Chelsea vs Leicester: Predictions
Chelsea are currently enduring their first big slump under Thomas Tuchel’s tutelage, losing consecutive games to see their season hanging in the balance. On top of the FA Cup final defeat, the second consecutive year in which they finished runners-up, the Blues also lost to struggling Arsenal last time out in the Premier League.
As a result, they have seen their cushion in fourth place cut to just a solitary point over Liverpool, who produced two extraordinary wins since Chelsea’s defeat to Arsenal. Now, the Blues must win their final two games to guarantee a spot in next season’s Champions League.
For newly-crowned FA Cup holders Leicester, a repeat of Saturday’s result would be enough to secure their stop in the top four. It was a similar case for Leicester at this stage last season, but the Foxes lost three of their final four games to eventually finish fifth, four points below Chelsea.
Buoyed by the FA Cup, Leicester have won four of their past six games across all competitions including a 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford to put themselves in a good position.
Chelsea vs Leicester: Match Stats
After scoring four goals in two games against Real Madrid and Manchester City, Chelsea are now two matches without finding the net, drawing blanks against Arsenal and Leicester. Scoring hasn’t been Chelsea’s forte this season, but in a game that may see Leicester still suffering from their celebrations, the Blues will be hoping they can get a goal or two. Leicester have also won just two of their past 29 league games at Stamford Bridge.
In the FA Cup final at the weekend, a lot of Chelsea’s bigger chances fell to Timo Werner, with the German causing Leicester’s defence some serious problems. He didn’t manage to find the net but, if he plays, it could be a chance for Werner to impress the home crowd.

Leicester will be looking to do a treble over Chelsea this season after beating the Blues 2-0 at home in the league and winning the FA Cup for the first time in the weekend’s meeting. Chelsea will be hoping Leicester are suffering from hangover, as they look to end a six-game winless run against the Foxes.
