betting tip & odds comparison 01/02/20 Leicester City - Chelsea FC

Betting Tip for matchday 25 of the 2019/2020 Premier League between Leicester City FC and Chelsea FC. The game will be played at King Power Stadium (Leicester, England) on the 01.02.2020 at 13:30.

Leicester - Chelsea

What an interesting tie to kick start matchday 25 as Frank Lampard brings his Chelsea side to the King Power Stadium to face Brendan Roger’s Leicester City. The hosts are in the third position on the Premier League table, eight points ahead of Chelsea in fourth. The match kicks off at lunchtime on Saturday.

 

Leicester City

After an outstanding first half of the season, Leicester have somewhat struggled of late. In 2020, they’ve only won three out of seven matches, with two of those wins coming against lower league opposition in the FA Cup. This run also includes back to back losses to Southampton and Burnley – both 2-1 losses – in the EPL.

After those consecutive losses in the league, Brendan Roger’s men bounced back with a 4-1 win over West Ham at home. However, they come into this match after missing out on an opportunity to reach the final of the League Cup, thanks to a 2-1 loss in the second leg of the semi-final tie against Aston Villa. That would have been a good opportunity for silverware this season.

Overall, the Foxes have accumulated 48 points from 24 matches, including 15 wins, three draws and six losses. They have the third-best attack in the league with 52 goals for, and the third-best defensive record in the league with 24 goals conceded. In their home matches, they enjoyed eight wins and two losses and draws apiece, and scored 24 goals and conceded 12 goals.

Speaking of goals, Jamier Vardy, their highest goal scorer – and the league’s too – may not be 100% fit as he made a return to health in his over 35 minutes appearance against Leicester. That said he only has one goal in his last six league appearances, so that’s a big concern for Brendan Rogers.

Chelsea

Chelsea’s last three matches thoroughly encapsulate the team’s inconsistent form this season. They conceded an injury-time goal to lose away at Newcastle, squandered the lead twice against Arsenal, despite being a man up for most of the game, and then they were put under immense pressure in their 2-1 FA Cup win over Hull City.

If there’s been a pattern to the team this season, it is dropping points; they consistently find a way to turn draws to losses and wins to draws. That said, rookie manager Frank Lampard has displayed fantastic management this season – the match away at Tottenham jumps to mind.

Overall, the Blues have earned 40 points out of a possible 72 points with 12 wins, four draws and eight losses. In those 24 matches, they have conceded 32 goals and scored 41 goals. Away from Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have performed admirably, winning seven of their 12 away matches, drawing only one and losing four matches. In those away matches, they’ve scored 25 and conceded 20 goals.

Chelsea will be without the services of Tammy Abraham who was injured in the draw against Arsenal. Reports are claiming Frank Lampard may ask him to play, in spite of the pain, against Leicester, but we would take that news with the proverbial pinch of salt. Abraham’s absence would make it more difficult for Chelsea to score goals.

Leicester City vs Chelsea Betting l Betting Predictions and Tips

Games between both sides have historically been tight. Four of the last five matches between the two clubs have ended in a draw, with the solitary win going to Leicester City. The last match between the two sides also ended up as a draw, with a 1-1 scoreline at Stamford Bridge. The last meeting at the King Power Stadium also finished in a goalless stalemate. Matchups between the sides have been notorious for producing very few goals.

The last five matches between the two sides have finished with less than 2.5 goals. So a punt on the goal market could be one of the most interesting sportsbetting tips here, particularly less than 3.5 goals. Betway offers you the following odds: Under 2.5 goals – 2.20; Under 3.5 goals – 1.49. Considering Leicester haven’t hit peak form in 2020 yet, a draw is also highly plausible, with a cautious lean towards Chelsea probably nicking it. 1xbet prices this market at 1.58 odds (Chelsea double chance).
