Betting Tips: Defending Champs Host Leaders!
Supabets: Leicester Host Log Leaders!
Defending Premier League champions Leicester City host current leaders Chelsea at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. The Foxes have struggled so far in their title defence, while the Blues have been rampant for the most part. Following their loss to Tottenham recently, Chelsea will be looking to prove that the pressure is not getting time them.
Leicester v Chelsea (Premier League)
League rankings: Leicester 15th & Chelsea 1st (Serie A)
Useful facts: The defending champions have had it tough this season, as perhaps expected, and at this point, they don’t come tougher than a rampant Chelsea. The last time the two sides met, Chelsea hammered the Foxes 3-0 and it will take something special for Claudio Ranieri’s side to bring down the Blues. But having dumped Everton out of the FA Cup, rest assured they will give it a good go.
Sammy Troughton: Draw.
Vicarage Road Stadium will host the battle between Watford and Middlesbrough. Both teams have ambitions of retaining their Premier League status, and Watford will be hoping they can pull further away from the danger zone.

Useful facts: For both sides, this fixture is as important as a tussle between two sides at the top of the standings, as they want to avoid being dragged into a relegation dogfight. A win will be vital for either side. Both sides have been struggling to score goals and the possibility of the game ending in a draw is very real.
