Chelsea are struggling in the Premier League, sitting 10th and only outside the bottom half of the table on goal difference. The Blues are also 11 points outside the top four and may not qualify for European football through their league position.

However, Graham Potter’s men will have been buoyed back the past few days. Firstly they ended a five-game winless streak in the league to beat Leeds United 1-0 at Stamford Bridge, though it was a nervy result. But then the big one came on Tuesday night. Trailing Borussia Dortmund 1-0 on aggregate and staring Champions League exit in the face, Chelsea beat the German side 2-0 at Stamford Bridge to secure their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the third consecutive season. They have also now won back-to-back games for the first time since October.

Looking to halt Chelsea’s potential resurgence while lifting themselves out of their own slump are Leicester, who sit on the periphery of the relegation battle. Although they are 15th, Leicester are just two points clear of the relegation zone and they’ve hit a bad patch of form at the wrong time.

The Foxes go into this game off the back of three straight defeats since thrashing Tottenham Hotspur in mid-February. The first two could perhaps be understood as Manchester United and Arsenal are in the top four, but last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Southampton reminded Leicester of the trouble they could be in.

Leicester vs Chelsea match stats

Chelsea haven’t won three consecutive matches since the start of Graham Potter’s reign, when they managed five in a row, but the Blues will be buoyed by Tuesday’s result. While they have struggled in attack of late, Chelsea have shown strength defensively, conceding just 25 goals in the Premier League – only Newcastle have conceded fewer. Leicester have also failed to score in each of their past three Premier League games.

One of the reasons for Leicester’s lack of goals has been the absence of real scoring opportunities. The Foxes have failed to have a shot on target in each of their last two Premier League games, and will be looking to avoid becoming the first team in the top flight to not have a shot on target in three consecutive matches since at least 2003/04.
