Leicester City League Form: W-L-L-W-W

Even though they are a top-tier team, Leicester City’s performance has not been the best in their previous games. With only three games converted into wins from their previous 5, their form does not look to good currently. However, they are a team which seem to keep surprising with their team chemistry and playmaking skills.

Chelsea celebrate scoring in the EPL

Leicester City most recently recorded a 4-1 victory over West Ham, which is their first victory after two continuous losses. One of their first two victories before the loss was against West Ham again.

However, their victory over Newcastle United had given the team the push they needed to compete for the top three. That all went to vain due to their two consecutive losses against Southampton and Burnley F.C. Leicester City have recently become a top-class team who are able to compete for a top 3 spot in the league. It has been evident that Chelsea has been a stronger team in the past seasons.

With 48 points, Leicester City is placed third in the Premier League. If they win this fixture against Chelsea, it will keep them in a stronghold in the further weeks to come. They will be equalised in points with second-place rivals Manchester City. It will also give them a much-needed head-start for their next match against the Wolverhampton Wolves.

Key Players

Jamie Vardy has been outstanding for Leicester City and his performance has been a key factor for their overall performances. Apart from Vardy who plays forward, James Maddison has been consistently performing at midfield.

Ayoze Perez who plays forward has been a key player in the squad along with Johnny Evans at defence. Ben Chilwell has been giving forwards a run for their money performing well at the defence as well. These players along with their goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel will have key roles to play in their upcoming fixture.

Chelsea League Form: D-L-W-D-W

Chelsea’s form has been inconsistent in their last five games which they have played. With only two matches converted into wins, the team has been struggling to keep themselves afloat in the league. Chelsea has been able to carry themselves forward to be in the top 4 in the Premier League at the moment. This has happened on the shoulders of well-planned attacks and along with a stellar performance at midfield.

Frank Lampard has been experimenting with the younger players in the team by offering them key roles in matches. Even though that had not fared well for the veteran, the team seems to be stable despite the results. Chelsea has always been a rival for most of the top league clubs in the league and they understand the game.

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will Meet in the EPL this Weekend

For Chelsea, the match will not help them when it comes to a change in position from their current 4th place. However, winning the match against Leicester City, it will give them a boost and keep them in the race to finish in the top 3 in the league.

The goal difference and the points’ difference between them and Leicester City have been a top priority of the club given that more than half the season is done.

Key Players

Fabled Arsenal forward, Oliver Giroud has been in Chelsea since the past 2 years now. The French striker has been playing a key role in the club’s performance for this season. He has been consistently performing for the club and will play a pivotal role in this upcoming fixture.

Apart from Giroud, Tammy Abraham at forward has been exceptional in the field along with Christian Pulisic at midfield. The midfield for Chelsea has been doing very well for the club and more so with veteran N’Golo Kante to back them up. Kurt Zouma, Marcus Alonso and Emerson Palmieri have been holding down the fort at defence.

However, the team has yet to find its rhythm, given the performance in their last few games. Against Leicester City, they will need to be top form along with goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga.
