Maddison Leicester 2021

Leicester City have the chance to move top of the Premier League table when they welcome Chelsea to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.

However, having gone seven matches without a home win against this opposition, they are slight 15/8 (2.88) outsiders with bet365 to climb into first place with a big win.

Frank Lampard’s team secured just a second victory in seven league fixtures by beating 10-man Fulham at the weekend and are available at 11/8 (2.38) to follow that up by claiming three points here.

Three of the last four encounters between this pair have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on them cancelling each other out once again.

Jamie Vardy will face a late fitness test after coming off with a hip injury in Saturday’s win over Southampton, while Dennis Praet is ruled out.

N'Golo Kante is available once again to face his former club after missing the win over Fulham due to suspension, leaving Andreas Christensen as the only doubt.

The Blues will have been relieved to leave Craven Cottage with three points on Saturday, when Fulham more than held their own in the first half and were eventually made to pay for Antonee Robinson’s reckless red card.

This trend of starting slowly will be a concern for Lampard given his team has only scored three first half goals in their last nine league matches, and failed to score before the break in five of the most recent seven.

However, they may well need to remain patient against Brendan Rodgers’ men, who have only conceded before half-time twice in nine fixtures - albeit scoring just two of their last 10 goals in the opening 45 minutes themselves.

With plenty at stake as the two top four rivals battle for a vital three points, even money (2.00) seems like good value on the majority of the goalmouth action not unfolding until the second half for the third meeting in a row between Leicester and Chelsea.

All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
