The Foxes have scored at least two goals in four of their last five at home as well. Overall this season Leicester have taken a W8 D2 L8 record on home soil, scoring an average of 1.3 goals per game during that sequence. They have conceded at 1.1 goal per game on average.

Leicester have taken a clean sheet in 28% of home games and of their eight home victories, six of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. Leicester haven’t been involved in a home draw in twelve successive games now. The Foxes have conceded 60% of their home goals in the first half of games this season and just six-times have they actually opened the scoring in a fixture. Their form over the last eight rounds of matches has only been better by two teams, Liverpool and Manchester City. So that shows how well they have been going with their form. Leicester are W2 L3 at home against the other big six teams this season.

Who will win – Leicester v Chelsea Predictions

There is not too hard to imagine this game petering out to nothing in the second half. Chelsea are a team who only look as if they can play one good half of game per match. Leicester are busy enough and composed and organised enough to claim a point in their final home game of the season. Draw
