Chelsea will play tomorrow, Saturday, against the former Premier League Champions, Leicester City, in the Premier League matchday 23 after less than 72 hours from the Blues match against Arsenal in the EFL Cup, Carabao Cup, semi-final.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Saturday, January 13 at 4:00 PM BST.
Where: Stamford Bridge (home)
Who will play?
Antonio Conte won’t play a weak squad against Leicester City, but also has to rotate due to the upcoming Norwich City match on the 17th, and the coming Premier League and EFL Cup match against Arsenal this month.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois
Defenders: Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, and Gary Cahill (captain).
Midfielders: Marcos Alonso, N’Golo Kante, Tiemoue Bakayoko, and Davide Zappacosta
Forward: Pedro, Eden Hazard, and Alvaro Morata
Chelsea has to win this match to be in the second place, at least temporarily, until Manchester United plays their match. We expect a 2-1 win for the Blues.
Chelsea has won in all the last 14 meetings with Leicester City in all competitions, except twice where Chelsea lost once and drew once in the season of 2015/2016, when Leicester City won the Premier League.
