Chelsea vs Leicester city – Preview and Prediction

Chelsea vs Leicester city: Chelsea are back in Premier League action against Leicester City this weekend after securing passage to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup in midweek.

A late Eden Hazard goal downed Bournemouth at the Bridge on Wednesday night to set up a London derby tie against Tottenham, but Maurizio Sarri’s men must now focus on their League hopes.

Two defeats in their last five League games may leave the title race a bridge too far this season, but the Blues are only eight points behind leaders Liverpool heading into the festive fixture period.

Leicester have had a disjointed campaign so far with six wins and seven losses, and need a performance after losing their last three matches against Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Manchester City respectively.

Head to head history and results

Chelsea got the better of Leicester at the King Power Stadium last season with a 2-1 win, but the return fixture was a goalless stalemate at the Bridge this January.
