Leicester vs Chelsea 29.04.2015

Chelsea-vs.-Leicester-City

Leicester vs. Chelsea / Premier League – In the second match of the English Premiership which was not played as scheduled, we have two teams that are currently in great form, but Chelsea is better ranked on the table and they are in leading position, while Leicester escaped the relegation zone only after last round, but with only one point more. Besides, the “Blues” from London have a series of seven consecutive wins over Leicester and they celebrated with 2-0 at home in the autumnal part of the season. Begins: 29.04.2015 – 20:45 CET

Leicester

But at that time, Leicester was practically nailed to the bottom of the table and they made only a few good results, mostly at home. Of course that all of this brought them in a very difficult situation before the finish of the championship, but then they made a big improvement in their game and with four consecutive wins finally escaped the relegation zone after last round.

Namely, coach Pearson’s players have in celebrated over West Ham and Swansea at home and over West Bromwich and Burnley away, so they now have one point more than the 18-ranked Sunderland, while the 16th Hull has the same number of points, and Aston Villa has only one point more. On the other hand, the last two teams, QPR and Burnley, have a big backlog so it is very possible that we will watch the popular 2Foxes” in the Premiership next season. Let us add that only injured the midfielders Hammond and Schlupp and striker Nugent will not be able to perform in this match with Chelsea.

Probable lineups Leicester: Schmeichel – Wasilewski, Morgan, Huth – Albrighton, Drinkwater, Cambiasso, King, Konchesky – Ulloa, Vardy

Chelsea

As for Chelsea, they are in a great mood before this match, given that they made four wins and one draw in the last five rounds, and that was last weekend away against the second ranked Arsenal. In this way, coach Mourinho’s players made a big step towards winning the new title of the English champions, because the difference between them is still 10 points, as much as Manchester City has, with the proviso that the “Citizens” have one match more than that duo from London.

All this tells us that the team of Chelsea has the right to make some mistakes in the remaining five matches, which is why we now expect them to play a lot more offensive against Leicester than they did in the last two rounds against Manchester United and Arsenal, all in order to show the English public that they in addition to a solid defence have a very quality attack. However, due to injuries they are still without their first two strikers Diego Costa and Remy, while midfielder Oscar is also very questionable, so besides the experienced Drogba we expect much more from the offensive midfielders Willian, Fabregas and Hazard.

Probable lineups Chelsea: Courtois – Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta – Matic, Ramires – Willian, Fabregas, Hazard – Drogba

Leicester vs. Chelsea PICK

Given that Chelsea is lately under fire by the British public because of their extremely defensive and at times very boring game, this match against Leicester is actually an ideal opportunity for them to change that negative image, especially because their opponents are now in great form, mostly thanks to their offensive approach.

Pick: over 2.5 goals

Stake: 5/10

Odds: 1.85 at bet365 (down to 1.77 can be played)
