Ricardo Pereira believes Leicester City can beat Chelsea
The international break is over and club football has returned. This weekend, we will get to experience an exciting fixture in the Premier League between Chelsea and Leicester City. Portugal and Leicester City defender, Ricardo Pereira gave his verdict on the upcoming match during an interview with Leicester City’s official matchday magazine:
“We know it’s going to be very tough. They are showing great qualities this year and deservedly sit at the top of the league.
“Chelsea are always a difficult team to play, but especially at the moment with the momentum and quality they have.
“They have good players, a top coach, and we’ll have to be at our very best to get the win.
“We focus on ourselves. If we’re at our best, then we have a great chance of winning.
“We’ve beaten Chelsea before, so we know we have the ability. We always look at our opposition, and this game is no different, but it’s so important to focus on ourselves.
“We’ll be going into the game with a positive mindset.”
Clearly, the upcoming fixture is an important game for both sides. Leicester City also knows the current form of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, as they are first on the league table with 26 points after 11 games. On top of that, they have conceded the fewest goal in the league, 6, and have the joint most clean sheets, 7.
Ricardo Pereira may be right about his verdict; a look at Leicester’s head-to-head with Chelsea in their last five games, Chelsea and Leicester City have each won 2 games while the other ended in a draw. This is a fixture you do not want to miss.
