Leicester City will be looking to move further away from the relegation zone as they prepare to host underperforming tenth place side Chelsea in a Premier League encounter at the King Power Stadium.
Both teams have had seasons to forget. After challenging for European football over the past few years, Leicester finds itself in a potential relegation battle. The Foxes have won just seven out of their 25 games to date while they have lost 15.
Chelsea meanwhile are tenth and winning this season’s Champions League may present Graham Potter’s side with their best chance of qualifying for Europe’s premier club competition next season. The Blues enter this game 11 points adrift of fourth place Tottenham Hotspur.
Head To Head
The teams last played in August 2022 and Chelsea won 2-1.
Chelsea are unbeaten against Leicester in four games, winning three.
Leicester last beat Chelsea in a 1-0 FA Cup win back in May 2021.
Latest Leicester City results
Leicester’s last game was a 1-0 defeat to Southampton.

Chelsea’s last game was their 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Chelsea’s last defeat was when Tottenham beat them 2-0 late last month.
Chelsea is the side in better form and they will know that this presents them with an opportunity to claim a crucial away win as they look to end this season on a high. A win in this match can also help Graham Potter relieve some pressure that he faces. I expect the Blues to win 2-0.

Anytime Goal Scorers
Chelsea- Raheem Sterling. Sterling will be high in confidence following his goal against Dortmund. His pace and trickery on the ball is something that could pose a problem to the Foxes. Betway have Sterling to score at 2.90.
Leicester- Jamie Vardy. He is nearing the end of his career but Vardy is still a player who can punish the Blues if they are defensively napping, especially towards the death of games. Betway offer Vardy to score at 3.90.
