Leicester welcome Chelsea to the King Power Stadium in another round of league fixtures, with both sides enjoying FA Cup wins.

Romelu Lukaku (63) opened the scoring again for Everton, with the Belgian in excellent form this season and a key man for the Toffees.

New signing Ahmed Musa came good with two goals in quick succession (66 and 71), to give Leicester a much needed away win.

Consistency Needed

Given Leicester's away form this season that was a good response, they will be looking to back that up in the Premier League though.

They face a Chelsea side who have won 13 of their last 14 matches, with Tottenham ending their incredible run.

The Foxes face former midfielder N'Golo Kante who was incredible last season, his influence has been reflected in both sides fortunes.

Champions Leicester find themselves 15th in the Premier League, 14 places and 25 points behind leaders Chelsea, Kante has been crucial so far.

Leicester Underdogs

Leicester come into this match as the underdogs, with Chelsea's recent dominance and Leicester's inconsistent form.

They will be looking to avenge the 3-0 defeat earlier on in the season, a defeat that would have dented the Foxes confidence.

Ranieri's side will be looking to better their overall record against Chelsea, with the Foxes winning 18, drawing 23 and losing 39 of their 80 meetings.

Leicester are 9/2 with Jamie Vardy at 8/1 to score first.


Return To Winning Ways

Chelsea come into this match on the back of a 4-1 win in the FA Cup, a home win against Peterborough an ideal response to the Spurs defeat.

Pedro opened the scoring for the Blues in the 18th minute, with the Spaniard enjoying life under new manager Antonio Conte.

Michi Batshuayi (43) doubled the advantage for the Blues, with the Belgian finding chances hard to come by with Costa's outstanding form.

Willian (52) made it 3-0 after the break, with Chelsea completely dominant at this stage, before John Terry was sent off in the 67th minute.

Tom Nichols (70) ensured the Posh left with something, before Pedro completed his double five minutes later to complete the scoring.

Return To Winning Ways

That result means that Chelsea are now in the fourth round, with a home tie against Brentford in a fortnight's time.

They are still top of the league despite losing to Tottenham, although they have now had the gap closed to five points.

Without the pressure of European football, Chelsea will be looking to compete on all fronts domestically.

They will be looking to return to winning ways, they will also be looking to complete a double over Leicester.

Burnley vs Southampton – Saturday 14th January 2017 – 15:00 


Burnley welcome Southampton to Turf Moor in another round of league fixtures, with both sides drawing their FA Cup matches.

Sean Dyche's side come into this match on the back of another dismal away performance, albeit against Sunderland in the FA Cup.

It was a match that saw Joey Barton make his second debut for the club, with the Rangers move failing miserably.

He could not inspire Burnley to a first away win of the season though, with the Clarets unable to trouble the scorers again.

The draw is Burnley's first for a long time, their last draw coming against Manchester United in October.

Clarets In Mixed Form

Burnley come into this match in mixed recent form, with two wins, three defeats and a draw in their last six.

They will be looking to avenge the 3-1 defeat against Claude Puel's side earlier in the season, Burnley have been excellent at home.

Dyche's men will be looking to make it a third win in seven matches, Barton could make his Premier League debut for the Clarets.

Burnley Underdogs

The Clarets excellent home record continues, they will look to win their 8th game at home this season.

Their record is one of the best in the league, with only Chelsea and United faring better at home.

Sean Dyche's men will be looking to better their overall form against Southampton, with Burnley winning 7, drawing 9 and losing 10 of 26 meetings.

Burnley are 13/5 with Andre Gray at 6/1 to score first. 


Saints In Great Form

The Saints come into this match on the back of a 1-0 win against Liverpool, with a crucial advantage taken in the EFL Cup.

Nathan Redmond (20), got his side off to the perfect start, with the winger making the most of a Ragnar Klavan error.

Redmond wasted a hatful of chances on the night, those missed opportunities may come back to haunt Southampton.

Liverpool dominated possession at St.Mary's but in truth Southampton were far more clinical, they could have gone to Anfield with a much greater advantage.

Southampton Need Consistency

The Saints have had a reasonably mixed bag throughout the season, that win is their first in five matches though.

They had won just one of their last six matches, with two draws and three straight defeats in that sequence.

Claude Puel will be wanting his side to improve their Premier League form, with the Saints dropping below South Coast rivals Bournemouth.

Saints Favourites

Southampton come into this match as favourites, despite Burnley's excellent home form this season.

This will be a tough fixture for the Claude Puel's side, with Sean Dyche's side having an excellent season at home.

The Saints will be looking to continue their recent record against Burnley, they have won their last two meetings comfortably.

Southampton are 11/10 with Shane Long and Jay Rodriguez at 5/1 to open the scoring.
