The Leicester vs. Chelsea match will be played on Sunday, March 18, at the King Power Stadium, Leicester. This is the FA Cup quarterfinal. In English Premier League, Leicester is currently 8th on the table with 40 points, while Chelsea is 5th with 56 points.


  • Leicester is in a series of four games without a defeat in all competitions. They scored at least one goal in their last ten games.
  • Chelsea won only one out of their last five matches in all competitions. However, in that period, they played against Barcelona twice, against Manchester City and Manchester United, so we can't say they are in a terrible form.


In their previous ten meetings, Chelsea recorded six victories, Leicester had only one win, while three matches ended in a draw. In seven out of those ten games we saw over 2.5 goals.


Leicester is in an excellent form at the moment. Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, the dynamic duo which was on fire two years ago when Leicester shocked the world by winning Premier League title are playing great at the moment. They are currently sitting at 8th place in the league, they avoided the relegation struggle, but they are too far away from Arsenal, which currently holds the place that leads to Europa League at the end of the season. Leicester can focus on FA Cup and try to win a trophy until the end of the season.

After they got eliminated from Champions League, the primary goal for Chelsea is to finish in the top four. Currently, they are five points behind Tottenham, and they will play a derby match against them on April 1. Antonio Conte probably thinks about that match already, so he might send a combined team on the pitch against Leicester.

Chelsea is the favorite to win the game, but Leicester shouldn't be taken lightly. If the match ends as a draw, penalty shootout will decide the winner.
