Chelsea vs Leicester City 13 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions


Former Arsenal midfielder Merson is backing the title holders to ease to an unconvincing win against the Foxes at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Foxes travel to Stamford Bridge on the back of only one win in seven. A win over a poor Swansea side would be an almighty boost and even though the Swans have shown signs of improvement under Carlos Carvalhal, the Welsh outfit have only scored 13 goals in this campaign and they lost 1-0 to Newcastle at the Liberty Stadium in September. For example Iheanacho is a young player, arrived this season, and he will stay with us. The Blues have won seven league games on the spin in front of their own fans and they've conceded just three goals in the process.

We can get 6/5 on the Sportsbook that Chelsea Win to Nil and that's the bet that appeals most.

Chelsea's home form is another thing Leicester will have against them come kickoff. We're talking of course about backing Burnley away from home at what appears an overly-generous price. They come up against a Burnley side that has lost their way a bit, going winless in five, but their last three away fixtures have all ended in stalemates.

He also said China and Russian Federation , which have not been invited, will be briefed on the discussions after the meeting. However, both North Korea and the United States have shown a similar stance towards the plan, not responding to it.

The reason for that is Crystal Palace's much improved form of late but it's important to remember that the Eagles go into this game with a plethora of injuries and that the best of their recent good form has been away from Selhurst Park.

Chelsea only have one injury to worry about for the visit of the 2015/16 champions.

"In games against great teams, we have always had good solutions". They won't lack for incentive. Virgil van Dijk scored on his Liverpool debut, Phillipe Coutinho has joined Barcelona for €160 million, a war of words between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte has gone to a different level, VAR was used for an FA Cup game and League Cup game and Martin O'Neill has been heavily linked with the Stoke job after Mark Hughes was sacked last weekend. Leicester don't have a good record against Chelsea, having lost nine of their last 11 league matches against them.
