Despite our poor league form, despite going into the game as underdogs, I firmly believe that Chelsea will attack Leicester in their own back yard and take all three points!
Why am I so confident I hear you ask? It's because I saw a different performance from Chelsea against Porto the other night. A performance given by the players as a collective that showed me that they are back to where they needed to be and it's an ominous sign for our hosts and Claudio Ranieri this evening.
I personally would start the game with an unchanged side to that of Porto meaning that Cesc Fabregas has to settle for a place on the bench again. Ramires and Matic are both required in the holding midfield position to cope with their pace on the counter.
In my opinion, it's not about how well we deal with Leicester this evening, it's about how well they ae able to cope with our attacking four players. Eden Hazard is now back on form and playing with confidence, Oscar provides us with plenty in the number ten role whether he plays as a link man, a creator or simply a grafter who works hard and finally, Willian gives us goals coupled with his ability to pick a pass.
All of them supporting Diego Costa who finally showed in that first half against Porto that his movement is looking sharper and he is hungry for goals once again. The movement has been a real problem but it was so much better. If he can kick on now and carry that movement throughout ninety minutes when the chances are there to get on the end of the things, It can only be a major positive for us all.
I really, honestly and truly believe that Chelsea will win this tonight. We have the quality, we have the ability, we have world class players and now with the rest of country watching after last weeks debacle against Bournemouth, we have a chance to make a real statement of intent from now until the end of the season!
Come on Chelsea, deliver a great performance and three points!!
