Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips shares his favourite fancy from the penultimate round of fixtures in the Premier League on Thursday, with Chelsea's meeting with Leicester City under the microscope.

Chelsea vs Leicester (Thursday, 20:00)

After suffering penalty shootout heartache to Liverpool in the FA Cup final at the weekend, Chelsea return to Premier League action with a home match against Leicester City on Thursday night.

The Blues have blown hot and cold in recent months but they require just one point from their final two league games to secure third place in the table.

As for Leicester, they are finishing the season strongly having won their last two league games and another triumph here would ensure a top-half finish.

With both teams in position where they can approach this match with a fairly relaxed attitude, Thursday’s contest looks a difficult one to call despite the pair’s contrasting runs of form in recent weeks

As such, it is probably best to avoid this fixture from a 1X2 betting perspective and I’m therefore happy to highlight an alternative angle by backing Leicester to to hit three or more corners at 11/10 with UniBet.

Following their exit from the Europa Conference League, Leicester look like a side that are playing with the shackles off given that they have little left to play for.

That should give the visitors a little bit more freedom to express themselves on Thursday night and I reckon over three Leicester corners represents a bit of value here at an odds-against quote.

Leicester have generally been reliable corner performers under Brendan Rodgers watch, with the King Power club averaging 5.06 flag kicks per-game this season, a tally that increases to 5.11 away from home.

What’s more, the Foxes have covered the 4+ line in 14 of their last 18 Premier League outings, a sample that includes visits to Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United.

With this in mind, as well as the likelihood of Chelsea being low in spirits going into this contest, I’m more than happy to side with four or more Leicester corners at 11/10 (UniBet).
