After yet another international break real football is back and thank goodness for that. I don’t know about you, but there’s only so many goals I can watch Harry Kane put past nations with populations smaller than most English villages.

But that doesn’t matter anymore, England are heading to the World Cup, the Irish are headed to the pub and we’re headed for another Saturday Bet Builder! It’s Leicester v Chelsea at the King Power Stadium as the league leaders look to extend their three-point advantage over Manchester City in the early kick-off.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

With Romelu Lukaku’s fitness touch-and-go, Mateo Kovacic and Timo Werner out injured, all eyes will be on Mason Mount to carry on his electrifying form. It looks like Youri Tielemans may be unavailable for selection for the Foxes this weekend as he struggles with a calf injury.

Also, the situation surrounding Marc Albrighton is still unclear following that knock in Moscow. With all of that in mind, let’s get to looking at what we can put in this weekend’s Bet Builder.

Chelsea to Win

Chelsea have been in fantastic form so far this season and are currently undefeated in their last five games. Expect to see them bounce back after the 1-1 draw with Burnley against a Leicester City side who have conceded 18 goals in 11 games with a Chelsea Win.

Over 2.5 Goals

Leicester have not been great at the back this season, and haven’t kept a clean sheet since the opening game. There have been three or more goals in nine of the Foxes’ games this campaign.

Hopefully high-flying Chelsea can push that to 10 with their firepower up front. Kasper Schmeichel has struggled to keep the ball out of his net and you can expect the poor bugger to have to reach into his net on more than one occasion in this one. Expect Over 2.5 Goals and plenty of action.

Mason Mount to have 2 or more shots on target

Mason Mount has played like a man possessed this season with nine shots on target and three goals so far. Now without wisdom teeth to hold him back, we look forward to seeing him cause absolute bedlam against the Leicester defence and for Mason Mount to have 2 or more shots on target.

Reece James to have an Assist

I’m backing Reece James to bag himself an assist this weekend. The young right back has three through 11 games so far this season. With a plethora of options up front to play it onto, expect to see the Foxes travelling home with their tails between their legs.
