Top predictions for Chelsea vs. Leicester City
Green is leaning under 2.5 goals in Tuesday's matchup between Chelsea and Leicester City. Much will be on the line with both teams having the opportunity for a top-four finish, which will earn them a spot in next season's Champions League. A loss or a tie would be devastating for Chelsea's chances as fifth-place Liverpool lurks close behind. A draw or win would boost Leicester City, but a loss could also be costly.
Leicester City has a pair of top goal-scorers in forwards Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho. Vardy leads the team with 13 goals and nine assists in EPL play. Iheanacho has 11 goals and two assists in league action. They'll have a tough time against Chelsea's stingy defense, which has recorded a shutout in three of its last five league fixtures.
