Leicester City

Starting off the season as the second-hottest team in the league, Leicester City finally cooled off, but they are still one of the best teams. The Foxes are coming off a 4-1 victory against West Ham United last week. The win snapped their two-game losing streak in the league. Harvey Barnes opened the scoring in the 24th minute before Ricardo Perreira doubled their lead before the first-half whistle. After conceding a penalty in the 50th minute, Leicester City put the game away courtesy of two goals from Ayoze Perez. The win gave the Foxes 48 points total this season and third place in the league table.

Players to Watch: Jamie Vardy (17 goals, 4 assists), Ayoze Perez (7 G, 4 A), James Maddison (6 G, 3 A), Harvey Barnes (3 G, 6 A), Youri Tielemans (3 G, 3 A), Kelechi Iheanacho (3 G, 3 A).

Chelsea

Frank Lampard’s tenure as Chelsea boss has started well for a rookie manager in the Premier League. The Blues play like a top club sometimes but there were tough stretches as they continue playing youngsters. Chelsea has only one win in their last four games, drawing their latest game to Arsenal, 2-2. With Arsenal down to 10 men after 26 minutes, Jorginho gave Chelsea the lead by scoring from the spot before their opponents fought back in the 63rd minute with an equalizer. Cesar Azpilicueta scored in the 84th minute in what was thought as the game-winner but Hector Bellerin equalized three minutes later. It was just Chelsea’s fourth draw of the season but they also have eight defeats. 

Players to Watch: Tammy Abraham (13 G, 3 A), Mason Mount (5 G, 2 A), Willian (4 G, 4 A), Christian Pulisic (5 G, 2 A), Callum Hudson-Odoi (1 G, 4 A), Jorginho (4 G, 2 A).
