Leicester City vs Chelsea Kick Off Time
NAME: Leicester City – Chelsea
DATE: 11 Mar 2023
TIME: 15:00 UTC
VENUE: King Power Stadium, Leicester, England
Fresh from claiming the biggest win of his Chelsea career so far, Graham Potter takes his Blues side to the King Power Stadium for Saturday’s clash with a confidence-sapped Leicester City.
The visitors saw off Borussia Dortmund 2-1 on aggregate in the Champions League last 16 in midweek, while Brendan Rodgers’s men went down 1-0 to Southampton last time out.
A solitary Carlos Alcaraz strike in the 35th minute was all that was needed to separate the two sides on the night, condemning the Foxes to a fourth straight defeat – including three Premier League defeats in a row – during their latest discouraging spell of form.
As well as witnessing his side fail to find the back of the net or even the target, Rodgers was subjected to chants from the fans calling for his departure, as Leicester languish in 15th in the Premier League table – just two points clear of the drop zone and a further 10 adrift of a top-half spot.
Few would knock Leicester for losing to Arsenal and Manchester United, but going out of the FA Cup at the hands of Blackburn Rovers before wasting chance after chance against Southampton is alarming, and the Foxes could now become the first Premier League team on record to have no shots on target three games in a row.
Rodgers is also at risk of making unwanted personal history – the 50-year-old has lost a joint-high 15 league games this season and could make that 16 this weekend – and Leicester enter Saturday’s contest having failed to score in four of their last six Premier League home battles.
The security of Graham Potter’s job has also been a hot topic in the Premier League managerial landscape, but the Englishman has surely got some of the Blues’ disgruntled fans back on his side by masterminding a thoroughly-deserved success over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
In an all-too familiar sight for Blues supporters, the ball seem destined to not cross the line at Stamford Bridge, but Raheem Sterling’s strike and a retaken Kai Havertz penalty saw Chelsea erase a 1-0 deficit from the first leg and book their spot in the quarter-finals.
Now basking in the success of back-to-back wins following last week’s top-flight triumph over Leeds United, Potter may be starting to vindicate the board’s decision to keep him on, but Wesley Fofana’s game-winning header against the Whites did little to improve Chelsea’s 10th-placed standing in the Premier League table.
With an 11-point gap to make up to fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur – who have played a game more – going for glory in the Champions League is arguably the Blues’ best route back into continental competition next year, and their away fortunes still make for wholly unpleasant reading.
