Chelsea Vs Leicester City Premier League LIVE Football Score 27 Aug 2022
PREDICTION AND WINNING ODDS
ABOUT THE MATCH
Chelsea is going head to head with Leicester City starting on 27 Aug 2022 at 14:00 UTC at Stamford Bridge stadium, London city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League.
Chelsea and Leicester City square off at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon with both teams having endured indifferent starts to the new Premier League campaign.
While the Blues have collected just four points from their opening three fixtures, the Foxes have posted just one draw, leaving the clubs in 12th and 19th position in the standings.
The transfer saga involving Wesley Fofana is inevitably going to dominate the build-up to this match with Chelsea attempting to sign the defender for a fee of at least £70m.
Nevertheless, both teams could do without the distractions given that they have recorded just one victory between them from their first triple-header.
From Chelsea’s perspective, everything was heading in the right direction after a 1-0 win at Everton and when leading Tottenham Hotspur deep into add-on time of their London derby.
However, a last-gasp equaliser from their rivals was followed by a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Leeds United, their defeat being deserved despite claims on the contrary by Thomas Tuchel.
Although Tuchel will likely add another three players to his first-team squad over the next week, this now feels like a Chelsea side very much in transition and who are yet to find a solution to their issues with scoring goals.
While injuries in midfield have affected them, that cannot be used as an excuse for Kai Havertz not making an impression in the final third, with only Raheem Sterling performing anywhere near to his ability in that area of the pitch.
As far as Leicester are concerned, they have been heavily reliant on James Maddison, who has netted in each of their games against Brentford, Arsenal and Southampton.
Kalidou Koulibaly serves a one-match ban with Marc Cucurella likely to drop into the back three and Ben Chilwell returning to the starting lineup against his former club.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek could replace Conor Gallagher in central midfield, but Havertz is expected to retain his place in attack ahead of Armando Broja, who is likely to feature in the squad after injury.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Cucurella; James, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Chilwell; Mount, Sterling; Havertz
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Ward; Castagne, Amartey, Evans, Justin; Ndidi, Dewsbury-Hall; Perez, Maddison,
