Kick-off: 1500, 12/05/2019
Stadium: King Power Stadium
Leicester have impressed since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers and are rated a value pick to end the season on a high note by seeing off Chelsea.
The visitors are already assured of a place in the top four of the Premier League and may be distracted by their Europa League exploits at King Power Stadium.
City prevailed at Stamford Bridge back in December and 21/10 for them to do the double over Maurizio Sarri’s side is our initial Leicester vs Chelsea prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester were far from disgraced when going down 1-0 to leaders Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Monday, where James Maddison and Kelechi Iheanacho had chances to score.
The Foxes were eventually undone by a stunning Vincent Kompany strike, but Maddison declared: “We were all up for it and we did well in parts.”
The midfielder also feels this will be a good test of City’s aspirations for next term.
He added: “We’ve proved in recent seasons that momentum going into a new season is massive. That is something we will look to do. We want to finish on a high and try to get more points.”
Leicester had previously made it six wins in nine games by beating Arsenal 3-0 at this venue and have been playing in a really positive manner under Rodgers.
Looking at the Leicester vs Chelsea odds, we like 7/2 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Evans, Pereira, Maguire, Maddison, Albrighton, Tielemans, Ndidi, Choudhury, Vardy.
Rodgers has no new injury issues as Matty James (Achilles) and Daniel Amartey (ankle) remain absent.
Danny Simpson and Shinji Okazaki will hope for farewell appearances, with both set to leave the club when their contracts expire in the summer.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea ensured they will finish in the leading quartet when beating Watford 3-0 on home turf, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, David Luiz and Gonzalo Higuain netting.
However, the Blues struggled for intensity at times, with Sarri believing a Europa League semi-final first leg at Eintracht Frankfurt three days earlier took its toll.
“We were in trouble because we were tired, physically and mentally,” said the manager. “But it’s not easy to play (again) after 60 hours.”
The fatigue factor will be an issue once more here following the return fixture with Frankfurt, especially after that tie went all the way to penalties.
Let’s finish off our Leicester vs Chelsea betting tips by taking 10/1 for a 2-1 home victory.
Last Chelsea line-up: Kepa, Alonso, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Higuain, Hazard, Pedro.
Andreas Christensen is a doubt for Chelsea after hobbling out of the Europa League game against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek should be available after coming off late on due to cramp, before the Blues advanced via a penalty shoot-out.
