Sky Sports betting expert Jones Knows is predicting a victory for Leicester City against Chelsea at the King Power Stadium tonight.

Jones believes that the Foxes will take advantage of Chelsea’s possession game and hit Frank Lampard’s side on the break.

He predicted a 2-0 win for the home side.

He said in his analysis for Sky Sports: “Never have the chances of a team winning a football match hinged so much on the availability of one player. Many punters will have been waiting with bated breath, like me, for Brendan Rodgers’ press conference regarding the fitness of Jamie Vardy. The line that the striker is fit to play was music to my ears as Leicester at 2/1 are a fantastic betting opportunity with Vardy fit.

“Leicester are perfectly drilled to beat a ponderous possession-focused team like Chelsea. Under Rodgers, we have seen time and time again that the Foxes are far more effective in games when they aren’t required to make the running.

“Without possession, they are a dangerous beast on the counter as shown by winning six of their seven matches this season when having less than 50 per cent of the ball. Chelsea will fall into that trap here.

“Chelsea quite simply can’t be relied on away from home. They made such heavy weather in finishing off 10-man Fulham at the weekend with their creative players all looking devoid of confidence. The Blues have lost 10 of their 28 Premier League away games under Frank Lampard – a record that might just get worse come Tuesday evening.”
