Leicester City host Chelsea at the King Power stadium on 29 April as the Blues look to take one massive step towards sealing the league title.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. Live coverage of the game will be on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD.


Leicester City have hit on a rich vein of form, winning four on the bounce, their best performance in the Premier League this season. Their form has turned the relegation battle on its head, with the Foxes now one point clear of the drop zone, having spent the major part of the campaign languishing at the bottom.

However, with Hull City winning their game against Liverpool on 28 April, the pressure is on Leicester to open up a gap between themselves and Sunderland. Aston Villa are currently located a point above them, having played a game more.

Nigel Pearson, who was sacked and reinstated in a bizarre situation earlier in the season has changed his team's fortunes around by tweaking the system and is a prime contender for the manager of the year award should he be able to keep his team in the league next season.

Meanwhile, Chelsea come into the game knowing that they require six points from their last five games to secure the title. A win here and the next weekend would secure the title after their 0-0 draw with Arsenal last weekend.

The Blues were castigated for their style of play against the Gunners but the two-time Champions League winner defended his tactics, stating that his ultimate goal was to win the title over everything else.

What Managers Say

Nigel Pearson: "I would say it is very probable he will know Mourinho's approach. It will be discussed - of course it will. The bottom line is we come up against a side who are very accomplished, who have a lot of talent in there and are in the driving seat in terms of league position. I think Jose will have a healthy respect for Esteban but then I think he has a healthy respect for all his opponents and his preparation for games would be exceptionally thorough for every team they come up against."

Jose Mourinho: "For me it's a good team, good players. I played them very early in the season at Stamford Bridge (winning 2 0 in August). I could immediately feel the quality of the team. I was surprised that they were in a bad position. I'm not surprised they are out of the relegation zone. I will not be surprised when they stay in the division. Their situation is very good. For the quality of their team, I think they are going to survive."
