On February 1, Leicester City and Chelsea will take on each other in the match of the 25th round of the Premier League. The two teams are neighbors in the standings, occupying 3rd and 4th place respectively. So, it is expected to be a very entertaining game.
The Foxes are rightfully in the 3rd place with 48 points and a goal difference of 52/24 (scored/conceded). These are wonderful results, by the way. On January 23 in their latest home match they beat West Ham United (4:1). After that, Leicester had the so-called “warming up” matches against teams of lower leagues. For example, on January 25, on a visit Leicester defeated Brentford (0:1) in the FA Cup. However, 3 days later also on a visit the Foxes lost to Aston Villa (2:1) in the Carabao Cup.The team is in a good shape and there is no information about injuries.
The Blues are currently in the 4th position with 40 points. And as we can see, the gap between the 4th and the 3rd place is rather big. The goal difference for Chelsea is 41/32 (scored/conceded). Their latest home game was on January 22 against Arsenal and ended in a draw. After that, the Blues played in the FA Cup and won over Hull City (1:2). According to the information we have, there are no injured players in the team. So, taking into account the long break Chelsea had since their last match, players should be well-rested.
The upcoming match is going to be tough, but interesting and productive. Both teams are highly motivated, as Leicester need to strengthen their position, while Chelsea definitely want to climb up and trim the gap between them and the top three. So, we predict Total Over 2.5 goals for 1.64.
