Leicester City host Chelsea in the English Premier League this lunchtime in a fixture which has been notoriously tight in recent seasons.
The Foxes had lost 13 of 16 matches against The Blues up until the spring of 2018 before something of a switch in form.
Ahead of the two sides’ latest meeting, we look back at the last three fixtures between these two clubs.
22 December 2018 – Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1 (English Premier League)
Chelsea went into the Christmas period on a frustrating note with a 1-0 defeat to Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues struggled to find the back of the net despite being dominant throughout. They were undone by Jamie Vardy’s clinical second half strike as Leicester City secured a smash-and-grab victory.
Eden Hazard went closest for the home side but he saw an effort come back off the bar on a frustrating afternoon for The Blues.
12 May 2019 – Leicester City 0 Chelsea 0 (English Premier League)
Leicester City and Chelsea played out a drab goalless draw in the two club’s final fixture of the 2018/2019 campaign.
Blues boss Maurizio Sarri opted to rest Kepa Arrizabalaga and Eden Hazard for the match with the club’s UEFA Europa League final with Arsenal on the horizon and it led to The Blues playing their part in a truly forgettable game.
Gonzalo Higuain went closest for Sarri’s side firing just wide while most of Chelsea’s other chances were from distance. The result had no impact on The Blues’ season though with the club already having qualified for the UEFA Champions League.
18 August 2019 – Chelsea 1 Leicester City 1 (English Premier League)
Frank Lampard’s young Chelsea side ran out of steam as they could only record a 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.
Everything was going to plan for the South West Londoners when Mason Mount gave them a seventh-minute lead while only the last-ditch challenge of Christian Fuchs denied N’Golo Kante from making it 2-0 against his former club.
Chelsea stuttered in the second half and Wilfred Ndidi netted from a corner kick to rescue a deserved point for the visitors.
This afternoon’s meeting kicks-off at 12.30pm and will be screened live on BT Sport 1.
