International break is (finally) over. Chelsea plays against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, but both teams desperately need 3 points. Can you feel the adrenaline??
Blue — the color of crisis
Both Chelsea and Leicester seem to be in crisis. But which team is in bigger trouble? Well, I think that Chelsea is. I know that Chelsea has more points than Foxes, but they are much below the desired level. Antonio Conte’s perfect tactic developed on Serie A pitches, works terrible in Premier League. Maybe it’s because of poor performance of defenders in The Blues squad — Cahill and Luis play like they missed all of the tactic trainings or maybe Premier League it’s just much harder league than the Italian one. This match shall give us all the answers…
Difficult match for Kante
The Frenchman’s had a mixed start in west London since he has sealed a £30million move from the King Power Stadium last summer. Conte is yet to gain momentum with the Blues but Kante’s remained a constant during the side’s stuttering start. Saturday’s game is an opportunity for the French to show he’s made the right decision by leaving the Foxes.
My squad prediction:
Chelsea: Courtois; Luiz, Terry, Cahill; Azpilicueta, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Moses, Hazard, Costa
Leicester: Schmeichel, Simpson, Huth, Morgan, Fuchs, Mahrez, Drinkwater, Amartey, Albrighton, Ulloa, Vardy.
Score prediction: 3:1 for Chelsea!
