Leicester City v Chelsea Preview, Premiership, Wednesday 29th April 2015

Leicester City can take a huge step towards safety with a victory on Wednesday night at the King Power Stadium when they play host against current league leaders Chelsea and with the side having recorded four straight wins on the bounce, the players will obviously be in confident mood about their chances.

Chelsea can take also take a huge step towards securing the Premiership league title with a victory on Wednesday night as Jose Mourinho’s side would have a 13pt lead over nearest challengers Arsenal and with just four games left to play, Chelsea would only need 3pts from those to add another title to the four they already have.

Leicester City Team News:

Manager Nigel Pearson has doubts over both Jeff Schlupp and David Nugent who missed the victory over Burnley with calf injuries. Jamie Vardy, who scored the winning goal against Burnley last weekend had to have a pre-match piankilling injection in his foot to play in that match and will again be assessed before the game to see if he can take part.

Chelsea Team News:

Manager Jose Mourinho will still be without Loic Remy for this game as he lacks match fitness having recently returned from an injury problem. Diego Costa has now fully recovered from his latest injury, but is unlikely to be risked in this game. Oscar has had no lasting effect from a head injury picked up in the 0-0 draw against Arsenal last time out and will once again lead the attack up front if Diego Costa is rested.

Leicester City v Chelsea Head to Head Statistics:

Wednesday night’s game from the King Power Stadium will become the 76th encounter between these two teams over the years. Leicester City have won 17 overall with 13 having came at the King Power Stadium, where as Chelsea have won 36 with just 9 having came at the King Power Stadium.

There has also been a total of 22 draws overall with 14 having came at the King Power Stadium.

23/08/03 PRL Chelsea v Leicester City 2 : 1

Our head to head statistics table above shows the last 5 meetings between the two clubs over recent season’s and as we can clearly see it has been Chelsea who have been the dominant force having won all previous 5 matches with Leicester City having won 0 and having only managed to score 6 times, compared to Chelsea’s 17.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the previous 75 meetings between these two teams there has been a total of 240 goals scored which provides us with an average of 3.20 goals per game.

113 of those Goals have came in the 46 previous meetings at the King Power Stadium and this generates us an average of goals per game statistic for this match of 2.45.

Both of sets of statistics seem to suggest that we will see over 2.5 goals scored bulge the back of the nets on Wednesday night.

Leicester City v Chelsea Match Betting Odds Market

Leicester City are in good form of late and will certainly believe they can win this game against the current league leaders, but their current best price of 9/2 with Paddy Power – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets for New Customers, does seem to reflect their chances as being slim at best.

The Draw is a more likely result based on both sides recent form and a point would be seen as a very good result for Leicester City so it could be a wise decision to have something on this game finishing all square at a current best price of 3/1 with Betfred – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets for New Customers.

Chelsea are the current clear favourites to win this game and with the season they have had so far it should not come as much of a surprise to anyone. Their current best odds to add another 3pts to their league tally is 8/11 with Ladbrokes – £25 Free Bets for New Customers and does look good value considering their squad is much more superior to that of their hosts.

Leicester City v Chelsea Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Leicester City do face a very difficult match on Wednesday night in front of their home fans at the King Power Stadium but with having won their last four games on the bounce the confidence through out the squad and the stadium will no doubt be high and with Chelsea looking likely to field Oscar as their main attacking threat due to injury problems to Costa and Remy, the hosts do have at least some small hope of causing a shock result.

Chelsea can move within touching distance of securing their fifth Premiership league title if they can secure maximum points from this game, but with the attacking lineup looking very much put together with attacking midfielders, Jose Mourinho’s side is certainly not as strong as it could be and with a 1-0 victory against QPR and Manchester United in recent weeks followed by a 0-0 draw against Arsenal last time out, Diego Costa and Loic Remy’s absence has been notable.

Onto some predictions then for the match and based on all the facts and statistics we have looked at my Banker selection is going to be for Both Teams to Score as I really do feel that Leicester City can get at least one goal during the 90mins.

My Saver is going to be for Jamie Vardy to Score at Anytime as although he will require an injection into this foot to play this game, he has been in great goal scoring form this season for his club and at his current odds available, does look good value to get his name on the score-sheet.
