Chelsea will face Leicester City in the 23rd round of match of Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. The match is going to be really vital for the Chelsea side as back to back two 0-0 draws have put immense pressure on Antonio Conte. A win against Leicester City could provide them the much needed confidence that they would like to have under their belts before the important matches coming up next.

 

Chelsea are currently situated at third position in the League Table. They are just 1 Point behind their arch rival Manchester United with a game to play. They will surely try to climb up the ladder to catch Manchester City if possible.

 

Chelsea really need to win this match prior to facing Arsenal next in the League Cup semi final and will try their best to get a positive result at Stamford Bridge. If they drop any more points on the night, they might be more or less out of the title race, just like their domestic rivals Arsenal, who have faded away with time.

Manchester City is going all guns blazing and it will be really tough to catch hold of them, unless they really start dropping points and they will be facing Liverpool next. Hopefully, Liverpool can really pull off a miracle and make a difference to the title race.
