Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash between Leicester City and Chelsea, Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has given his prediction for the game.

Nicholas told Sky Sports: “Chelsea are up and down. Is Michy Batshuayi a replacement for Tammy Abraham? No. Could he do a short-term job? Possibly.

“He is not a link-up player, but more of a penalty-box player and Abraham has more than that. But they have limited options ahead of Deadline Day. Some of the young players have gone slightly off the boil.

“Leicester will have had a lot taken out of them over the festive period. They were strong favourites against Aston Villa and failed to make the final. Brendan Rodgers will not like losing cup ties, as he had none of that with Celtic.

“Jamie Vardy came on and James Maddison played well, but they do not have balance right. There is a vulnerability at the back for Leicester and they will be questioning themselves.

“They have more than enough for the top four but both will be more than happy with a point from this one.”
