Leicester City vs. Chelsea Match Analysis and Prediction

With the onset of the winter break, Leicester will be looking to turn to win ways as they host the Blues at the King Power Stadium. With the race for top four heated than ever, Leicester will be looking to edge an inch closer to Manchester City. The match is scheduled for 1st February with kickoff at 12:30 GMT.

After a surprising early exit from the Carabao Cup semi-finals after a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa, Brendan Rodgers will be looking to secure a ticket to the Champions League. Leicester is third on the table and 22 points clear of title leaders Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers has managed to move past the injury over talisman James Vardy while recording three wins in their past five matches. The side has seen the growth of the squad with the likes of Madison, Barnes, and Tielemans stepping up.

Chelsea, on the other hand, is fourth on the table with 40 points. The Blues have failed to register a win in their past two Premier League matches. Frank Lampard has remained silent with the closing of the January transfer window without any additions.

Despite the heavy reliance on young talent, there is a need for reinforcements, especially with the attacking options. With the hamstring injury of talisman Tammy Abraham, Lampard has limited reliable attacking options.
