Premier League champions Leicester host league leaders Chelsea this evening (5.30pm kick-off) looking to stretch their unbeaten run to four matches.
Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes have struggled in defence of the title they won so incredibly last season, but recent results and performances suggest that a better second half of the season is to come for the champions.
They beat West Ham 1-0 on New Year’s Eve before drawing 0-0 at Middlesbrough on January 2, and then produced an excellent second half effort to come from behind to beat Everton 2-1 in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend.
Leicester have a fourth round clash with Midlands rivals Derby County to look forward to in a few weeks’ time, but before that they have important league games against Chelsea and Southampton to contend with.
The first of which is today as Antonio Conte’s Blues visit the King Power Stadium looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.
Conte’s men lost 2-0 at Tottenham in their last league outing, but did beat Peterborough 4-1 last weekend to reach round four of the FA Cup.
Nonetheless, they’ll find it tough away at Leicester this evening, who have lost just twice at home this season, and here are THREE reasons why the Foxes will get all three points tonight…
