Chelsea have drawn their last three games in all competitions, but they would be favourites to claim a win when they host Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
In the league, the Blues are still in a superb streak of form and have dropped only four points in their last six games. However, in their last league fixture, they could only draw 2-2 at Arsenal. And following that, they have drawn against Norwich City and Arsenal in FA Cup and League Cup respectively. Alvaro Morata, in particular, has looked out of form and has been guilty of squandering opportunities in the recent games.
After dropping two points at Emirates Stadium, the Blues have dropped back to the third spot behind Manchester United. However, only one point can separate the two sides, and Antonio Conte would want his side to reclaim that spot this weekend.
The Foxes claimed a 3-0 home win over Huddersfield Town in their last game, but prior to that, they had two consecutive games on the road.
Irrespective of their recent away form, the Foxes once again look like a dangerous side under Claude Puel, and currently sit in the eighth spot with 30 points.
Earlier this season, Chelsea claimed a 2-1 win at King Power Stadium thanks to goals from Alvaro Morata and N’golo Kante.
