Premier League Betting: Chelsea Takes on Leicester CityPublished April 29, 2015 by Amir G
Leicester City and Chelsea meet for a game that is all about the top and bottom (19:45 UK time).
The mid-week action in the Premier League is live today as the bottom scraping Leicester City takes on the undisputed leader Chelsea at King Power Stadium (19:45 UK time). The last five Premier League games between these teams ended in favor of Chelsea including this season's reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge which Chelsea won 2-0.
Leicester's Winning Streak
At the 17th position, Leicester sits on 31 points just one point away from Sunderland that is inside the relegation zone. After a rough patch, Leicester seems to have picked itself up from the dirt as it is currently going on a four match winning streak. What Leicester wants is to extend the gap between them and Sunderland and to distance themselves from any relegation worries.
Going up against the Premier's best team this season does not help Leicester's odds, but giant killings are a thing that you can never out rule. Leicester is facing injuries going into this game with David Nugnet and Jeffrey Schlupp out and Jamie Vardy also in doubt.
Chelsea's Title Race
Sunday's goalless draw against Arsenal at the Emirates was a breather for Chelsea seeing that the team that could have threatened the team's confident hold on the Premier's top failed to do that at home. Chelsea now has 77 points, opposed to the 67 Manchester City and Arsenal have.
Mathematically, all Chelsea needs right now is two more wins to complete cementing the pavement to this season's title. But the Blues cannot afford to be too cocky; Leicester is an improving team that is still fighting to get away from the relegation zone, with skilled players such as Esteban Cambiasso, Wes Morgan and Kasper Schmeichel at the goal.
