Chelsea vs Leicester City Preview: Verdy returns for crunch match


 
Posted 1 wk ago
 
 
 
 
 
Defending champions Chelsea are up against the 2015/2016 champions Leicester City today in one of the Premier League fixtures.

The Blues have won the last three Premier League meetings between these two and ran out 2-1 victors in the corresponding fixture earlier this season with goals from Alvaro Morata and N'Golo Kante.

Chelsea with just two losses in the last 22 games in all competitions have had four draws in the last six, including 3 on the bounce.

However, outside of the two goals given up to Arsenal in their first encounter of the year, Chelsea have kept Courtois’s goal on lockdown. 

Their main problem is their inability to score goals and they have managed back-to-back goalless draws for the first time in over five years.

Similarly, Leicester City had themselves a festive rough period with four losses in five games in the second half of December dropping them back a bit in the table. 

Still, they sit solidly in the middle with 8 wins, 8 losses, and a goal difference of +2. The 50-50 pattern continues across the home and away split, too, which will be something to pay great attention to, especially given their counter-attacking prowess.

A boost for them is the return to fitness of Jamie Vardy, who missed their FA Cup match with a minor groin injury and has a knack for scoring against the “big six” teams (including the last time he faced Chelsea). 


Team news

Chelsea are expected to field a full-strength side against Leicester. Captain Gary Cahill was rested for the midweek Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg with Arsenal and could return in defence.

Ross Barkley is expected to be fit to make his debut following a hamstring injury in Chelsea's FA Cup third-round replay with Norwich next Wednesday.

Jamie Vardy is fit again after missing Leicester's FA Cup trip to his former club Fleetwood.
