It hasn’t been the season both the teams had hoped for. The Blues were expected to challenge the duopoly of Manchester City and Liverpool. However, they have failed to close the gap between these two teams.
While the Foxes had been troubling the traditional top six teams in the race for a top-four finish, however, this season it looks like they ran out of steam. Perhaps this season there will be no European football for the away side.
Thus both the teams don’t have much to fight for in the remaining games of the season. However, for their fans both of them will play with the sole intent of getting three points. The managers are likely to make sure that their players show full professionalism in this game.
Timo Werner is out injured for the game. It is unclear whether Kai Havertz and Matteo Kovacic will be available or not. Andreas Christensen is also a doubt for the game. While Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi both are out injured.
The trio of Ryan Bertrand, Wilfred Ndidi and Hamza Choudhury have been ruled out for the game. Ricardo Pereira and Youri Tielemans will go late fitness tests.
Chelsea: Edouard Mendy, Reece James, Antonio Rudiger, Trevh Chalobah, Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus Cheek, Marcos Alonso, Mason Mount, Romelu Lukaku, Christian Pulisic.
Leicester City: Kasper Schmeichel; James Justin, Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana, Ricardo Pereira; Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Youri Tielemans; Marc Albrighton, Ademola Lookman, James Maddison; Jamie Vardy
The two managers have locked horns three times. The former is winless against the latter, while the German has two wins to his name. One game ended in a stalemate.
It can be seen why the Blues missed the Englishman so much this season. With his arrival their more control over the right wing. Not only is this with him in the team but there are also often more chances of chance creation as well. To add to it, the former Reading player is strong defensively and opponents find it hard to play against him.
Just like James, the Foxes have missed the Englishman this season. He has often been their talisman but the is no longer that young. However, he is still dangerous and he can still make dangerous runs behind defenders. Now he is more experienced as well and he will know when and how to time his runs better as well.
Goalkeeper: Eduard Mendy
Defenders: Recce James, Antonio Rudiger, Çağlar Söyüncü, James Justin
Midfielders: Youri Tielemans, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Christian Pulisic, Dewsbury Hall
Attacker: Jamie Vardy
The Blues have been a bit shaky at the back in recent times. However, the Foxes are also shakier at the back than the home side. Thus with more quality and options from the bench, Tuchel’s men should be able to get the job done at home.
