Chelsea vs Leicester Prediction: Winner

  • Chelsea has historically been a stronger side than Leicester City. The Blues will also be having the home advantage on their side. Tuchel won’t like to miss such an easy chance of grabbing all 3 points and target to challenge the position of the top teams. On the other hand, Leicester City needs to bring out their best to avoid a loss on Saturday.
  • Rodgers needs to make some good plans to improve the defence of his side. His side has players with some good skill sets, but a complete team effort would be required to trouble Chelsea in their own backyard. All the predictions and betting platforms are suggesting a win for Chelsea.
