12:30 Kick Off on 1st Feb
Leicester vs Chelsea Match Details
Leicester vs Chelsea kicks-off at the King Power Stadium at 12.30 on Saturday 1 February. The match is being broadcast on BT Sport 1.
Following title-ending defeats by Manchester City and Liverpool, Leicester are in the middle of their worst run of the season having since lost league games to Southampton and Burnley and missed out on the chance to play in the EFL Cup final after losing to Aston Villa in midweek. But it’s not all bad, as they’ve also beaten West Ham (twice), Newcastle, and Brentford during that run.
But with 14 Premier League games to go, Leicester are still 14-points clear of the teams in fifth, sixth, and seventh place. The fact Brendan Rogers also didn’t start Jamie Vardy against Aston Villa or Brentford in the FA Cup suggests a Champions League spot remains the number one priority.
The biggest Leicester trend at the moment is there has been more than 2.5 goals in their last seven Premier League games.
Chelsea have gone from hot to hot and cold in recent weeks, best highlighted by stats of four defeats, three wins, and two draws in their last nine Premier League games. They’ve also taken just one point from their last two away games against Brighton and Newcastle. What is a plus point for Frank Lampard’s Blues is they’ve beaten both Arsenal and Tottenham on their travels recently.
Leicester vs Chelsea Head-To-Heads
Leicester and Chelsea have played each other 27 times in the Premier League with Chelsea winning 14 of those matches to Leicester’s five, whilst eight have been draws.
Chelsea have recorded seven of those wins in 13 away matches against Leicester, whilst Leicester have won three times at home and drawn three times.
But Chelsea’s superiority has been diminished recently, and they’ve won none of the four Premier League encounters. Leicester have recorded the only victory in that time, a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge in December 2018, whilst the other two matches played at Chelsea have ended 0-0 and 1-1. Last season’s match as the King Power Stadium also ended 1-1.
