With the sort of form shown by Spurs, Man City and Liverpool, every game now is a must win for Sarri’s men if they are to be in the title running come the final straight of the season. This weekend they host a Leicester team that is reeling off the back of consecutive losses, however one that is more than capable of causing an upset at Stamford Bridge. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game and while with FansBet check out our selection of enhanced odds available from around Europe’s top-flight.
Tough festive Schedule For Leicester
A Christmas present no Leicester fan would’ve wanted was for a fixture list of Man City, Chelsea and Man City again all within a nine-day period. That is a serious worry for Claude Puel’s men, especially when considering that they’re winless from their last three league outings.
They drew with rock-bottom Fulham before losing 2-0 when Spurs came to town, while they’ll be bitterly disappointed with their defeat at Selhurst Park last weekend. That game saw the Eagles win without either Wilfred Zaha or James Tomkins, which is usually a routine three points for any opponent, but not for the Foxes on their current run as they’ve slipped into the bottom half of the table.
Chelsea In Decent Form
Chelsea boast a much better record of three wins from their last four games, as they had a slight hiccup at Wolves earlier this month in a game they should’ve put away before the break, narrowly losing 2-1.
However, they bounced back from that and have since inflicted Man City’s first league defeat since April this year, as the Citizens had won 18 of their 21 outings in that time. Moreover, the Blues also beat Brighton at the Amex last weekend, which is no easy feat.
Chelsea Clinical Against Bottom Half Teams
Maurizio Sarri’s men have been clinical against bottom-half sides this season as they’ve maximised their points from nine encounters so far, with seven of their victories coming by at least two clear goals.
That is a rather daunting prospect for Puel’s men, especially when the Foxes have lost five of the last six winless meetings with them in all competitions since 2016/17, as three of those defeats were by at least two strikes.
Moreover, it isn’t just Chelsea that have caused them problems as they’ve lost 12 of 14 winless trips to ‘Big Six’ sides since 2016/17, and so this has got the makings of a one-sided affair.
