Match : Leicester vs Chelsea
Competition : England – FA Cup
Time / Date : 18:30h / 18 March 2018
Venue : King Power Stadium
Leicester put in another solid performance last weekend as they hammered the dismal West Brom 4-1 at The Hawthorns, extending their unbeaten streak to four competitive matches and leaving them 8th in the Premier League table, with a shot at European qualification a possibility heading into the final weeks.
The FA Cup also provides a potential gateway to Europe, but first they must get past Chelsea to make it to Wembley for the semi-finals. Claude Puel comes into this game with an in form side who look hungry for silverware again though, so they could be in with a chance.
Chelsea were dumped out of the Champions League in midweek and are currenly outside the top four. They need to win the FA Cup to salvage what has been a miserable season.
Antonio Conte’s side have lost their last five away matches, which is a first since losing six in a row in 2000. They have won their last three at the King Power Stadium but can expect a difficult contest here

Chelsea have won four, drawn two, and lost one of their last seven meetings with Leicester.
All signs point towards a high scoring affair on Sunday. Chelsea have seen at least three goals in five of their last six away games, and four of Leicester’s seven hostings of the top five Premier League teams this season have seen three or more scored. This makes an Over 2.5 Goals bet look the best value for money.
