Michael Owen is tipping there to be plenty of goals when Leicester City host Chelsea in the Premier League at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues head into the game looking to build on their good recent form after victories over Tottenham and Everton.

Antonio Conte is hoping to help his Chelsea side defend their Premier League title this season after they won the trophy in style last term.

Chelsea are also preparing for a return to the group stage of the Champions League next week as they prepare to host Qarabag at Stamford Bridge.

And former England striker Owen is expecting to see plenty of goals when Chelsea take on the Foxes at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Owen wrote in his column for BetVictor: “Another game that looks a big one for a Saturday 3pm kick-off, with the last two winners of the Premier League Title meeting at the King Power.

“Danny Drinkwater made the move to West London on Deadline Day and looks sure to have the crowd on his back when returning in a game that should have plenty of fireworks.”

Chelsea have bounced back after they suffered a shock 3-2 loss to Burnley at Stamford Bridge on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.
