Chelsea gear up to face Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night, after being defeated in the FA Cup final. They are in the third position in the Premier League table and hope to remain there with two games remaining as the season comes to a close.

The Foxes come into the match on the back of an astonishing 5-1 victory over Watford, whereas the blues lost 5-6 over penalties to Liverpool, failing to bring home the silverware.

Leicester City

Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was benched for Danny Ward in the win over Watford, but the Danish shot-stopper is expected to return to the XI for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Nampalys Mendy was taken off early in the previous match, so he may be doubtful to start, while Wilfred Ndidi, Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira remain sidelined alongside Hamza Choudhury, who has picked up a knock.

Leicester City Predicted XI

Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Justin; Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Key Men

Chelsea

Lukaku and Havertz will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Blues up top. Both of them would have to be at the top of their game if Chelsea are to emerge victorious this weekend.

The performance of Kanye and Kovacic could go a long way in determining the fate of this contest.

Leicester City

Kasper Schmeichel needs to have a good game if the Foxes are to keep a clean sheet. Leicester city will rely on the creativity of James Maddison and Youri Tielemans for this game.
