Chelsea vs Leicester City Highlights Premier League 2018 Match

Chelsea are set to host Leicester City in the premier league game this weekend on Saturday, 13 January 2018 at Stamford Bridge. Antonio Conte is getting under increasing pressure as his team has gone three games without a win with both of their cup ties finishing 0-0 forcing replays and thats the last thing Chelsea needs at the moment. Another drop points on Saturday and Conte might find himself on the verge of sacking as the things are going this season. Leicester City will be looking to take advantage of Chelsea’s recent form and knick a point which will be a great result for Leicester City.

Leicester City vs Chelsea Preview: Chelsea have dominated Leicester City over the last 15 months winning both their premier league games 3-0 in their title winning campaign. However this season Antonio Conte’s men have started on the backfoot and Leicester will be confident of getting something from this game on Saturday.

Chelsea also defeated Leicester City with 3-0 scoreline in January 2017 with Marcus Alonso on target twice in what was a routine win in the league winning season for Chelsea.

Chelsea defeated Leicester City at Stamford Bridge last year in the premier league thanks to a superb performance by Eden Hazard with Diego Costa and Moses also on target in a win which was part of 13 games winning streak for Chelsea

Chelsea 3-0 Leicester City – 15 October 2016
[ English premier League 2016-17 ]
07′ 1 – 0 Diego Costa scores seven minutes into the first half to put Chelsea 1-0 in lead as Leicester crumble away from home yet again.
33′ 2 – 0 Eden Hazard made it 2-0 to pretty much settle the game as Leicester endures another terrible first half outing.
80′ 3 – 0 Victor Moses scores in second half after incredible one-two on the edge of the box and a neat finish to make it 3-0.

Vardy and Okazaki are expected to lead the forward line for Leicester City while Albrighton and Mehraz will be deployed on either wing, Drinkwater and Kante should take up central midfield roles. Simpson and Fuchs should keep their place as fullbacks with Morgan and Huth playing in central defence roles.

As far as Chelsea is concerned they don’t have major injury worries and we can expect the usual forward line with Costa leading the trio of Willian, Hazard and Oscar in attacking roles. Fabregas might start in central midfield alongside Matic. This is how I expect both teams to lineup tonight.


Predictions: Its so unreal for a team who was battling relegation last season to be challenging for the title while defending champions Chelsea struggling, sacking managers, players revolt and what not. This premier league season has been bonkers and there is no more fitting game than new champions visiting defending champions in their own backyard. I am going with a 2-1 Leicester win.
