Leicester City host Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend and the Foxes will be searching to extend their contempo best run with a absolute aftereffect at home.
The arresting champions accept had a actual poor division so far and are 15th in the Premier League table afterwards declining to win 15 of their aboriginal 20 games. However, they accept apparent some advance afresh and are branch into this bold on the aback of a three-match best run.
The aloft draft for the home ancillary will be the absence of Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani, both of whom are abroad on all-embracing assignment with Algeria at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Leicester accept followed up their beauteous 2015/16 celebration with black calm anatomy that has “pained” Claudio Ranieri as the appellation holders sit six credibility aloft the assignment area in 15th position.
But the Foxes’ superb Champions League anatomy proves that they can still about-face on the style, and Ranieri will be bent to put a cavity in accessory Conte’s hopes of demography his Premier League crown.
itting in 15th abode in the standings and alone six credibility bright of the assignment zone, Leicester City accept begin their appellation defence conceivably even harder than they could accept imagined. Claudio Ranieri’s men accept so far absent 5 and won alone nine Premier League matches admitting their on-the-road struggles accept been pinpointed as the better botheration appropriately far. Together with Burnley, Foxes are the alone Premier League ancillary yet to win abroad and the Saturday’s affray with Chelsea will be a acceptable befalling for Leicester to get their aftereffect for the 3-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge aback in October. Foxes’ inconsistence gives us little acumen to feel optimistic about and it will be acutely absorbing to see how the hosts will cope after three important first-team associates out on all-embracing duty.
Chelsea’s almanac equalling acceptable band in the Premier League came to an end endure Wednesday as Mauricio Pochettino masterminded a 2-0 win at White Hart Lane. Chelsea bounced beeline aback with a 4-1 annihilation of Peterborough in the FA Cup, and they accept now won 11 of their endure 12 amateur in all competitions.
Away from home it’s a agnate story, with six wins and one defeat in their endure seven Premier League abroad games. They accept kept a apple-pie area in 5 of these seven matches, whilst Diego Costa has been the capital man at the added end of the pitch. Eight of Costa’s 14 Premier League goals accept appear on his travels.
Generally Chelsea accept been a bit added bourgeois on the alley this season, but it’s no abruptness accustomed how acknowledged it’s been. There accept been beneath than three goals in six of Chelsea’s endure seven abroad canicule and with Leicester missing Islam Slimani and RIyad Mahrez due to the African Cup of Nations I can see them disturbing to acquisition the net adjoin the defensively complete Chelsea.
Leicester City to abatement abbreviate here. They are missing a amount of key players and face a Chelsea ancillary who accept been in animated form. Chelsea accept conceded 5 goals in their endure three games, their defence had alone been breached alert in nine amateur antecedent to that run, so Leicester will feel they accept a adventitious of award the aback of the net here
