Chelsea vs Leicester Preview and Prediction:

 Competition Premier League
Start Date 13 Jan 2018 – 15:00 GMT
Venue Stamford Bridge
 Referee Mike Jones

the previous two Premier league champions face off on saturday as chelsea host leicester at stamford bridge.

antonio conte’s 2016-17 title winners host 2015-16 champions leicester, although neither side is possibly to raise the trophy this season with manchester city going for running away on the top of the table.

however there is still plenty to play for this term, with chelsea seeking to leapfrog manchester united into second vicinity and claude puel’s foxes aiming to put distance between themselves and the bottom half of the table.
