Leicester City vs Chelsea is the perfect start to a great weekend of fixtures, with the Premier League leaders visiting the King Power stadium for a lunchtime kick-off.
Chelsea betting tips
Romelu Lukaku could make a return from injury this weekend, and the likelihood of him netting a goal or two should never be underestimated. The Belgian forward has scored three goals from seven this season, and he’ll be eager to get back to his pre-injury form.
Chelsea are firm favourites to win on Saturday, though they’ve only won one of their last seven Premier League run-ins with the Foxes, so anything could happen.
The Blues have had an impressive start to the season, but will their recent draw against relegation candidates Burnley hinder their progress?
Leicester City betting tips
Leicester are unbeaten in their past three Premiership home matches against Chelsea, having already won against them twice in 2021 – once in the league, and then again to win the FA Cup final in May. They’ll be keen to continue with this form, and so a bet in their favour probably wouldn’t go amiss.
Jamie Vardy will definitely be looking to add to his tally, having scored seven times in his 11 Premier League appearances this season. It would certainly be a mistake to count out the 34-year-old, given his previous track record.
Leicester City vs Chelsea stats
Twelve of the last 13 matches between the sides have resulted in three or less goals, so it might be worth placing a bet on the match being a low-scoring one.
Chelsea have kept clean sheets in seven of this season’s 11 games, having only conceded four times in the Premier League since September. If Chelsea goalkeeper Édouard Mendy has anything to say, betting on a Chelsea victory and clean sheet might be a profitable way to start the weekend.
