Chelsea are set to face Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night as they look to bounce back from a hard-fought defeat in the FA Cup final. They hope to secure their current position, being on third, in the Premier League table with two games remaining as the season comes to an end.

The Foxes come into the match on the back of a thrilling 5-1 victory over Watford, whereas the Blues lost the chance to lift the FA Cup losing 5-6 over penalties to Liverpool.

Timo Werner is doubtful to feature after reportedly being injured before the last fixture. Furthermore, Thiago Silva could be benched after being sighted with muscular problems as he was taken off before the penalties despite finishing in the FA Cup final. Kai Havertz could return for the clash in the midweek after dealing with a hamstring injury.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell are unlikely to feature for the remainder of the games this season.

Thomas Tuchel would probably opt for the 3-4-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last match.

Edouard Mendy is expected to start in goal for the Blues. The shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet.

Andreas Christensen could start at the heart of the Blues’ backline, whereas Antonio Rudiger should feature at the left centre-back spot. Cesar Azpilicueta would fulfil the right centre-back position.


N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic might fulfil the holding midfield positions, with the former occupying a more central role. The pair would be looking to dominate the midfield proceedings.

Marco Alonso features at the left wing-back position, whereas Reece James will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back. The duo is expected to stay compact and create some meaningful chances in the final third.


Kai Havertz and Mason Mount will slot into the attacking midfield roles. The duo would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the forward.

Romelu Lukaku might lead the line for Chelsea in the midweek. The 29-year-old striker will be hoping to find the back of the net when he faces off against the Foxes’ defence.
