Premier League Betting: Chelsea vs. LeicesterPublished December 14, 2015 by Sol FH
After a huge victory in the Champions League, Chelsea can prove critics wrong with a win against Leicester tonight at 20:00 GMT.
Chelsea are in a dismal spot in the Premier League. They find themselves in 16th place going into Matchday 16 and are in need of a big win tonight in Leicester. Jose Mourinho proved that his squad can win important games, as they beat Porto 2-0 in last weeks must win match in the Champions League, but they also need to win in the Premier League, which is proving to be easier said than done.
Leicester is now in 3rd place on the Premier League table, after being at the bottom last season and head coach Ranieri was actually fired from the Greece national team following a loss to the Faroe Islands. That is a perfect example of what Chelsea is going through, as tonight’s match could be the “tipping point” for the Blues to get back to winning. For Leicester, a victory tonight would be the first time this season that they have beaten a big-name team. They lost to Arsenal, were held to a draw against Manchester United, and still have yet to convince critics that they are worthy of their current table standings.
Tonight, Leicester have more to lose than what Chelsea currently has to gain. An inability for Leicester to beat Chelsea, while at home would be devastating to the team. On the other hand, a Chelsea victory would move them to the middle of the standings with 19 points and newfound hope in their ability to win. Either way tonight is going to be a huge match and one that you should not miss, if you love soccer.
