Leicester City vs. Chelsea Preview- prediction, team news, lineups

Leicester were held back by the Saints at St Mary’s, where they famously put nine past Southampton only three and a half years ago, failing to convert 65% possession into anything meaningful as they slumped to another painful defeat.Information Guide Nigeria

A single Carlos Alcaraz goal in the 35th minute was enough to separate the two sides on the night, condemning the Foxes to a fourth straight defeat – including three Premier League defeats in a row – during their latest dismal run of form.

In addition to his team failing to find the back of the net or even the target, Rodgers was subjected to chants from the fans calling for his dismissal, as Leicester sit in 15th place in the Premier League table, just two points clear of the drop zone and a further ten points off a top-half spot.

Few would fault Leicester for losing to Arsenal and Manchester United, but losing in the FA Cup to Blackburn Rovers before squandering chance after chance against Southampton is concerning, and the Foxes could now become the first Premier League team in history to have no shots on target in three consecutive games.

Rodgers is also in danger of making unwelcome personal history, as the 50-year-old has lost a joint-high 15 league games this season and could lose 16 this weekend, and Leicester come into Saturday’s game having failed to score in four of their last six Premier League home games.NYSC Portal

Graham Potter’s job security has also been a hot topic in the Premier League managerial landscape, but the Englishman has certainly won over some of the Blues’ disgruntled fans by masterminding a well-deserved Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund.

The ball appeared destined not to cross the line at Stamford Bridge, but Raheem Sterling’s strike and a retaken Kai Havertz penalty helped Chelsea overcome a 1-0 deficit from the first leg and advance to the quarter-finals.

Potter may be beginning to justify the board’s decision to keep him, but Wesley Fofana’s game-winning header against the Whites did little to improve Chelsea’s 10th-placed standing in the Premier League table.

With an 11-point deficit to fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur – who have played one more game – going for glory in the Champions League is arguably the Blues’ best route back into continental competition next year, and their away fortunes continue to be wholly unpleasant reading.

Indeed, Chelsea are winless in their last ten road games in all competitions, losing seven of them and scoring just four goals in the process, but the Blues defeated the Foxes 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in August and could record their first league double over the hosts since taking the Premier League title away from Leicester in 2016-17.

Leicester’s woes at Southampton were exacerbated by an injury to Harvey Barnes, who was forced to leave the game at halftime due to a twisted ankle, though he is not believed to have suffered any serious damage and may return before the international break.

However, Barnes is expected to be too tired for Saturday’s game, as are James Justin, Youri Tielemans, and Victor Kristiansen, while Ryan Bertrand and Jonny Evans remain doubts as they work to improve their fitness levels.

Kelechi Iheanacho was guilty of wasting several chances against Southampton, but Rodgers has defended the Nigerian and should continue to believe in him from the start here.

Similarly, Chelsea will be without Thiago Silva, Armando Broja, and Edouard Mendy, while N’Golo Kante may not be considered for selection against his former club because Potter is concerned about his fitness.

Mason Mount was suspended for the win over Dortmund, but he will be assessed after missing last weekend’s match against Leeds due to an abdominal issue, and Cesar Azpilicueta may be given more time to recover from the sickening head injury he sustained against Southampton.

Potter’s decision to bring Marc Cucurella back in from the cold was justified in midweek, but Benoit Badiashile, who was ineligible for that match alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, will be expected to be recalled to the backline right away.JAMB Result
