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

Prediction: Chelsea vs Leicester City

Leicester City have won just once in their 11 previous Premier League visits to Stamford Bridge (W1 D3 L7) - winning 2-0 in September 2000, with Muzzy Izzet and Stan Collymore getting on the scoresheet.

Vardy, who turned 31 on Thursday, has recovered from the groin injury that kept the England worldwide out of the 2016 champions line-up for the FA Cup third round 0-0 draw with his former club Fleetwood Town last weekend. He'll be looking back on the 2004 Champions League campaign which saw Shels take on Deportivo La Coruna at Lansdowne Road. Conte has a very talented side and although they are not playing as well as Manchester City, they should be good enough to get a win in this game.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy will be fit to face Chelsea after recovering from a groin injury.

Whilst Antonio Conte's men have not managed to notch their first victory of 2018 yet, the champions have been in exemplary form. Midfielder Adrien Silva is set to make his first start for Leicester - he is the player they signed to replace Chelsea-bound Danny Drinkwater but missed the Federation Internationale de Football Association registration deadline by minutes on transfer deadline day. Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti also won 25, with Mourinho drawing and Ancelotti losing their 31st home games in charge.

On the other side of the coin, Chelsea are a side that will want to get an easy win from this game. Islam Slimani worked well in a mostly full strength Leicester side last time out, scoring two goals against Huddersfield Town.

Riyad Mahrez has been directly involved in 14 goals (7 goals, 7 assists) after 22 Premier League games this season; nine more than he had managed after as many games in 2016-17 (five - three goals, two assists).

"Before I watched the Carabao Cup semi-final with Arsenal I would have said Chelsea would win this 3-0, but I'm not so sure now", Merson told Sky Sports. The Foxes have also lost 12 of their last 14 games against the Blues, and away to "big six" sides they haven't won in 12 games and have lost five on the spin.

If they are to get a result at Stamford Bridge however, they do need to get to grips with defending their own goal.
