Two of the struggling sides in the Premier League at the moment Chelsea and Leicester City, will go head to head on Saturday afternoon. The two teams will meet in the Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are going through what can be considered as a rocky phase at the moment. Antonio Conte’s men have been struggling quite a bit so far to develop some momentum, despite having a daunting forward attack. In fact, Diego Costa has scored six goals already this season, but his side’s lack of discipline in defense has been the problem for them.
A similar trait can be seen among the Foxes too, who have dropped points in their last couple of matches. They lost to Liverpool and Manchester United by 4-1, which they followed with a goalless draw against Southampton. Islam Slimani has been their sole key performer in terms of being consistent. However, if they want to finish at least in the top four, a massive turnaround is needed from Leicester City.
The two teams last met in League Cup, where the Blues won 4-2. However, considering the encounter in the Premier League last season, Leicester had the upper hand with a draw and a win from the two legs. It will be hard for them to repeat the same feat now too. This match can go either way, but Chelsea have the upper hand.
Chelsea will host Champions, Leicester City giving them an entry with the guard of honour something that they received exactly a year ago. This game will kick off at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, May 15th 2016 at 15:00 hours BST.
Chelsea will be gutted after giving away a last minute equaliser against Liverpool at Anfield during their midweek game. The only positive for the team and supporters is that Eden Hazard seems to have found his feet and that could prove crucial for next season. John Terry will miss the last game due to suspension while Diego Costa, Brainslav Ivanovic and Oscar who were out during midweek could all be back. This will also be the last match for interim boss, Guus Hiddink.
Leicester will want to end such a dramatic season on a high. Surely it can't higher than what it already has, but a win at the former champions' home will be the icing on the cake. They will have a full strength squad and will be looking to come out all guns blazing the way they have throughout the season. Jamie Vardy and Riyad Maharez will be the ones to watch out for. Claudio Ranieri has been a revelation and a win in this last game will possibly be the only be a fitting end to a dream run.
Leicester City go into this as favourites on account of being in very good form. With Chelsea having nothing to fight for, they could land up handing the game over to Leicester City.
The second fixture of the English Premier League’s Game week Two will be played between Chelsea and Leicester City at Stamford Bridge, London. The kick off is scheduled at 15:00 (GMT) on 23rd August, 2014.
Against Burnley, Chelsea went all guns blazing for the first half an hour scoring three goals in the process. The cracking opener by Burnley’s Scott Arfield was not enough for Burnley to shake the London giants. Diego Costa fired home an equalizer minutes later. Later, Cesc Fabregas showed why he can still be the top dog in the Premier League with two beautiful assists.
If Fabregas and Co. Keep their form throughout the season, title is theirs to lose being the most balanced squad in England.
The new boys, Leicester ruffled a few feathers against Everton and managed to get a point from the home game last Saturday. This time they face even more classy opponents in Chelsea. Big game for them.
A last gasp equalizer did save Leicester but all that was down to the fighting spirit showed by the squad. Both their strikers, Chris Wood and Leonardo Ulloa found the net which looks promising.
