Leicester and Chelsea return to action this weekend as two sides heading in opposite directions face off at the King Power Stadium, so it’s time for our Leicester City v Chelsea Premier League Betting Tips 20/11/2021. Leicester have struggled for form early in the Premier League season, while Chelsea have raced to the top of the table. Despite the contrasting form, the Foxes always carry the potential for an upset. But they will have to be at their absolute best to take anything from a rampant Chelsea. This fixture will kick off at 12:30 p.m Saturday and it is being broadcast on BT Sport.
Leicester’s four-match unbeaten run was ended by a recent 2-0 home loss to Arsenal, swiftly followed by a 1-1 stalemate against Leeds. Chelsea were stunned by a 1-1 home draw against Burnley last time out and the Blues’ seven-match winning run came to a crashing halt. Youri Tielemans is a doubt for the Foxes with a calf injury and Wesley Fofana (ankle), James Justin (knee), Marc Albrighton (knock) and Ryan Bertrand (knee) are ruled out. Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku, Mason Mount and Marcos Alonso could return, but Mateo Kovacic and Timo Werner are unavailable due to respective hamstring injuries.
Matchwinner Betting Odds
Firstly, the matchwinner market carries some good value this weekend. Leicester are outsiders following poor form at the King Power this season. The Foxes have won just once in their last seven at home and Bet365 are amongst the bookies offering the best odds of 4/1 for an unlikely home win. A draw has better value and this could be a more likely result. Brendan Rodgers’ side have drawn three of their last four in all competitions and they have drawn with or beaten Chelsea in five of the last seven head to heads. At 14/5, Spreadex are offering decent returns for a stalemate in Leicester. But it is difficult to ignore Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea on current for, and our matchwinner pick is an away win for this fixture. The Blues have won four of their last five in the top-flight and they have won their last three away without conceding. Another Chelsea win is likely this Saturday and SBK will return 9/11 for an away victory.
The both teams to score market is an interesting one for Leicester vs Chelsea as the sides favour contrasting approaches. A BTTS No would favour Chelsea as the West London side have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven in all competitions. Three of the last four meetings between these sides at the King Power have also ended in BTTS no and Betfair will return 1/1 odds for the same outcome this weekend. Our pick from the BTTS market though is to go with the two sides to find the net. Leicester are an all-action side, who have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last ten. They have also seen BTTS Yes in seven of their last eight in all competitions and SBK’s 11/12 odds reflect good value for another result where both teams get off the mark.
Anytime Goalscorer Betting Market
With both teams likely to hit the net at the King Power Stadium, greater value can be found in the anytime goalscorer market. Firstly, Jamie Vardy is always a good option and the veteran forward has been in decent form this season, scoring six goals in 11 Premier League appearances. At 13/5, Unibet will provide the best returns for Vardy to net again. Our goalscorer tip for this fixture is to back Chelsea’s stand-in forward Kai Havertz. The German international has played a more advanced role in the absence of Lukaku and Werner recently and the 22-year-old has scored three goals in his last five for club and country. 10Bet have the best odds for another Havertz goal at 12/5 odds.
Can Chelsea cement their place at the top of the Premier League with a win at Leicester? Or will the Foxes hold firm for a rare home win? Either way, we expect excitement and goals in the early Premier League fixture this weekend – a perfect way to return after an international break.
