Chelsea vs Leicester – Premier League : On the return of the Premier League after a short break, Chelsea hosts Leicester at Stamford Bridge
For those who are more inattentive, this is the duel of the two latest Premier League’s champions.
The bad news is that neither of them will be able to repeat their feat this season.
Leicester had a terrible start to the Premier League, even occupying the bottom positions of the league table for several rounds. But the team reacted. They currently occupy the 8th place with 30 points conquered.
Realistically, the team won’t be able to get much further than this, since their opponents that are fighting for the European spots already have a very large technical and mathematical advantage.
As visitors, Leicester has 3 victories, 4 draws and 4 losses, having scored 18 goals and conceded 18 goals as well.

The current champions aren’t making a poor campaign as well. The team occupies the 3rd place of the league table with 46 points, sitting only 1 points behind 2nd place Manchester United.
The big problem is that the team is already 14 points behind leaders Manchester City.
City is on a different level, making an almost perfect campaign and they haven’t given their contenders much room.
Playing at home, the team has 8 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, having a record of 21 goals scored and 7 goals conceded.
Except the favourites, Leicester is maybe one of the most competitive teams in the Premier League. Even with the losses on their roster, they are still competitive and causing troubles to the Premier League’s big teams.
Chelsea vs Leicester – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe that Leicester will be capable of scoring here. Chelsea hasn’t been having a very efficient defensive performance and Leicester has the attack to cause them problems here.
Naturally, I also expect the hosts to score, so I’m going with both teams scoring here.
