LEI vs CHE Dream Prediction: Third and fourth usher is a new game week in the league in a humdinger of a contest.
As the clamour for the top 4 grows in the Premier League, today clash could end up defining how the third and fourth place shape up at the end of the campaign. For both Leicester City and Chelsea, this encounter is a colossal fixture, one where either side will know a win would massively propel their season.
With both the sides tottering at the moment, wading into an abysmal spree of results, a defeat could prove to be calamitous to either side’s aspirations of nailing down a spot in the top 4. For Chelsea in particular, a win takes paramount importance with the club having clearly lost its way at the moment.
They squandered a sublime chance to register a win over 10 man Arsenal the last time around with the club failing to capitalise on their ample chances to be halted to a 2-2 draw. And while they didn’t manage to follow it up with a 2-1 win over Hull City in the FA Cup, it was far from a convincing result with the side’s perils in defense clearly apparent.
Elsewhere, Leicester City were sent packing out of the Carabao Cup after being put down in the semi-final. It was a result which left them stunned, one which epitomized their wavering form at the moment which has seen them lose three out of their last four ties.
Mendy and Amartey will both be sitting this one out for Leicester City given their injury issues. Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are both still going to be out of action for Chelsea with the players struggling with injuries.

LEI vs CHE Dream Prediction
LEI vs CHE Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga is going to be our shot stopper for the contest. He’s enduring a harrowing season at the moment, one which has seen him emerge with the least save rate out of all the goal-keepers in the league.
However, his skill set can’t be questioned with the player more than capable of redeeming himself to see us stick with him for the affair.
LEI vs CHE Dream11 Defenders
We’ll be moving in with Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta as the first defender for this encounter. In a tie where a cleansheet looks extremely unlikely for either side, Emerson made for an ideal pick given his affinity to keep galloping his way down the park and involving himself in the side’s attacking sorties.
At a mere 8 credits and someone more than well-versed with ingraining in place a slew of tackles and blocks, Antonio Rudiger joins him up while from Leicester City we’ll be limiting ourselves to the pick of Ben Chilwell.
LEI vs CHE Dream11 Mid-fielders
In their encounters against sides from the top 6, Leicester City have shown that they are more than vulnerable at falling apart infront of vicious attacks. Their fullbacks have come under particular attention with the pair collapsing under the brunt of attacks, a narrative which sees us move in with Chelsea’s Willian for the tie.
He’s paired up with four goals and two assists man Jorginho, someone who has dictated proceedings in Chelsea’s midfield with his meticulous passing and ball play. Matteo Kovacic wraps up the trio of picks from Chelsea while from Leicester City we are beginning with Harvey Barns who scored for the side against West Ham.
Although 6 goal man James Maddison was a consideration, he was too expensive for us for the tie to see us compensate for him with Youri Tielemans instead.
LEI vs CHE Dream11 Strikers
Although Tammy Abraham is still yet to fully recover from an ankle injury, we envision Lampard sticking him up the park for his side. Chelsea have failed to buy a player this transfer window and with the club clearly bereft of attacking players with Pulisic out at the moment as well, 13 goal man Abraham is bound to play.
Elsewhere, with the 17 goals, Jamie Vardy is Leicester City’s leading scorer to see him complete our Dream 11 side for the contest.
