Chelsea vs. Leicester City Preview & Prediction

Leicester City will continue defending their title this Saturday, as they will be travelling to London to square off against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea returned to their winning ways in their last contest before World Cup qualifying resume, as they defeated Hill City 0-2 away from Stamford Bridge. A win in this matchup will take Chelsea to the top of the table for just a few hours.

The champions are still looking to get that winning mojo, and they are currently a team that gets mixed results. Leicester sits in 12th in the Premier League table, with 8 points. Leicester City will be hoping for a victory to get their title defense back on track.

Prediction: This matchup must be considered as a matchup between two teams struggling to be consistent in their bodies of work. The results are there as both Chelsea and Leicester have managed one victory in their last four league games. But Leicester playing on the road is the biggest disappointment as they have lost three league games and given up ten goals. But then again, we can argue that Chelsea can do well playing at home. Liverpool defeated Chelsea 2-1 in their last home game, and I don't see a repeat of that on Saturday (Chelsea Wins).
