        Leicester City vs Chelsea Prediction, Tips & Stats

        Fresh from their European heroics, Chelsea travel to the Midlands on Saturday to take on a struggling Leicester at the King Power.

        Leicester looked to have started to put a run together at the beginning of the month, picking up consecutive big wins against Aston Villa and Tottenham, before that came to a close at Old Trafford. The Foxes were beaten 3-0 by Manchester United, followed by a defeat to Arsenal at home. Brendan Rodger’s side have regressed even further in recent weeks, going into the weekend after two poor results in a row. Leicester were knocked out the FA Cup in a shock 2-1 home defeat to Championship side Blackburn, before losing to a Southampton side last weekend that were bottom of the table prior to kick-off on Saturday.

        The three league defeats on the bounce have left Leicester in the midst of a very tight relegation scrap; just six points separate Bournemouth at the bottom with 12th place Crystal Palace. Leicester make up one of those teams in the bottom half, in 15th place as part of the cluster of teams that sit close to the bottom three. The Foxes are just two points from safety, with West Ham and Leeds the buffer to Everton in 18th. With the sides all so close together at the bottom, Leicester need to start picking up results otherwise they could find themselves being dragged in to the danger zone.

        Chelsea have also had a disappointing league campaign to say the least, as the Blue sit firmly in midtable. Graham Potter struggled to get his team moving in the right direction, coming under scrutiny in recent months, but Chelsea managed to ease that pressure in their last league game, with the West London outfit picking up all three points in a tight home win over struggling Leeds. It ended a run of three straight defeats in all competitions, after six games in all competitions without a win.

        Potter’s men continued with that momentum to put on a great showing in midweek as the Blues booked their place in the Champions League quarterfinal. Chelsea were impressive at home to Borussia Dortmund to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg, as goals from Raheem Sterling and Kai Havetz secured the 2-0 win on the night at Stamford Bridge. The Blues faithful will be hoping that it’s the start of a run that will reinvigorate their season after two huge results. They currently sit 10th, four points behind ninth-place Brentford despite playing a game more than the Bees.

        Leicester City Team News

        New signing Victor Kristiansen has established himself as first-choice left-back after a good start to his Leicester career following his move from FC Copenhagen in January. Kristiansen missed the Southampton game due to an ankle injury that will keep him out until around April.

        Timothy Castagne replaced the Dane at St Mary’s and will likely fill in for him again against Chelsea. James Justin also remains on the sideline with a ruptured Achilles, whilst Youri Tielemans will also miss out with an ankle ligament injury.

        Harvey Barnes picked up a knock in a challenge with James Ward-Prowse last weekend. The winger will have to be assessed ahead of Saturday’s game.

        Ryan Bertrand and Jonny Evans have been back training with the squad as they step up their returns from injury, but both are lacking in match sharpness so still look likely to miss out this weekend.

        Chelsea Team News

        Armando Broja remains a long-term absentee with the striker still recovering from an ACL injury that will see him miss the rest of the season. Thiago Silva is also set to miss out with the knee injury that he picked up against Tottenham two weeks ago. Kepa Arizzabalaga will continue in goal for Graham Potter’s side, with Edouard Mendy still out with a fractured finger.

        Ngolo Kante is nearing closer to a return after missing the majority of the season through injury. Saturday may come too soon for the French midfielder to slot straight back into the starting line-up, however.

        Cesar Azpilicueta is still likely to miss out as he recovers from the concussion he sustained against Southampton. Reece James missed the win over Leeds but was fit enough to play 90 minutes against Dortmund on Tuesday, so will likely keep his place at right wing-back. Mason Mount also missed the Leeds game, but was suspended for the Champions League game in midweek, so could be in the squad for the blues against Leicester.
