Can Chelsea come back from that god awful week? Let's take a look at Flash's Notes.
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">Chelsea v Leicester City</h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Sun 18th August @ Stamford Bridge</strong></p><p> </p><h2>CHELSEA:</h2><p>Chelsea should take a lot of confidence from their opening 65 minutes of the season away at Old Trafford. The scoreline of 0-4 was a freak, as Frank Lampard’s side had 18 shots on goal and hit the woodwork twice. Last years Europa League winners showed energy and movement, if that is repeated we will see them gain all three points. The midfield was quick to seize upon any stray passes and then immediately looked to get on the front foot and attack at the first chance they got.</p><p><strong>KEY Strength: </strong>Take Chances Early</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness:</strong> Long straight balls</p><p> </p><h2>LEICESTER CITY:</h2><p>Leicester opened up their Premier League campaign with a goalless draw against Wolves with over 70% possession, this looks impressive on paper but what does not impress is just a solitary shot on goal. Passing sideways and attacking down blind alley’s will leave the Foxes vulnerable against the high press and vision of Chelsea. In my opinion Brenden Rodgers still has to find the right balance in his team selection.</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness:</strong> To many Short Passes</p><p><strong>KEY Strength: </strong>Maddison if given time</p><p> </p><h2>BETTING ANALYSIS :</h2><p>Chelsea will be on the front foot early and have to much energy and craft for this Leicester defence minus Maguire. Expect Leicester to continue putting square pegs in round holes ref:selection. This is a real opportunity for Chelsea to get ahead early and be rewarded with goals and a comfortable victory.</p><p><strong>TIPS: <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/chelsea-fc-vs-leicester-city-3838788/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Chelsea to WIN @1.85 Chelsea -1 @3.10</a></strong></p><p><strong>Recommended odds at: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">William Hill</a> &amp; TitanBet</strong></p></div>
