Monday night football live from the King Power Stadium where surprise package Leicester City will take on the defending champions Chelsea. Leicester City have been the surprise package of the year and a win here will put Leicester back on top of the league. Jamie Vardy had a historic start to the season scoring in a record twelve games in a row but his consequtive goals and games streak ended last week, luckily for Leicester it didnt seem to matter to the team or the player himself as Leicester hammered Swansea 3-0 last week. With Ranieri at the helm and the form of Mahrez , Vardy, Kante and drinkwater this is a team that is going to take some stopping. At home they have four wins, two draws and one loss. There is no doubt in my mind that this Leicester team is still being under estimated by the bookmakers and at 2/1 there has to be value there.
Chelsea though come into this game off the back of a good home win against Porto but all is not right at Stamford Bridge and Jose Mourhino's side are incredibly only one point above the relegation zone. A win here would go a long way to moving the blues back in the right direction , with a busy Christmas period almost on top of us this is a time of the year that players, managers must be focused. Diego Costa, Hazard and Fabregas are struggling for form and in essence Chelsea are struggling because of it, Willian has been the blues best player this season but Chelsea need more from their stars and I will be intereested to see what team Mourhino starts here at Leicester.
Going to take both teams to score here, I think Leicester could easily get the win here but more likely is a score draw for me Chelsea have shown signs of turning things around offensively but they are stil really struggling defensively.
