What Trueform says for Chelsea vs Leicester

Chelsea have achieved the three highest ratings on our Trueform chart and that makes them hard to oppose when hosting Leicester at Stamford Bridge.

The Foxes were convincing 3-0 winners against Huddersfield in their last Premier League game but have suffered four straight defeats when meeting the Blues.

We’re kicking off our Chelsea vs Leicester betting predictions by taking 13/2 for a repeat of last season’s 3-0 home win in the corresponding fixture.

A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds

Chelsea are coming off a couple of cagey 0-0 stalemates with Norwich in the FA Cup and Arsenal in the EFL Cup, but we’re expecting a step up in intensity now back in league action.

Antonio Conte’s side had previously taken part in a classic encounter with the Gunners when drawing 2-2 at Emirates Stadium in this competition.

That followed Stamford Bridge victories over Brighton and Stoke, with seven goals scored and none conceded, making it seven straight Premier League wins on home turf.

Attack-minded wing-back Marcos Alonso has scored in three of his last five league games, so 5/2 he nets again here takes the eye from the Chelsea vs Leicester odds.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

Leicester also drew a blank in the FA Cup when held to a goalless draw at Fleetwood, with key front men Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez missing that trip.

The vibes are that both will return to action here, but Vardy has been nursing a groin problem and Mahrez may be distracted by continued speculation over an imminent move to Liverpool.

The Foxes have only failed to score once in their last 10 league outings, but any issues involving that pivotal pair will severely hamper their attacking prowess.

We’re finishing off our Chelsea vs Leicester betting tips by taking 14/1 for Alvaro Morata to score first in a 3-0 home win.

The Spaniard was guilty of missing several good chances in the recent draw at Arsenal and will be keen to make amends.
