After a good win against Hull City, Chelsea go up against Leicester. An important match for Chelsea, as a loss puts us in danger with United and Tottenham straight after the winter break. Leicester, on the other hand, are looking to extend the point gap between us by 11 points.

The Foxes are looking a bit shaky in recent times, losing 3 out of their last 5 games in all competitions. The 3rd vs 4th place game will be very interesting to see who comes out on top. The Leicester team do have some threatening guys to be worried about, including the likes of Vardy, Perez, Maddison and Ricardo Pereira.

The League's top scorer could "potentially" play as described by former Chelsea coach, Brendan Rodgers. The 33-year-old has been very good in front of goal this season, scoring 17 goals as well as racking up 4 assists.

The player with the second-most goals and tied second-most assists is the Spanish Forward, Ayoze Pérez. The Spanish player who can play multiple different positions has scored 7 goals and has 4 assists.

I'm predicting a lot of goals throughout the match from both sides. Leicester will take the lead, but by half time Chelsea will be 2-1 up. Around the 60th minute, Chelsea would get their 3rd goal. Leicester will  start to apply a lot of pressure and score on the 85th minute trying to aspire a come-back. This will not happen.

Team News:
Abraham will be assessed before the game as reported by Frank. No questions were asked about all the other injuries in the press conference so at this point it is unknown.

Predicted line-up: (4-3-3)
Kepa, James, Tomori, Zouma, Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Hudson-Odoi, Willian (Pulisic), Giroud (Tammy)
*Pulisic and Tammy if their fit*

Score Prediction:
Chelsea 3 - 2 Leicester City
