EPL Match of the Week: Leicester City vs. Chelsea

We'll have to wait until Monday for this week's EPL Match of the Week, but it should be a great one all the same.

It's the two most surprising teams of the season, if you ask me: Chelsea vs. Leicester City. However, their surprises have been for wildly different reasons.

Chelsea, last year's champions, currently sit in 14th place with just 15 points from 15 matches.

Leicester, who only barely avoided relegation last season, sit in first place in the shock of the season.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahre have led the way for Leicester in their renaissance, as Vardy leads the scoring charts in the division and Mahrez is being celebrated as one of the league's best midfield, especially after his hat trick last week.
Leicester are coming off a huge 3-0 win over Swansea City with led to the subsequent sacking of Gary Monk for the Swans.

Their form has been super and it's time we take them seriously.

Chelsea, on the other hand, continue to struggle.

While they had a good week by qualifying for the Champions League final 16 to salvage some hope of silverware, their EPL form has been dreadful.
The midweek win over Porto and the qualification will definitely have spirits high in Chelsea's camp but it cannot be ignored that the players just aren't getting it together in the same way they did last year. Manager Jose Mourinho is under fire and deservedly so.

Prediction

I never thought I'd say this at the beginning of the season, but I believe Leicester can do it. I think they're going to add to their amazing run and continue to put Chelsea to shame.

I'll say Leicester 2, Chelsea 1. Bang.

What do you think? I know @mchlyang will disagree and hopes Chelsea will pull it off but can they do so against the hottest team in the league?
