Betting tips and match preview | Premier League

Chelsea welcome Leicester to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, with both sides looking to register a win after the international break.

Antonio Conte’s men come into this match on the back of a 2-0 win against Hull City, prior to the international break.

Two goals in six minutes from Willian (61) and Diego Costa (67) ensured Chelsea did not lose three successive Premier League games.

Hull were resolute in defence, with Chelsea struggling to break them down until the hour mark.

Back In Form

That win will have delighted Antonio Conte however, with his side enduring two successive defeats prior to that game.

Defeats at home against Liverpool and away to Arsenal have cast some doubt on Chelsea’s title capabilities.

Chelsea had enjoyed an excellent start to the season, they were undefeated after their first four matches.

Their overall record is mixed this season, with four wins, one draw and two defeats but they still have plenty to play for.

Chelsea Favourites

Conte’s side are 7th in the Premier League, level on points with Manchester United and five points off leaders Manchester City.

They will go above Manchester United and Everton into 5th with a win, in the process consigning Leicester to two defeats at the Bridge this season.

Their recent record against Leicester is mixed, they have drawn, lost and won in each of their last three meetings.

Claudio Ranieri’s Champions have in truth struggled to maintain any level of consistency this season, in the Premier League at least.

In the Champions League they have been much more like the side of last season, registering two wins in their opening two matches.

European Boost

Leicester have enjoyed a mixed season so far, they have already lost as many games as they did throughout the whole of last season.

Their European progress has been exceptional though, with a comprehensive 3-0 win away against Club Brugge in their first ever Champions League match.

They followed that up with a hard fought 1-0 win against Porto at the King Power Stadium.

Chelsea Favourites
