Michael Owen is tipping Leicester City to come out on top in a high-scoring game against Chelsea FC at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues will make the trip to Leicester in their final Premier League fixture of the season after Maurizio Sarri’s men reached the Europa League final on Thursday night.

Chelsea FC managed to book their place in the Europa League showpiece following a 4-3 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on penalties in the second leg of their semi-final.

Sarri’s side have already made certain of their place in next season’s Champions League after the Blues were 3-0 winners against their London rivals Watford last weekend.

Leicester eased to a 3-0 victory over Chelsea FC’s Europa League final opponents Arsenal in their last fixture at the King Power Stadium before the Foxes battled valiantly against Manchester City but could not stop Vincent Kompany from netting a wonder-goal in the second half.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing Leicester to edge to victory over Chelsea FC in their Premier League meeting on Sunday afternoon.

“Chelsea are guaranteed a spot in the Champions League next term and the hope is that they are also Europa League finalists by the time they visit the King Power Stadium on Sunday,” Owen told BetVictor.

“The Foxes are, however, looking to do the double over the Blues and, if there is to be a winner, I think the hosts will edge another entertaining game.”

Chelsea FC will be looking to win the Europa League for the second time in their history after Rafael Benitez led the Blues to glory over Benfica in Amsterdam back in 2013.

The Blues have failed to win a European trophy in the past six seasons.
