Chelsea vs Leicester City Predictions

  • Chelsea have only won one of their last five competitive fixtures.
  • Leicester have avoided defeat in seven of their last ten Premier League games.
  • Jamie Vardy has scored braces in each of his last two appearances and has four goals against Chelsea.

Foxes to capitalise on Chelsea Blues

Chelsea can seal a third-place finish if they beat Leicester, but the Blues will head into the contest on the back of losing Saturday’s FA Cup final to Liverpool and having won just once in five matches across all competitions.

Meanwhile, Leicester appear to have recovered from their Europa Conference League exit at the hands of Roma after recording emphatic victories over Norwich City (3-0) and Watford (5-1) in their last two games.

The Foxes could still finish as high as eighth and they will fancy their chances of taking at least a point from their trip to west London, as they have lost on just one of their last four visits to Stamford Bridge.

High-scoring draw on the cards

Chelsea may have drawn a blank against Liverpool in the FA Cup final, but Thomas Tuchel’s side know where the back of the net is on home soil, as they have scored in each of their last 13 Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge – a run that dates back to September.

The Blues’ most recent home fixture was a 2-2 draw with Wolves and we are predicting a similar outcome on Thursday, with Leicester having netted eight goals across their last two games.

Four of the last eight league meetings between these two sides have ended all-square, including a 2-2 at the King Power Stadium in February 2020.

Vardy returning to fitness and form

Leicester forward Jamie Vardy has endured an injury-ravaged second half of the season, but he has recently marked his return to fitness with a flurry of goals.

Vardy notched braces against both Norwich and Watford, taking his Premier League tally for the season to 14 and he is on course to finish as the club’s top scorer for the sixth time in seven seasons.

The evergreen 35-year-old has netted on four previous occasions against Chelsea and we are predicting him to get on the scoresheet once again on Thursday and contribute towards Leicester picking up at least a point.

Chelsea predicted lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Sarr; James, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Ziyech, Mount; Lukaku

Leicester predicted lineup: Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Justin; Dewsbury-Hall, Mendy; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

  • Both teams to score has been a winning bet in six of Leicester’s last eight Premier League away games
  • Seven of Chelsea’s 17 Premier League home games this season have gone over 3.5 goals
