Leicester welcome Chelsea tonight knowing a victory over Frank Lampard’s side will propel them to the top of the Premier League.

Mason Mount, who scored the winner against Fulham on Saturday, has had 34 shots on goal this season. In the Chelsea squad, only Timo Werner (41) has had more. Meanwhile, Jamie Vardy has had the most shots on target of any Leicester player this term (22), and ranks sixth in the entire league for that particular statistic. You can get a price boost 9/1 on Vardy 2+ shots on target and Mount 1+ shot on target in tonight’s fixture.

If narrative is your thing, you might fancy Ben Chilwell to haunt the Foxes on his first return to the King Power Stadium since a £45million move to Chelsea in the summer. The 24-year-old, who has two already this term, is a price boost 9/1 to score against Leicester (was 5/2).

Meanwhile, Vardy is a price boost 3/1 to score in a Leicester victory (remember, Brendan Rodgers’ side are five unbeaten). Tasty odds when you consider Vardy has the Premier League’s highest xG across the whole 2020/21 campaign.

Fancy some goals? Chelsea have scored in 78 per cent of their away matches and Leicester have scored seven in their last four home matches. A Leicester win and both teams to score is priced at 4/1, while Chelsea to win and both teams to score is 3/1.
