Leicester upset the odds winning the FA Cup final against Chelsea on Saturday and they meet yet again in a crucial league clash on Tuesday evening. Leicester know they’ll be assured of Champions League qualification should they win, but Chelsea will be looking over their shoulder after Liverpool’s dramatic late winner at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

4th place is still in Chelsea’s hands, they just have to match or better Liverpool’s results but they do have this game then a tricky trip to Villa Park on final day. With plenty at stake yet again we could see another low scoring encounter and under 2.5 goals actually looks quite a generous price at 4/5.

With goals at a premium for Chelsea at the moment they’ll have to have a prime focus on keeping them out at the other end, Leicester will no doubt be the more confident side after the weekend.

Unders has copped in 22/26 Chelsea games under Tuchel in all competitions and they’ve kept clean sheets in 17 of those. It was a wonderful strike from Youri Tielemans from range in the final but otherwise the Blues were seldom troubled.

Mike Dean is the man in the middle for this one and it’s a card happy appointment for a game with plenty riding on it. One player who just looks too big for a caution is Mason Mount for the hosts. Only Cesar Azpilicueta averages more fouls per game for Chelsea than Mount and that’s seen him collect 6 cards this season. Odds of 7/1 on the all action midfielder to go into the book looks worthy of some interest.

I was first interested in the betting industry by doing the odd coupon at 18 - when I’d see a team at odds I didn’t expect it sparked my curiosity as to why that was. I’d go and research everything around that club: form, team news, manager quotes, and try give my own price in an aim to out-do the bookies. I personally enjoy punting on the Football League and European competitions. I like to diversify what markets I bet on so sometimes it’s outrights, goals, player cards etc. The Football League angle comes from being an avid Bradford City fan which has its ups (reaching a League Cup final and beating Chelsea in the FA Cup) and its downs (The entirety of 2018). Hobbies of mine include playing football, cross country running, travelling and playing Football Manager.
