Leicester City face a huge task on Saturday as the strugglers host Chelsea in a game that could have monumental consequences for the rest of the season. Leicester, currently only two points from safety in 15th, are winless in their last four games, only scoring once in that run.
Chelsea, on the other hand, have enjoyed a successful week but there is still a significant amount of pressure on coach Graham Potter. Their 1-0 over Leeds last weekend was their first win since the 15th of January, though they have followed that result up with a 2-0 win over German high-fliers Borussia Dortmund, a score that sees them progress into the Champions League quarter finals.
Whilst Chelsea have picked up those two wins, they won’t want anything to disrupt their positive momentum, especially as they could slip down to 11th if they don’t come out of Leicester with three points. The Foxes, meanwhile, are desperate for anything or else they’ll be sucked into the relegation scrap below them.
The King Power will be in a cautious mood, perhaps even disgruntled, come kick-off; the Leicester faithful need something to cheer about considering the Premier League is the only thing they have left. In what promises to be a tough and tetchy affair, here are the three things Foxes of Leicester think you should look out for.
