Three key battles that will decide Chelsea vs. Leicester
Last season’s Premier League Champions Leicester host current leaders Chelsea today.
Both sides failed to win their previous league fixture, with Chelsea succumbing to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham – or more notably Dele Alli, who scored both of the Lilywhites’ goals – while Leicester were held to a 0-0 draw against an impressive Middlesborough side.
For the visitors, they will be hoping to put the defeat against their London rivals behind them and get back the form they showed just before the New Year when they won a record-equalling 13 straight Premier League games.
It’s a case of the opposites for Leicester, however, who, having defied all the odds to win the title last year, now find themselves back in more familiar territory as they sit a lowly 15th in the Premier League. While Claudio Ranieri’s side have excelled in the Champions League so far this term, they have been unable to reproduce that sort of form in domestic action.
All is set up for an interesting tie at the King Power Stadium, then and we think these THREE key battles could decide the result…
