Chelsea FC vs Leicester City 18.05.2021

Chelsea have been on an upward trajectory since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel. They have slowly found their way back into the top-four contention as they currently sit fourth on the log, just two points behind Leicester with two matches to go. They also made it to the finals of the FA Cup which they lost to Leicester and they have a Champions League final against Man City coming up in the not-too-distant future. 

Leicester have also had an impressive first full season under Brendan Rodgers. They seem to a match made in heaven. They have maintained in the top four just about all season and they have had one hell of a run in the FA Cup culminating in their first-ever win in the competition with a clinical display against Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday, with Youri Tieleman’s well-taken goal just past the hour mark enough to decide the contest. 

Chelsea will have a chance for immediate redemption here. A win will see them move above Leicester heading into the final weekend of the season and a chance to seal their place in next season’s Champions League. With Liverpool lighting a match on their backsides, we expect them to go on the offensive from the get-go and we fancy them to exact revenge with a win here.
