Chelsea travel to the King Power Stadium on Wednesday with their first Premier League crown since 2010 within touching distance.

The celebrations led by captain John Terry at the Emirates Stadium said it all about Chelsea’s goalless draw against Arsenal.

The draw ended their series of four wins in a row, but the one-pointer pulls the leaders one step closer to the title they have been set on winning from day one.

Two wins is now all that Chelsea need and, if they can pick up 3 points in Leicester on Wednesday, they will head to Stamford Bridge on Sunday knowing that a win against Crystal Palace will secure the title for them.

Chelsea have won their last five Premier League games against Leicester, including the reverse meeting earlier this season when they won 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Leicester City meanwhile just climbed out of the relegation zone for the first time since November and head into the game looking for a fifth-successive victory in a single top-flight season for the first time since 1964.

Saturday’s 1-0 win at Burnley lifted the Foxes to 17th, a point clear of danger but, despite their superb form during April, manager Nigel Pearson knows there is still plenty of work ahead.

“It’s been very satisfying to get four wins and it gives us a realistic chance,” he said. “The only thing that matters is that we’re out of the bottom three after 38 games. To do that we have to remain focused.

“There is still a lot of football to be played. Every game now has something riding on it. There’s lots left to do.

“We want to try to win this next game. It will be hard against Chelsea, but there’s no reason not to look at it positively.”

Diego Costa and Loic Remy remain uncertain for Chelsea. There are also doubts over Oscar after taking a blow to the head against Arsenal.
For Leicester, David Nugent and Jeffrey Schlupp remain doubtful.
