Leicester City’s Cinderella story looks to be over, as the Foxes are 10 points behind Man City. Chelsea is not that much better, as they’ve only racked up 13 in the first seven games of the season. They’re five points behind the leader. After a going winless in three of their last four games, they need to snap out of it if they want to fight for the title.
The Blues have some momentum. Before the international break, they beat Hull City, 2-0, with Diego Costa helping Willian, 27, score the first goal before Diego netted a point of his own, according to Yibada. Meanwhile, Leicester fought to a 0-0 draw with Southampton before the break.
It was the second straight winless match and it shows – the Foxes are sandwiched between Watford and Bournemouth in the table. If they are expecting to go back-to-back, they better use this match as a way to spark a winning streak.
Sadly, Wilian won’t be around to pull off a repeat performance for Chelsea. The Brazilian star returned home for his mother’s funeral following her heartbreaking loss to cancer. “All of us at Chelsea Football Club are sending our love and deepest condolences to Willian and his family after the passing of his mother,” the club said in a statement, per ESPN. “We are thinking of you, Willian.”
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Chelsea will start a new winning streak or will Leicester City conquer their foes?
