Saturday's Super 6 Picks: Chelsea To Beat Leicester At Stamford Bridge

Saturday's Super 6 Picks: Chelsea To Beat Leicester At Stamford Bridge

Antonio Conte had been wary of the Foxes and his concern proved well founded as the movement and energy of Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki troubled Chelsea.

The former Italy coach also spoke of how he expects a really tough game against Claude Puel's in form Leicester side.

The Blues are yet to record a win so far in 2018, drawing four straight matches.

"For the manager of this club, it is normal to have this pressure if you won the league last season and reach the FA Cup final", Conte, whose side can move to second in the league with a win today, added. My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup, and then these two games with nearly the same players.

"Chelsea have had a busier schedule and played the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Arsenal on Wednesday, but they have home advantage and I think they will make it count".

Earlier in the season, Frank de Boer's short tenure as Crystal Palace manager ended after defeat against Burnley, but that all seems long ago and the Eagles revival under Roy Hodgson continued with a 1-0 victory over the Clarets.

Chelsea skipper Gary Cahill was forced off in the first half of their Premier League fixture against Leicester City. The Red Devils have reportedly identified Vardy as one of the targets as a back-up for Romelu Lukaku, claims the Telegraph.

Amber Tamblyn quickly responded via Twitter , " Michelle Williams was paid 1% of what her male co-star made on her latest film". Williams and Wahlberg are both represented by William Morris/Endeavor.

Chelsea's defensive back line is now ostensibly "more" first-choice than before, so perhaps they'll get it together against an impressive Leicester side.

The draw means Chelsea could lose third spot in the Premier League depending on how Sunday's game between Liverpool and Manchester City pans out.

Equally important, winning in fine style would also help re-balance Conte's state of mind and perhaps help him realise that settling his feud with Mourinho can be done on the pitch by his team playing a better brand of football and winning more trophies.

What's your take? Let us know.

Since losing to Man City in September, Chelsea have won each of their last seven home Premier League games, shipping just three goals and keeping five clean sheets in that time.

Huddersfield v West Ham - This is a game that seems to guarantee goals as Huddersfield have only kept one clean sheet in their previous six and they can afford to have a real go at the John Smith's Stadium, where we are expecting an entertaining clash.
