What a week it has been for Leicester City.
The Foxes all but confirmed their place in next season’s Champions League with a win over Man Utd on Tuesday night before beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday afternoon.
As fate would have it, it’s Chelsea up next again for Leicester, but we expect Thomas Tuchel’s men to bounce back with a win to cheer the returning fans at Stamford Bridge and like the look of a bet on Chelsea to win to nil at 7/4 with bet365*.

Chelsea vs Leicester Betting Odds:
In stark contrast to their opponents, it has been a chastening week for Chelsea.
The Blues FA Cup final defeat was preceded by a home defeat to Arsenal while the women’s team were thrashed 4-0 in the Champions League final.
Even worse was Liverpool’s last minute winner against West Brom which leaves Chelsea with much work to do to ensure a place in the top four.
Of course, Chelsea still have another Champions League final to look forward to and, much sooner, the return of fans to Stamford Bridge.
We think the Blues can brighten the mood among their fans with an important win on home turf and, after Tuchel claimed they were unlucky at Wembley, that they will make sure of the three points with a controlled win so back Chelsea to win 2-0 at 13/2 with 888sport.

Some of the Chelsea fans who were lucky enough to be at Wembley on Saturday were a little bit puzzled by Tuchel’s team selection.
While the movement of Reece James to right centre-back made sense to counter the pace of Jamie Vardy, the selection of Hakim Ziyech ahead of Christian Pulisic and belated introduction of Kai Havertz were less easy to understand.
The big German forward has started to flourish lately and can come up with the goods on Tuesday so Havertz is a good bet to score first at 11/2 with Unibet.
