Leicester City vs Chelsea: Match Preview

Posted by

Chelsea will travel to Leicester for their last game of the season. Blues are already ensured of UEFA Champion League participation next season.

Chelsea drew their last game against Frankfurt and needed a penalty shootout win to progress to the Europa League final. Kepa was instrumental in Chelsea’s win in their last game.

Leicester narrowly lost their last game away at Manchester City by 1-0. They put in a great defensive performance and a long-range Kompany strike was required by Man City to get their win.

Form

Leicester – WLDWL

Leicester has been putting in good performances in recent weeks. In their last two games, they have beaten Arsenal 3-0 and lost 1-0 away at Man City. Even against Man City, Foxes had chances to score goals. They are playing with confidence and press their opponents, just like how Rodgers like his team to do.

Match Prediction

This could be possibly Eden Hazard’s final Premier League game and he would like to go with a win. Leicester away won’t be an easy game for Sarri.

Leicester will have their own plans and would like to end the season on high. We expect the game to end in a draw but expect both teams to attack. It will surely be an exciting game to watch.
