Chelsea vs Leicester City Preview
Chelsea look in fine form this season, but hit a small dent with a 1-1 draw against Burnley at Stamford Bridge. The Blues were not able to convert their chances against a strong Burnley defensive unit, a worrying sight for Thomas Tuchel, who hopes to land his hands on the footballing crown of England. Chelsea would be hoping to bounce back against Leicester City, one of the most anticipated games for the gameweek 12.
The Foxes had a poor night against a struggling Leeds United side, being held to an action-packed 1-1 draw, a poor result for Brendan Rodgers and his side. Brendan Rodgers has been in the news, with links to the Manchester United manager job, but has to brace himself as he faces the league leaders Chelsea, a perfect audition would be to beat one of the fiercest rivals of his rumored next club.

Chelsea vs Leicester City Preview: Prediction
Chelsea and Leicester are very good on their day, but Chelsea’s defensive solidity in recent times has been a thing to cherish and be amazed by. The German manager has really made them a great unit and we believe that even one away goal would be enough to hand the West Londoners a win here. We go with a closely fought 1-0 win for the league leaders here.
