Chelsea must recover from a heavy defeat

While they approached this season with high hopes, the Blues are disappointing for the moment with only 4 points taken in 3 games. Above all, Tuchel’s men were crushed by Leeds last weekend (3-0). In the previous match they were certainly equalized by Tottenham in the 96th minute of play, thus coming very close to victory.

At Stamford Bridge in front of their home crowd, Chelsea cannot afford to miss any more points, especially against an opponent in great difficulty at the start of the season. Last season the Blues conceded a draw at the end of the season against Foxes (1-1) after a big away victory in the first leg (0-3) with goals from Antonio Rüdiger, N’Golo Kanté and Christian Pulisic.

In the absence of Kalidou Koulibaly suspended, Cucurella could step back a notch with Chilwell taking his place on the left side. For the rest, Loftus-Cheek should hold the midfield and Havertz again line up in front of a Mount – Sterling duo.

Leicester miss out on start to season

Opposite, the start of the season is very worrying for Leicester who already have 2 defeats and only one point taken, only West Ham are doing worse. During the first day they obtained an inglorious draw against Brentford (2-2) before conceding two consecutive defeats against Arsenal and Southampton. Leicester are very feverish defensively with already 8 goals conceded this season. Suffice to say that Brendan Rodgers has his work cut out for him.

This week in the Carabao Cup they had to go to penalties to defeat Stockport County, a fourth division team despite two missed shots on goal. Certainly with a heavily overhauled team.

Our prediction: Chelsea win!

Chelsea are of course favorites in this game and the reception of Leicester seems perfect to find the way to victory and start their season. We see a victory for the Blues without surprise.


Chelsea – Leicester: the probable line-ups

  • Chelsea: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Cucurella; James, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Chilwell; Mount, Sterling; Havertz.
  • Osasuna: Ward; Castagne, Amartey, Evans, Justin; Ndidi, Dewsbury-Hall; Perez, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy.
