The stakes are higher for the visiting team in this game as they are the underdogs in this game because of their previous performances in this venue against the home side.

It is expected that there would be an average of 2.5 goals in the last Leicester’s games the question is whether or not, Leicester would be in the receiving end?

(IndiaFantasy suggests picking more players of CHE over LEI)
*(The aforementioned players are selected on the basis of their performance in their last match)
A 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday night means Chelsea have won only two of their last six competitive matches. However, on home turf, the Blues have been in fine form, failing to win only three of their last 12 in all competitions at Stamford Bridge.
Leicester have lost back-to-back away league matches and have lost six of their last seven competitive meetings with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. They recently ended a four-match winless run in the Premier League with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Huddersfield, though, and will look to use that as a platform to spring an upset here.
Leicester may trouble this Blues backline, but Chelsea have the means to wrap up all three points.
