Premier League: Chelsea vs Leicester City - Betting Preview

Chelsea vs Leicester City takes place on Thursday, May 19th, at Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea. This will be the 37th league match for both teams, out of 38 scheduled fixtures in total.

Just a few points ahead of 5th-placed Arsenal, this is a very important match for Chelsea. Right now Chelsea are 3rd in the table with 70 points in 36 matches, while Arsenal are 5th with 66 points in 36 matches played. A win on Thursday could secure Chelsea's spot in the UEFA Champions League. 

Chelsea's left-back Ben Chilwell is expected to miss this match against Leicester due to injury. With this exception, all other Chelsea players are expected to be fully available for this important league fixture.

Leicester City currently sit 9th in the standings, with 48 points in 36 matches. This has been a disappointing season for Leicester, as the club expected better results in the Premier League. With two matches left in the season and eight points behind 7th-placed West Ham, Leicester will not be able to qualify for continental tournaments.

Wilfred Ndidi is dealing with a knee injury and will not be able to play this Thursday. All other Leicester players are expected to be available for this match against Chelsea.

Chelsea was the first team to score in five out of last seven times Chelsea and Leicester met. Leicester was the first team to concede in four out of last five matches played. There's a big chance Chelsea will be the first to score this Thursday. If that happens, it won't be a surprise, as Chelsea must win to secure a UCL spot.

We believe over 2.5 goals will be scored this Thursday.

Tip: Over 2.5 goals – odds: 1.72

A good score prediction for this match would be a 3-1 win for Chelsea
