Chelsea vs Leicester Preview
Chelsea finally managed to beat someone – Hull City – after losing to Liverpool and Arsenal and therefore suffering a major cold shower after an initial good start to the season. The tone of Antonio Conte has changed and now he’s talking about things that need to be corrected and is saying he’ll need more time to make the team play the way he wants them to. The bright spot in Chelsea is definitely the form of Diego Costa who has managed to find the net in almost all matches he’s played this season.
Leicester are failing to replicate their last year’s form, and that was expected. They’re playing well in Europe though, once again showing they perform best against teams who don’t yet know them.
Chelsea vs Leicester Prediction
Leicester will want to play their usual low-scoring game where they sit back and hope Mahrez and Vardy can do something rapidly up front. Chelsea shouldn’t be too vulnerable to that game style, though they did lose to Leicester 2-1 away last season and played 1-1 at home. Chelsea should have the upper hand here, though scoring will be difficult to find on both ends.
Chelsea vs Leicester Betting Tips
Chelsea are priced as if Leicester were no good. Probably because of the Manchester Utd result when Leicester were thrashed in the first half. And now for the betting tip – the bookmakers are a bit wrong when it comes to over/under betting. They’re favoring the over 2.5 goals option, and that makes no sense. This game is going under and you’ll get 2.300 at PINNACLE for that.
Match starts on Saturday 15 October 2016 at 12:30 BST.
