Betting tips: Chelsea x Leicester

Check out our predictions of the day for Chelsea vs. Leicester

Prediction 1: Chelsea x Leicester / Chelsea to win

The two teams are heading into their match at Stamford Bridge in inconsistent form. Although Chelsea should be able to defeat Leicester with their current firepower, the Foxes are far from easy opponents. The last time Leicester triumphed against Chelsea was in the 20/21 FA Cup final when Leicester defeated Chelsea. The encounter between Chelsea and Leicester may be spectacular, as it shows if the Foxes are in a similar state when they go to Stamford Bridge.

Prediction 2: Chelsea x Leicester / Mykhaylo Mudryk Over 1.5 shots and Over 0.5 Shots On Target

Another high-priced, underwhelmed signing is Mykhaylo Mudryk of Ukraine, who has made 46 appearances but contributed to only 10 goals.

Nonetheless, he has shown flashes of genius, notably a magnificent solo goal in Monday night’s 3-2 victory against Newcastle.

He will likely get the nod to start again since he last started in the previous round’s match against Leeds. In a remarkable performance, the 23-year-old was used just off the striker and scored a goal. He also recorded two shots.

Mudryk has shown a desire to shoot despite his short playing experience. He averages 1.69 shots and 0.50 shots on target per 90. The stats may be biased since he has only played in late-game cameos, but I’m still confident in my bet after his performances against Newcastle and Leeds.

Prediction 3: Chelsea x Leicester / Both teams to score

After seeming to be in complete control of the Championship, Leicester’s recent slump has sent the pursuing pack nipping at their heels. Now, Enzo Maresca’s team is not only four points ahead of Ipswich but also three points ahead of Leeds. Even if they haven’t played in 12 games, you can still anticipate a solid squad since the league is their first goal.

Only three times this season have the Foxes failed to score, including a Premier League match against Bournemouth. In their previous 24 games, they have scored.

In their past three games, Chelsea let six goals in. Therefore, Leicester should be confident in scoring against this Chelsea defense. It will be difficult for Leicester to escape defeat against Chelsea, given that they have lost three of their previous five league games.
