Chelsea have a big game this weekend, as the Blues will be away to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Chelsea have a three points lead at the top of the table, but it could easily have been a five point gap if not for a painful 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Chelsea’s away clash to Leicester City will be followed by a home Champions League clash against Juventus before a home game against Manchester United.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has admitted it will be a tough game and also a tough week for Chelsea, but he’s backing the Blues to get a 2-1 victory away at the King Power Stadium.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “This should be a fantastic game and a brilliant one to kick-start the return of the Premier League.

“Leicester have been too inconsistent this season, but I think they’ll return from the break energised. They are still a very good side when they play at their best, as shown when they beat Man United 4-2 here.

“Thomas Tuchel was furious to drop points at home to Burnley last time out. The Blues were leading and cruising, but you are always vulnerable if you don’t get that crucial second goal.

“It’s a big week for the club with games at home to Juventus and Man United to follow, so I’m expecting a good performance here.

“There’s not much to separate these two but I think Chelsea will narrowly edge it. I’m going for 2-1 Chelsea.”
