Leicester vs Chelsea

, KO: 16:00 Jun 28, 2020, King Power Stadium

THE second offering of Sunday's triple-bill from the FA Cup comes from the King Power Stadium where Leicester entertain Chelsea.

Just one place separates the two sides in the Premier League table with both teams involved in an ever-growing and fiercely competitive race for a top-four finish.

Brendan Rodgers' men looked well on course to qualify for next season's Champions League, however, the Foxes have stuttered either side of the enforced break.

Back-to-back draws with Watford and Brighton has seen Leicester's buffer over the chasing pack cut to just five points but the Foxes will still fancy their chances of landing a place in the last-four of the FA Cup.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have restarted their season with a bang after the Blues followed up last Sunday's 2-1 victory at Villa Park by putting Man City to the sword on Thursday night.

Consequently, Frank Lampard's young side are now firmly in the driving seat to return to Europe's top-table next term and this weekend the capital club will be aiming to take another step towards a 9th FA Cup triumph.

Outright Betting

Both Premier League meetings this season ended all-square and a repeat on Sunday is on offer at 12/5 with Bet 365.

A Leicester win is trading at 17/10 with PaddyPower while Chelsea are 6/4 with Coral to conquer the King Power.

Betting Angles

This looks like a tricky fixture to tackle from a betting perspective given that Leicester have gone off the boil while Chelsea will travel north following an energy-sapping success at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night.

However, with fixtures coming thick fast, I do think this FA Cup quarter-final clash could represent a good opportunity to make use of Bet 365's Bet Builder feature.

One combination that caught my eye is over one match goal, over five match corners and both teams to receive at least one card at 4/5 (Bet 365) – a combination that clicked when these two teams clashed at the King Power back in February.

I cashed in on Chelsea's defence frailties last weekend and I fancy at least a couple of goals in this cup tie given both teams have scored in all but four of Chelsea's 19 road trips this term.

What's more, both sides' average corners per game count in the Premier League this season sit at 10.3 and 10.4 respectively and with that in mind, six or more match corners doesn't look like too much to ask for on Sunday.

I'm also happy to back both teams to pick up at least one booking in this bout given that card-happy Mike Dean will be the man in the middle at the King Power on Sunday.

That line of thought has also lured towards backing Leicester to collect at least two cards in this last-eight showdown at odds of 8/11 with Bet 365.

Indeed, Leicester sit second-bottom in the cards received table this season, however, given that Mike Dean has the whistle coupled with Chelsea's attacking threat, I fancy the Foxes to pick up at least two cards in this contest.

However, as a means of squeezing a bit more value out of two or more Leicester cards I'm going to add at least two Leicester corners and that combination will boost the price up to 4/5 with Bet 365.
