Sunday brings us the tie of the FA Cup quarter-finals in Leicester v Chelsea at 4pm.
Both teams are in a tough battle in the Premier League to earn that top four finish with Leicester currently in third, one point ahead of their opposition on Sunday. With this in mind, team news is going to play a massive role in this one-legged affair, as I’m sure both teams have that top four battle number one on their priority list.
Since the break, Leicester have yet to get back into the dominant form that they showed earlier in season, while Chelsea are two-from-two, the latest being a solid 2-1 win against a very good Man City squad.
On Sunday, I don’t see much of this current form changing for either team and with Chelsea having much more depth in their squad, I find it hard to see past a Chelsea win here.
Their confidence is surely as high as it could possibly be, and with the choice of at least seven players to fill up those attacking positions, I can see Leicester finding it difficult to contain Chelsea.
Christian Pulisic is showing everyone now why he’s worth the £60m Chelsea paid for him. For the whole season he has never been granted an easy starting position, but anytime he gets on the pitch he causes a serious threat to the opposition.
I really hope he gets another start this weekend after showing his quality with his goal against Man City on Thursday. I’ll be waiting until team news is confirmed, but the bets of him to score first or anytime at both look very attractive if he does start on the pitch.
We also have a Power Price up of Christian Pulisic to have 2 or more shots on target which was 5/2, but is now 10/3. Which if he starts, is a great bet to be on considering he had 3 shots on target against Man City.
As I’ve said, Chelsea are the team in form, have more squad depth and are the just the better team on paper.
That makes my final bet for this match the #WhatOddsPaddy punt of Chelsea scores 2+ goals & 6+ Chelsea corners.
I can’t really see Frank Lampard’s men holding back here with the firepower they have up front so I would imagine we’ll see a lot of Chelsea attacks in the 90 minutes of normal time. With that said, attacks bring goals and corners so at that price, the above WOP is definitely a good interest bet for those Chelsea lovers out there.
