Leicester City vs Chelsea Match Preview
Maurizio Sarri’s future at Chelsea is still in the balance – but securing third position in the Premier League table with a victory at Leicester may just help to save him from the sack.
The Italian has spent much of 2019 having to fend off speculation that his Stamford Bridge reign will last a maximum of one season, yet there is still a chance that he can win over the club’s hirers and firers.
At the time of writing, we did not know whether the Blues would get past Eintracht Frankfurt to reach the Europa League Final after drawing the away leg 1-1. However, lifting that trophy, and finishing third in the league, would surely help Sarri’s job prospects considerably.
Chelsea have staggered past Tottenham and Arsenal into the top three thanks to a huge helping hand from both of their London rivals, and they will definitely collect the ‘bronze medal’ if they triumph at the King Power Stadium to round off their domestic campaign.
Leicester have improved significantly since Brendan Rodgers’ arrival as manager and in their latest home match, they put three goals without reply past Arsenal.
