Chelsea: After the upset loss to Wolves on Dec. 5, the Blues bounced back by knocking off undefeated Manchester City and followed that up with a tough 2-1 win at Brighton to get into the top four. Now comes a really great chance to take a commanding lead ahead of fifth place. Chelsea will face Watford, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Newcastle after Wolves. Outside of Watford, the others are in the bottom third of the table.
Leicester City: The Foxes only have survival on their minds, and they’ll likely get there. To help their chances, they need to get something from games like this.. Following Chelsea, the team will face Manchester City, and they aren’t expected to get anything from either. Even a point from those two could be valuable come season’s end.
