Chelsea and Leicester meet in the postponed game of the 27th round of the Premier League. Chelsea can’t boast of good form lately, and it will be interesting to see if Thomas Tuchel will lead the Blues from the bench next season as well. For Leicester, this is a season to forget, and we will not watch them in European competitions.

Reason for Chelsea vs Leicester Predictions
Chelsea is on a favorable tie but still has to ensure their qualification for the next Champions League. Less to their advantage since the return from the international break in March, the Blues have lost three times in the last eight days, for three wins and two draws. After having chained three games without success, they reacted by winning easily at the poorly ranked Leeds 0-3. Last weekend, Chelsea was once again unlucky in the Cup final against Liverpool. Already beaten in the League Cup on penalties at the end of February, Thomas Tuchel’s men fell again against the Reds in the FA Cup final 0-0, defeat following penalties. For Chelsea, long-absent full-back Chilwell and usually back-up winger Hudson-Odoi remain stranded in the infirmary. More to his advantage these days, Romelu Lukaku has scored three goals in the last two league games. He should be supported by the club’s child Mason Mount. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an amazing player and is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. He should improve on his performance from last season. N’Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
Leicester has disappointed this season and is now only 9th in the Premier League, with no hope of winning a folding seat in Europe. The Foxes never found the right carburetion. After having chained five games without a win, two draws, and three defeats, they resumed their march forward during the last two days. Leicester is resting on successes gleaned from doomed Norwich 3-0 and Watford the previous weekend 1-5. Leicester remains deprived of the influential midfielder Ndidi, the substitute defender Bertrand and the fragile side Ricardo Pereira (ex-Nice), all injured. Completely recovered from his physical glitches for a few games, Jamie Vardy (14 league goals) remains on two doubles against Norwich and Watford. He should be supported by the important Maddison and Barnes, who also scored last weekend. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Kelechi Iheanacho enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has a problem.
It will be an exciting clash, as Leicester is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Chelsea should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
