Chelsea haven’t made the best of starts to this season’s Premier League and need to respond in front of their own fans this weekend having suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat away at Leeds. Thankfully for the Londoners, they go up against a Leicester side that has only managed to secure 1pt from their opening three matches and appear to have no confidence.
Chelsea vs Leicester Head-to-head (h2h)
- 2 of the past 3 encounters had goals from both teams.
- The latest meeting had finished in a 1-1 draw.
- 3 of the past 4 clashes at this ground had goals from both teams.
- The last 2 overall wins at this stadium were split into one each for either squad.
Prediction 1: Chelsea to Win-to-Nil
Chelsea have won three of their last six meetings with Leicester and two of those victories produced clean sheets for the Londoners. Chelsea started the new season with a win-to-nil at Goodison Park against another struggling club, Everton. Leicester failed to score against Stockport County in the League Cup in midweek, needing a penalty shoot-out to defeat the League Two side.
Prediction 2: Under 3.5 Goals
Under 3.5 goals have been scored in each of the last six meetings between these two clubs in all competitions, and we’re predicting more of the same this weekend. Three of Chelsea’s and four of Leicester’s last six outings in all competitions have ended with fewer than 4-goals being scored, so you can see why we’re not expecting a goal-fest on Saturday.
