No one is enjoying spoiling the top four’s Christmas party more than Leicester City! After beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for the first time in 18 years, Claude Puel’s men directly followed that up with a win over ‘unstoppable’ Manchester City. “This was fantastic, we created the upset”, exclaimed jubilant Leicester manager Claude Puel on Boxing Day.
Weathering the early storm will likely be key to any Leicester joy, as 68% of their conceded PL goals have come in the first half, with nearly a third (27%) being shipped in the first 15 minutes.
There doesn’t seem to be much danger of that here however, as Cardiff are one of just two sides yet to register an away win in the PL this season (D2, L7), and they have the lowest away goals tally to boot with just five.
