In one of the big matches of this round…
We have a duel between the two last Premier League champions: Leicester and Chelsea.
The latest champions haven’t been very impressive on this start of the season in the English Premier League.
Chelsea started off on the wrong foot, with an unexpected loss against Burnley at home. But then, they’ve recovered well with 2 wins against two of the best teams in this competition: Tottenham and Everton.
That has left the Blues in 6th place of this Premier League, with 6 points gained so far.
Chelsea might not have been involved on the biggest signings of this latest transfer window but they’ve spent a lot, bringing in Rudiger, Morata, Bakayoko
and, last week, they’ve confirmed Drinkwater from Leicester and Zappacosta from Torino.

Leicester vs Chelsea – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Leicester have curiously lost Drinkwater against their next opponents, Chelsea, last week. But the team was able to keep the core from their Premier League champions’ squad.
Sure there have been some departures. But the main core is still there. The team has also signed some reinforcements, with their biggest moves in this transfer window being the signing of Maguire, Iborra and Iheanacho.
On this competition, Leicester started off a bit inconsistent with losses against Arsenal and United and then a win over Brighton.
I expect a match with goals here.
Both teams have good offensive sectors but defensively they’ve been showing some problems. Playing in Leicester is tricky and I hope that the hosts are able to score.
As for Chelsea, their power makes me believe that they’re capable of scoring as well.
