Chelsea v Leicester City Tips & Predictions
18th August 2019 – 16:30
Match Preview & Team News
Frank Lampard had to deal with a nightmare start to his Premier League managerial career as his Blues suffered a disastrous 4-0 defeat to Manchester United on an opening day at Old Trafford. It was an odd affair which saw Chelsea dominating the pitch in the first half as the likes of Tammy Abraham and Emerson both hit the woodwork. However, their back line fell completely apart later on allowing the Red Devils to score as many as four goals on the afternoon.
Chelsea did improve the impression significantly on Wednesday when they only lost the UEFA Super Cup tie to the Champions League holders Liverpool on penalties. They held the European champions to a 2-2 draw after 120 minutes of play. Nonetheless, the fatigue may play a role and affect their performance on Sunday afternoon when the Blues are in for a stern Leicester Cty test aiming to rebound from the aforementioned catastrophe at Old Trafford.
The Foxes have been an unpleasant opposition for Chelsea in recent years. They are unbeaten in last four clashes with the Blues and they have not lost a single game at Stamford Bridge since 2016. Brendan Rodgers’ men enjoyed a fine spell of form in the pre-season but they failed to break the deadlock in the goalless draw to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the start of the new Premier League campaign seven days ago at King Power Stadium.
Chelsea shipped at least two goals in each of the last five games in all competitions. This will be the music to the ears of Jamie Vardy who is 7/4 to find the back of the net on Sunday afternoon at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s defensive line has been anything but reliable at the start of the season. This is why we will back Jamie Vardy to score anytime for the visitors at the 7/4 odds.
