Leicester City vs Chelsea Prediction: Premier League Match on 19.01.2021
Brendan Rodgers may be reluctant to admit Leicester City are in the title race this season, but their league position would argue otherwise. The Foxes could move to the summit with a win against Chelsea on Tuesday night.
Premier League Preview
There have been many similarities to the way Leicester have started the season compared to last term. However, Rodgers will be keen to emphasis that his side don’t take their foot off the accelerator like they did 12 months ago. The Foxes are just two points behind Manchester United at present, and are sitting in third in the league table. Their current league position sees them sitting above Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, and they look to be well placed to challenge for a Champions League spot in the second half of the season. Their recent form has been decent, as they haven’t lost in five and have won their last two. Leicester’s most recent win came on Saturday against Southampton. James Maddison and Harvey Barnes scored the goals in that win over the Saints.
Frank Lampard will be hoping for more improvement from his side, as they currently sit in seventh. They are five points outside the top four at present, and any hope of them finishing in the Champions League places this season will be relying on slip-ups from the sides above them in the league standings. The Blues ended a run of three without a win in their last league game, but it wasn’t a convincing display against relegation-threatened Fulham. Mason Mount eventually broke the deadlock in the second half, but the Blues will need to be much better on the road in this game, as defeat could give them too big of a challenge to get back into the Champions League picture.
Leicester City vs Chelsea Head To Head
Chelsea haven’t lost to Leicester in four meetings in all competitions. The last game between the sides came in the FA Cup in June, as Chelsea ran out 1-0 winners. The last three league matches between the sides have all ended in draws.
Leicester City vs Chelsea Prediction
This is a huge game for the Blues at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes are looking like a side that could finish in the top-four this season, and will consider a point as a decent result in this fixture.
