Our football match prediction:
Leicester City square off against Chelsea at their King Power Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturday’s program. The reigning champions take on the league leaders on Matchday 21 and, no doubt, there will be fireworks when the two teams face each other in the Premier League derby. Following a hard-fought 1-0 win over West Ham United, Leicester City played out a goalless draw with Middlesbrough in their last league fixture and we predict that the hosts will rely on their solid defence in Saturday’s football game. Claudio Ranieri’s men are tough to beat at home and they are certainly capable of grabbing something from the clash. Chelsea are enjoying a season to remember and they are leading the chase for the Premier League trophy after 20 rounds. The Blues, though, were beaten by Leicester City in their last meeting at King Power Stadium and that is the main reason why away win should not be considered.
Highlighted Player (Andy King):
Born in Barnstaple, England on 29 October 1988, Andy King is a Welsh professional footballer famous for only representing one club in his career. The midfielder had began his youth career at Chelsea, but moved to Leicester in 2004 and he was handed his first professional contract in May 2007. He has since represented Foxes in League One, Championship and the Premier League, making over 300 league appearances and scoring more than 55 goals in the process. While he was not exactly a first team regular during the 2015/2016 season that will forever remained etched in the memory of Leicester City fans, King made over 20 league outings to help the Foxes lift the coveted trophy for the first time in history. Meanwhile, he has made more than 30 appearances for the Welsh national team, starting no fewer than five games as the Dragons secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash. After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
