⭕ Match Preview

Leicester vs Chelsea prediction, King Power Stadium will host Saturday's football match between Leicester City and Chelsea, the two teams chasing the Champions League.
The Foxes have performed below expectations in the 2021/22 Premier League season, but they are still just seven points behind the top four.
Despite failing to score in the 1-1 draw with Leeds United, Jamie Vardy must continue to lead the way for the hosts.
Patson Daka, who represented Zambia in the World cup Qualifiers , is likely to come off the bench, while Justin, Albrighton, Fofana and Mendy remain in the recovery room.
Belgium international Tielmans is a big doubt. The Blues aim to retain top spot, but keep in mind that all of Lukaku, Werner and Kovacic are considered doubtful for the game.
Considering that Brendan Rodgers' men are hard to beat at home, we were tempted to put our money on the line.
Leicester City are preparing for this match following the 1-1 draw in the Premier League vs Leeds United.
In that match, Leicester City managed to control 44% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 3 on target.
The only player to score for Leicester City is Harvey Barnes (28′). For their opponents, Leeds United got 18 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Raphinha (26′) is Leeds United's goalscorer.
Leicester City have struggled to keep clean sheets of late, but they have also managed to turn their own chances into goals. During their last 6 matches, Leicester City have conceded in 6 of them and also scored in 5 of those matches.
Previously, Chelsea drew 1-1 in the Premier League match with Burnley.
In that match, Chelsea had 70% possession and 25 attempts on goal with 4 on target.
Chelsea's goalscorer is Kai Havertz (33′). For their opponents, Burnley got 5 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Matěj Vydra (79′) scores a goal for Burnley.
An excellent run of form from Chelsea defenders has seen the number of goals they conceded with 2 goals from their last 6 games combined.
Over the same period of time, their forward has scored 17 goals. We will see if that trend will continue in this match.
Looking at the statistics of their head to head meetings since 18/8/2019, not much can tell the difference between the club and Leicester City winning those 2 matches, Chelsea 2 and drawing 2 in normal time.
A total of 13 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the match, with 7 from the Foxes and 6 netting by the Blues. This gives the average number of goals per game equal to 2.17.
The previous league clash featuring these clubs was the 37th day Premier League fixture on 18/05/2021 which ended with Chelsea 2-1 Leicester City.
That day, Chelsea managed to control 58% and 17 shots on goal with 6 on target. The goalscorers are Antonio Rüdiger (47′) and Jorginho (66′).
Leicester City got 7 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Kelechi Iheanacho (76′) scored.
The referee is Mike Dean.
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers would love not to have any fitness concerns coming into this clash with a fully healthy squad to choose from.
With a fully healthy squad ready to go, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has no fitness issues to report ahead of this clash.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Leicester City will do well to beat this Chelsea team that we think will probably score & stay on top.
Having said that, we anticipate a very even match with a 0-1 win for Chelsea at the end of the game.

Leicester vs Chelsea Score Prediction: 0-1
