Our Tipster’s Angle

With the much-celebrated FA Cup on the line, both the teams are expected to be under some pressure. Three out of the last five matches played between these two sides have ended in a draw. But the firepower and depth in the Chelsea squad can prove to be the difference between the two sides. With a tight schedule and potential European qualification on the line, Leicester is under the pump to field its best team on all match days. Considering the recent results and exceptional depth in the squad, Chelsea is the favorite to win this match. 

Tip 1: Total Goals – Under 2.5

Both the teams are having great players in their defense. In the last five matches played between these two sides, a total of nine goals have been scored at an average of 1.8 goals per match. Chelsea has defended well this season and has conceded only 33 goals in 36 premier league matches, averaging only 0.9 goals per match. They have kept 18 clean sheets in the process.

Chelsea has managed to reach the FA Cup final in four of the last five seasons. They finished runner-up in the last edition of this competition.
