Chelsea vs Leicester City Match Analysis and Prediction

The race for the top four gets intense this week in the Premier League as Chelsea seek redemption against Leicester City after the FA Cup loss. The match schedules for Tuesday at Stamford Bridge, with a kickoff at 10:15 pm.

Leicester City landed their first FA Cup victory at Wembley last weekend with a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea. A win this Tuesday marks a quick turnaround in both their top-four hopes.

Chelsea had a golden chance to move above Leicester City before the FA Cup final. However, a 1-0 loss to Arsenal after a Jorginho mistake cost the Blues a chance to secure their top-four credentials.

Furthermore, things took a turn for the worse at Wembley Stadium after a rocket strike from Youri Tielemans proved the difference in the finals. Many Chelsea fans left laminating after a possible handball by Prez before the match-winning goal. Additionally, a VAR decision ruling out a Ben Chilwell goal.

After a triumphant charge at Stamford Bridge, Thomas Tuchel is under immense pressure to bounce back. However, a lot remains at stake with a top-four finish and Champions League final at stake.

On the other hand, it was a jovial moment for the Foxes, who landed their second silverware since their Premier League win in 2015. However, despite the win and fatigue, all attention turns to qualification for a Champions League spot.
