Leicester are currently 12th in Premier League, Chelsea on top of the pops. Leicester need a win to get into that vital chase for European football, Chelsea will hopefully go for all three and expose themselves a bit so that Jamie Vardy or any other player up front will get their chance.
Date: 20.11.21, Venue: King Power Stadium, Match: Premier League
Chelsea are on a great run at the moment and Brendan Rodgers do have a battle on his hands that could be difficult to cope with, and we all know he loves to change tactics and players and thats something TCF hate, but as long as he get points in the bag, no one cares what he does.
Recent speculations about his departure to Man Utd is as he said himself, premature and a non-going project as long as a manager is in charge at Old Trafford, but the speculations linking him with Man Utd must come from somewhere. It is destroying, disturbing and toxic for the Leicester City project and you could wonder why Graham Potter or David Moyes are not listed as candidates for the job at Old Trafford and that should be a question to ask as they are doing better at the moment than Brendan Rodgers.

TCF – Favorite Preview:
Looking at previous meetings there are a number of great games v. Chelsea and we can just roll back to last season when Leicester did defeat Chelsea at home, 2-0. Goals from Ndidi and Maddison helped Leicester reach the top of the Premier League table. It was also the first time Brendan Rodgers did see a win in his career against Chelsea.Embed from Getty Images
Going back in time you will find that fantastic win at Stamford Bridge also a 2-0 victory, goals from Muzzy Izzet and Stan Collymore. A great and fantastic start to the season for Peter Taylor who also did take Leicester to the top of the Premier League later in that 2000/2001 campaign.
Chelsea fans might be much happier with the outfall of the 1964/65 EFL Cup as they in a two game final did see victory. Goals from Tambling, Venables and McCreadie secured a 3-2 win in the second game, the first ending 0-0. Jimmy Goodfellow and Colin Appleton scored for Leicester.
We should for the fun of it also mention last years FA Cup final which was a fantastic and enjoyable afternoon for Leicester fans as they did see that shot from Youri Tielemans going in and securing a great 1-0 win and the first ever FA Cup trophy to find it’s way to Leicester.
A great number of players have been in both camps with N’Gole Kante and Ben Chilwell standing out as great heroes with Chelsea and Leicester. Danny Drinkwater had a grand time at Leicester but has struggled heavily at Stamford Bridge. We do have other players such as Muzzy Izzet who never played in the Chelsea first team but surely put his mark on everything at Leicester becoming one of the best players at the club in all history winning a bronze World Cup medal while with the club.Embed from Getty Images
