Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction at Leicester City


No team has won more Premier League games away at Leicester’s King Power Stadium than Chelsea has with four. They have the same status when it comes to across all competitions too, winning at the KP six times. Additionally, Brendan Rodgers still hasn’t won any of his 13 meetings against Chelsea as a manager.

So while the Foxes are looking down at the Blues one spot in the standings, and will have the crowd on their side on Saturday, they really aren’t favorites.

Still Chelsea has really struggled in scoring lately and that’s due to their inability to consistently finish their chances.

“It is a hard one,” said Blues boss Frank Lampard.

“We work hard in front of goal and it is not coming off for us. It is going to define you. I feel like a broken record. We have the larger share of possession and shots on goal but not making those count.”
