The Premier League winners of 2 years ago take on the Premier League winners of last season. This is a game that might have impressed the neutral viewer a few years ago but at the moment it looks like it is a game between two sides that are not evenly matched. That being said, Leicester City are very strong at home and they can cause an upset against any team.
Leicester City play a very exciting style of football and out of circumstance, they have managed to hold onto both Mahrez and Jamie Vardy. This team has a lot of heart and the crowd gets behind the team really well. As a result of that, they are not an easy team to beat at home and I think they will be able to show that in this game against the West London side that will be visiting.
Chelsea on the other hand will hope that they can get a simple and easy win. This team is one of the most talented sides in the world at the moment and it seems like they have added well during the summer transfer window. This side has added a lot of depth and that means that even in these games they will be able to play a really strong side. I think they will be way too strong for their opposition and as a result I think they will win easily.
As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a really good price on this bet for Chelsea to win meaning that this is not a bet that I am suggesting. That being said, there is still a lot of value in this game in the form of the goals being scored. I think that both teams will score. Leicester City is a team that has quality meaning they can score and it seems very likely that Chelsea will do the same.
