Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to win against Leicester
Odds: 5/4 @ Betfair
Former Premier League champions Chelsea see out the season with the new champions Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon. The Londoners are favourites to take advantage of the party atmosphere in the City camp which could well see a weakened starting eleven from the visitors.
Chelsea have nothing other than pride to play for, currently sitting ninth in the Premier League with 49 points from 37 games, but they would like to end a poor season on a positive in front of their own supporters. The Blues have recently picked up draws to Tottenham and Liverpool so they’re not in awful shape ahead of their City clash.
As for the visitors, Leicester are top of the table with 80 points to their name. They sealed the Premier League title with games to spare, and could finish the season 13 points clear of the runners-up if results go their way. The Foxes are coming off the back of four wins and two draws from their last six league games, but they might struggle this afternoon.
Leicester will still be celebrating their title triumph and may well have a changed starting eleven to allow fringe stars to get game time. The result is largely irrelevant too, even if it’s manager Claudio Ranieri returning to a former stomping ground. Chelsea could well deliver to spoil the party mood, and Betfair are giving odds of 5/4 for Chelsea to win against Leicester as a result.
