Leicester City Prediction

Leicester City have made a significant improvement under manager, Brendan Rodgers, since he replaced former boss Claude Puel, but although The Foxes went on an impressive 4-match winning streak during March and early April with wins against Fulham, Burnley, Bournemouth and Huddersfield Town, the hosts have since registered just 1 more win from their subsequent 4 matches.

This further win came in the shape of a convincing 3-0 home win over Arsenal, but defeats to Newcastle United and Manchester City halted Leicester’s momentum and they now cannot grab 7th place as a result.

Leicester City occupy 9th place and possess a home record of 8-2-8 24/20 and one aspect that Rodgers will be keen to address for next season is their consistency at home. The turn of the year saw Leicester lose 4 on the trot, but they’ve since won 4 of their last 5 at the King Power.

The form of striker Jamie Vardy (18 goals) has definitely benefited from the arrival of Rodgers as he has scored 9 goals from the 9 matches that Rodgers has been in charge of. Incidentally, 9 of Leicester’s 18 home matches have ended over 2.5 goals.

Chelsea Prediction

Chelsea have already ensured a top four finish in the Premier League and a place in next season’s Champions League, but the visitors will have one eye on their upcoming Europa League final with Arsenal following their midweek win over German club, Eintracht Frankfurt.

However, Chelsea had to go to penalties to seal their progression through to the final of the competition, and manager, Maurizio Sarri may well rotate his squad accordingly ahead of this final day fixture at the King Power Stadium.

Chelsea have produced a pretty solid sequence of results in recent weeks as The Blues have lost just 1 of their last 7 matches overall in the top flight which was a 2-0 loss away at Liverpool, but wins against Cardiff City, Brighton, West Ham and Watford saw Chelsea finish their campaign in strong fashion.

Results away from home haven’t been so convincing though; the visitors have managed just 3 away wins from their last 9 matches on the road amidst an overall away record of 9-2-7 24/27.

Goals usually follow Chelsea on their travels though, with 12 of Chelsea’s 18 away matches resulting in over 2.5 goals.


Key-Facts – Leicester City v Arsenal

  • 9 of Leicester’s 18 home matches have ended over 2.5 goals in the EPL
  • 12 of Chelsea’s 18 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals in the EPL
  • The last 11 meetings between these two teams at Leicester have been over 2.5
