Leicester vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: 11 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).

Leicester and Chelsea will lock horns in one of the most exciting games of Matchday No 27 on Saturday afternoon at King Power Stadium.

The Blues will enter the tie encouraged by a great display in a 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening in the UEFA Champions League.

Graham Potter’s men thus advanced to the quarterfinal of the elite continental competition as the former Brighton boss earned himself additional time on Chelsea’s bench.

Potter’s men now have two straight clean sheet wins, following the last weekend’s 1-0 success against Leeds at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are still as low as 10th in the Premier League table and they will be hoping to take advantage of the new momentum to try and pick up the third win on the spin this Saturday.

Leicester are in a much tougher situation. They are 15th in the league standings, sitting only two points above the relegation area.

The Foxes suffered an unexpected 1-0 defeat at the hands of direct relegation rivals Southampton in the last game of last Saturday’s Premier League schedule at St. Mary’s Stadium.

It was the fourth successive defeat for Brendan Rodgers’ troops in all competitions. However, it is worth mentioning that Leicester did offer a decent performance last weekend.

They would have probably won the match in Southampton on another day as Kelechi Iheanacho missed several clear-cut chances on the occasion.

The good news for their fans is the return of James Maddison who looked great on the pitch once again.

Leicester vs Chelsea Head-to-head

  • Chelsea lead the overall head to head tie by 25 wins going into the 96th meeting with the Foxes.
  • The Blues will go into this on the back of three victories and a draw in the previous four clashes against Leicester, a streak that includes this season’s 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge.
  • Both teams were on target in three of the previous four head to head matches.

Leicester vs Chelsea Prediction

Chelsea have improved their confidence after back-to-back wins within the last seven days but it is hard to find the value in backing them to beat Leicester at the 1.95 odds knowing they are winless in ten consecutive away games across competitions.

Instead, we are much more tempted by the 1.80 odds offered for the Both Teams To Score pick. We will also take the attractive 4.33 odds offered for Leicester’s striker Kelechi Iheanacho to score anytime.

Leicester vs Chelsea Betting Tips

  • Both Teams To Score @ 1.80 (4/5)
  • Kelechi Iheanacho to score anytime @ 4.33 (10/3) odd.
