Leicester City vs Chelsea: Recommended bets

James Maddison to score first. Following an impressive debut season with the Foxes, the midfielder has managed to step up to an even higher gear this term.

Maddison has netted five goals and provided two assists in the league and is quickly becoming the main creative spark on Brendan Rodgers’ side.

The 24-year-old has netted in his last two appearances and will be confident of doing so again on Tuesday.

Chelsea end winless run

Chelsea ended a run of three games without a win against a 10-man Fulham side on Saturday.

Mason Mount’s late strike secured the three points as they took advantage of the Cottagers being a man short.

The Blues’ run has seen them fall into seventh and are now four points off the Champions League spots.

Timo Werner’s poor form in front of goal has been a big concern for Chelsea with the German failing to find the back of the net in his last 10 matches.
