William Hill's Leicester preview

It’s always a disappointment when we don’t get our Premier League fix during International week, thankfully it is time to rejoice again as the current and former winners of the Premier League go head to head at the King Power this weekend.

Chelsea have history on their side heading into this game, having beaten Leicester 13 times in the previous 15 fixtures (all competitions) with the Foxes’ only two non-defeats coming in their title-winning season of 2015/16. No surprise then to see William Hill placing Chelsea as clear favourites at 4/5, with a Leicester win at 10/3 and the draw 13/5.

Given the form the Blues hit before the international break, they will be chomping at the bit to get back across the white line with a couple of new additions. Danny Drinkwater arrived at the Bridge at the end of the transfer window and he could well be thrown straight into the mix against his former club this weekend. Not one renowned for scoring during his time with the Foxes, he can nevertheless be backed at 14/1 to open the scoring this weekend.

Alvaro Morata has scored two and assisted two in the league so far since his arrival from Spain in the summer and is the 10/3 favourite to open the scoring. Or how about this, William Hill have enhanced him to score in a Chelsea win to 2/1 from 13/8.

Marcos Alonso scored twice in this fixture last season and has already bagged a couple of goals for the Blues this time around. If you fancy more of the same he’s 17/5 to score anytime.

Jamie Vardy continues to carry the attacking threat for Leicester and William Hill have also enhanced the price on him to score in a Leicester win to 7/1, was 5/1.
