Leicester hosts Chelsea at the King Power Stadium on Monday night in the Premier League, as the home side look to maintain their lead at the top of the table.
Leicester moved to the top of the Premier League table last weekend with a 3-0 win at Swansea with Algerian international Riyad Mahrez grabbing his first ever hat-trick in senior football. The Foxes are now two points clear at the top of the top-flight table as their incredible campaign continues.
Jamie Vardy’s 11 game scoring run in the Premier League came to an end in the Swansea game, but the in-form striker did produce an assist for Mahrez though, which takes his tally for the season in the league to 12 goals and two assists.
Chelsea’s nightmare campaign continued last time out, as the reigning Premier League champions suffered a 1-0 defeat at home against Bournemouth. Former-Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray scored the only goal of the game on 82 minutes.
The defeat leaves Jose Mourinho’s side in 14th position in the Premier League, just two points clear of the relegation. The defeat also means that the Blues have collected fewer points than any reigning champion at this point of the campaign in Premier League history.

Recommended Betting Tip
Mahrez was in scintillating form last week but we are going for Vardy to get back on the goalscoring trail. A must back at 11/2 with Corals – Place Bet Here

Leicester v Chelsea Match Prediction

Leicester face a test of their title credentials as they host last season’s champions Chelsea. The Foxes are in blistering form and could well add to the Blues misery in this clash. Jose Mourinho’s team are bereft of confidence and the Foxes are in a great place to take advantage of the low spirits at Chelsea.
