Leicester have played well and are a club on form. Chelsea are still fighting for that Champions League spot next season, which is well within their grasp. Can they clinch it with a final win? Here are our top Leicester v Chelsea betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
This match will attract a fair share of attention from both casual followers of the Premier League on the day and pundits. The home team are an improving side under Brendan Rodgers, the Northern Irishman arriving from Celtic earlier in the season and will want to go out on a high note, signing off with a win in front of their own fans. They can’t finish in the prize places this term but will have a major say in who does. If they can beat Chelsea at the King Power on Sunday and Tottenham win, the latter will leapfrog their neighbours in the table. It may be the final game of the season but there’s battles going on across the board.
A win for Leicester would also give them the chance to pass Everton and move into eighth place which, for a team who have gone through two managers this season, that would be a fine effort. They have suffered a mixed bag of results of late, however, winning two, losing two and drawing one of their last five. The Foxes were beaten by Man City on Monday night at the Etihad but didn’t disgrace themselves that night, remaining competitive before eventually going down to a winning goal from captain Vincent Kompany in the second-half. The Leicester home cheer is 47/20 – best price at Unibet.
Blues Battling for Third
At the time of writing, Chelsea have secured a top-four finish, ensuring we’ll have Champions League football back at Stamford Bridge next season and they are in with a chance of winning the Europa League. Not bad for a manager in Sarri who was favourite to be sacked just a couple of weeks ago. To make the Italian’s achievements even more impressive, he has done it without the backing from the board previous Chelsea bosses have enjoyed. The belief is the days of free-spending at Chelsea are over and the team must now operate within a budget – just like most others in European football. Are fans starting to warm to their manager?
Chelsea have won only one of their last four, but they did grab the spare last time out when hammering Watford 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Loftus-Cheek scored the opener that day and that was added to by goals from Luiz and Higuain, The Blues flexing their muscles to move into third, securing their place in the Champions League with a game to spare. Sarri spotted his players were tired and this will be their second game of the week again, which may put a few off backing them. It has been a long season for the squad fighting on both fronts and they will be relieved to get over the line. An away win is 6/5 with Bet365, but we’ll sit on the fence.
