Venue: King Power Stadium

Premier League football is back, and after a week of being away to international football, the Blues have an away game at Leicester on Saturday.

After three rounds of matches, Chelsea are sixth on the table with six points, while Leicester are 15th with only three points.

Leicester City have only been able to get points against Brighton, but they lost to Arsenal on the opening day of the season and lost to Manchester United on Match Day 3. Chelsea on the other hand overcame an opening day defeat to Burnley and defeated Tottenham and Everton afterwards.

Chelsea defeated Leicester City 3-0 both home and away last season, and in the last six league meetings with the Foxes, the Blues have won four, drawn one and lost only one – the draw and loss coming in Leicester’s title-winning season, which was Chelsea’s struggling season as well.

Chelsea have defeated Leicester City 11 times in the last 13 meetings in all competitions.

Chelsea have been dominant at the King Power Stadium and have won five of their last six away matches against the Foxes, scoring at least three goals in each of them.

Chelsea have a poor away Premier League record in the month of September, as the Blues have not won a Premier League away fixture in the month of September in any of the last four seasons (D4, L3).

However, the Blues have won six of their last seven Premier League away matches, with the only exception being a 2-0 defeat at Manchester United in April.

Match Prediction: I expect Chelsea to continue their good form against Leicester and also keep a clean sheet. The mood in the Chelsea camp is high and I’m tipping Conte’s men to win 2-0.
