures including both of the side’s encounters this season.

Antonio Conte’s side ran out comfortable 3-0 victors in the league fixture at Stamford Bridge, while they also came from two goals down to win 4-2 in extra time in the League Cup meeting between the two back in September.

Leicester City v Chelsea Anytime Scorer Odds

  • Diego Costa, Evens – Sports Winner – with 14 league goals this season, the Spanish striker is on fire. He will face a physical battle against Robert Huth and Wes Morgan here, but it’s one he’ll relish. At 1, these odds have value.
  • Eden Hazard 5/3 – 888Sport – also scored in September’s meeting between the sides at Stamford Bridge and with nine league goals, these odds are favourable if he gets in the lines between the Foxes defence and midfield.
  • Jamie Vardy 3/1 – Paddy Power, Betway – he only has six goals to his name so far this season but he scored a hat-trick in last month’s demolition of Manchester City, and his pace could cause problems for a sluggish Chelsea backline.
  • Ahmed Musa 7/2 – 32Red – the summer signing from CSKA Moscow has been on the edges of the Foxes squad but burst onto the scene with a quickfire double in last week’s FA Cup win at Everton – these are great odds if Claudio Ranieri gives him a chance.

Leicester City v Chelsea Betting Tips

Both Teams to Score – No, BetVictor 21/20 – Leicester have kept two successive league clean sheets while only Spurs have conceded fewer than Chelsea’s 15. This game should be low scoring.

Anytime goalscorer Jamie Vardy 3/1 – Paddy Power, Betway – these are great odds for a striker who is set to start – Chelsea won’t sit back as many of Leicester’s opponents have done, and like Man City, he could exploit a defence which lacks pace


Leicester City v Chelsea Prediction

Chelsea will be strong favourites but Leicester are unpredictable – the value in this game is Chelsea to go back to basics, keep things tight and wait for a defensive error from the home side.
