Leicester vs Chelsea: Chelsea to win
A solid and certain Chelsea is set for another dominant showdown over Premier League defending champions Leicester City.
Twice recently, the Blues have run riot over Chelsea and nothing suggests that this will change. The Foxes have been a total letdown this season, and are struggling to replicate the slightest of displays last season. Naysayers have been convicted, at least for now. Let alone Leicester; Explosive forward Jamie Vardy is a shadow of himself and the goal
tap is seemingly drying up.
These two sides seem to have swapped places this term, with one in sure contest for the title, while the other is staring relegation in the eye. 28 points separate the two sides, and that is sufficient testimony that these will be an extremely unbalanced affair.
It just doesn't get better for the Foxes. Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez who are their best scorer currently are jetting out for the Africa Cup of Nations, something that totally complicates their assignment against the Blues.
The last two contests between these sides have delivered goals! 9 to be precise, and it is Chelsea which has the Lion’s share; 6. If there was a time Leicester dreaded hosting Chelsea, then it is now.
Diego Costa is in sublime form, netting at will. Antonio Conte has weaved a solid backline that has conceded just 5 goals in the last 12 assignments. The Spaniard will certainly be on the business end of things in this one again.
Expect a one-sided contest, where an unforgiving Chelsea should cement its place at the top of the log with a 3-star display.
