Leicester City vs Chelsea: Prediction
Leicester City hardly looked convincing in any of their Premier League matches this season. They are further weakened by the departure of Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani and Daniel Amartey for the Africa Cup of Nations. Chelsea are in some excellent form and they have the luxury of a fully fit squad. They could ease to another win here.
