There are some very big matches this weekend in the Premier League, with the two biggest bookending the Saturday action. Leicester City was stunned Tuesday in injury time of the Carabao Cup semifinal by Aston Villa, and Brendan Rodgers' team is regressing at an alarming rate: the Foxes have just three wins against top flight opponents (two others against EFL Championship teams in the F.A. Cup) since Dec. 8, with five losses and three draws over that period.

Chelsea has not been much better, though: the Blues have just four wins against Premier League sides (plus two others) since November ended, with five losses and two draws.The two teams right behind Chelsea (40 points) in the table will contest the 12:30 p.m contest, as Bruno Fernandes will take the pitch for the first time as a Red Devil against a whole host of his countrymen in the Wolverhampton side.

A win for either team (both on 34 points) could cut the gap down to the top four to just three points.
