How Chelsea's recent results could steer them to another win against Leicester City

The cloud of uncertainty seems to be clearing out over West London club, Chelsea. The club are gradually sailing in the right direction with the current turn outs. Graham Potter can now settle down and select a formidable team to get better results, but could all of this be real or a facade?

Chelsea football club haven't had the best of season. They sit in 10th place, below the qualification zone for the UEFA Europa League. Although they managed to bounce back to winning ways against a deliberate Leeds United side, they still need to do more to convince many they are back in business.

Thankfully for the Blues, they faced a bigger test over the week when they took on German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. The Blues went all out to secure qualification with a 2-0 win over the German side, edging them 2-1 on aggregate.Goals from Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz were enough to grant them access to the next round of the competition.

The Blues have won only nine of their 25 league matches, seven have ended in draws, and the remaining nine ended in defeat. Based on their current form, their travel to the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon should see them put up a brilliant performance.

Chelsea are yet to win two consecutive games so far and this presents a great opportunity to break the jinx. Leicester City on the other hand are having a rise and fall season. The Foxes find themselves three points above the relegation zone after back-to-back defeats.

Brendan Rodgers could pull up a stunner when they welcome Chelsea to their home ground. They have done it before against Tottenham Hotspur and they are capable of taking advantage of any opportunity that presents itself.

Graham Potter needs to caution his team against undermining Leicester City's poor form. A win against Leicester City could release the pressure on Potter and make room for the Englishman to think clearly.
