Charlie Nicholas is tipping Chelsea to win at Leicester in the Premier League on Monday Night Football.
The Soccer Saturday pundit nailed all four correct results in his latest round of Champions League predictions, a 16/1 accumulator in his Sky Bet tips, and fancies Chelsea to record a victory at the King Power Stadium.
Here are the Soccer Saturday pundit's views on the Monday Night Football clash...
Leicester v Chelsea (Monday 8pm, live on Sky Sports 1HD)
Leicester's run of games can be perceived as exciting or daunting and the thing about runs like this around busy periods is they really test to strength of your squad.
If they do lose top spot then they're looking over their shoulders and worrying about dropping out of the top four next, which can be quite daunting after reaching the summit.
The other thing is Leicester will now be expecting to win this game but can we really say they are favourites to? Arsenal beat them and they failed to beat Tottenham and Manchester United. I certainly don't wish it on them but I think if there's one man that will give them the respect they deserve and find a way of stopping them then it's Jose Mourinho.
Jose reverted to the old style midweek and I genuinely do believe that they aren't far away from getting back into the groove. They didn't lose that much ground on the top sides last week and they still have that top-four incentive in front of them.
I think it's 26 games since Eden Hazard has scored for Chelsea, which is just ridiculous for a guy of his talent and ability and I'm backing him to fire Chelsea to victory.
Charlie predicts: 1-3 with Hazard to score first (80/1 with Sky Bet)
