Chelsea vs Leicester
England – Premier League
Date: Thursday, 19 May 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have come so far this season to just let their third position slip away.
Fans are already disappointed after being eliminated from the Champions league, which they had won the previous season. And on top of that they had to experience loss at the hands of Liverpool in both the finals of EFL cup and FA Cup, and that too via penalties.
It goes without saying a podium finish is the least that Thomas Tuchel can give the fans after a difficult campaign.
They are at home this Thursday, and the team will give their absolute best in order to make sure that they finish above the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal as the season comes to an end.
But former champions Leicester are determined to prove a point. They had an absolutely poor season this time around, which resulted in them not qualifying even for the Europa Conference League.
However, they have managed to improve their form slightly in this final phase of the season, and they will be determined to not let this momentum drop now.
And what better way to make amends than to register a win against the previous European champions, that too at their home. As things stand it is expected that either team will find the back of the net at least once this Thursday.

Chelsea vs Leicester Prediction & Analysis
The Blues registered a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day against Leeds, but they had to follow it up with a loss in the FA Cup Final against Liverpool. As such. they will be determined to give some sense of closure for their fans, and we can count on them to come out with guns blazing.
Considering their overall form all through the campaign, along with the struggles of the Foxes this season, chances are high that Tuchel’s men will post the three points on the board.
However, the Foxes had just recorded a 1-5 win on the road the past game week against Watford, and they had scored a total of eight goals from just their past two fixtures.
They are also determined to keep this scoring streak going on, and on top of that the Blues have been struggling quite a bit with their defense as well lately.
As such it is expected that goals will come in plenty this match day.
