Leicester are in third place and eight points ahead of Chelsea FC after the Foxes ended a two-game losing run with a resounding 4-1 victory over West Ham United last time out.
Former Spurs striker Berbatov is backing Leicester and Chelsea FC to share the spoils at the King Power Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.
“Leicester are looking to get back on form and they will be feeling down after losing last minute to Aston Villa in the league cup and missing out on a chance to go to a final at Wembley,” Betfair pundit Berbatov told Metro.
“They will need to pick their heads up and they are at home so they will have the support behind them, but I think Chelsea will be too strong to give them all three points.”
Chelsea FC played out a 1-1 draw with Leicester at Stamford Bridge back in August when Mason Mount found the net for the west London side.
