Match odds

Leicester are given a price of 11.00 to emerge successful in this match, but the Foxes have been struggling of late. Claude Puel and the Leicester players have done well to avoid a collapse after witnessing the sudden death of their Chairman, but poor quality up front has resulted in the team going through a disastrous spell of three consecutive losses. Chelsea are slowly regaining confidence after a few wobbles. Even though the team are still not at their best, the Blues can come up with a victory, according to our preview.

Chelsea vs Leicester City draw odds: 5.50

Leicester City win odds: 11.00

Correct Score odds

The term ‘Sarri-ball’ may not be used often these days but Chelsea still have the same possession philosophy. However, the Blues have struggled to convert the possession into goals. The team has scored over 2.5 goals only once in the last 10 matches, while Leicester have been poor going forward throughout the campaign. There is an obvious lack of confidence within Leicester. Still, our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Chelsea.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The Leicester team may be defensively decent and offensively poor, but Chelsea have the ability to come up with a few goals. Surprisingly, the Blues have not been great at the back with the opposition often having multiple chances to score. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Eden Hazard is back among the goals after coming up with some stellar performances in recent matches. The Belgian went through an eight-game goal drought not too long ago, but he has come up with an assist or a goal in each of his last five appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Eden Hazard.
