Chelsea vs. Leicester City

Chelsea vs. Leicester City

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson is backing the title holders to ease to an unconvincing win against the Foxes at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

JAMIE VARDY has recovered from the hamstring injury which forced him out of last Saturday's FA Cup tie against his old club Fleetwood Town.

The Blues have faced Arsenal twice in recent weeks, drawing 2-2 in the Premier League last week and 0-0 in the League Cup on Wednesday, while they were also held to a goalless draw by Norwich City in the FA Cup last weekend. For example Iheanacho is a young player, arrived this season, and he will stay with us.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has looked a little short of form lately, so with him struggling, and Leicester carrying plenty of attacking threat of their own, I fancy the Foxes to come away from The Bridge with a point.

Meanwhile, Danny Simpson faces a late fitness test on his hamstring.

Leicester City have won just once in their 11 previous Premier League visits to Stamford Bridge (W1 D3 L7) - winning 2-0 in September 2000, with Muzzy Izzet and Stan Collymore getting on the scoresheet. Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti also won 25, with Mourinho drawing and Ancelotti losing their 31st home games in charge.

And looking further down the English football pyramid it looks like being a tough punting weekend, so much so I've even taken a trip over to France (not literally, sadly) to pick out Nice as hopeful home bankers.

"He's an interesting player for the future and will be between the Under-23 and Premier League squad - he has quality to play in Premier League".

Author's Verdict: The in-form side, Chelsea are favourites to win the clash.

Puel said: "He can continue to make progress".

Spurs remain three points away from the top four, and need to get a win at Wembley to keep the pressure on the teams above them.
