Chelsea host Leicester City in the Premier League on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge looking for revenge following the FA Cup final defeat.
Thomas Tuchel’s men fell to a dismal 1-0 defeat at Wembley on Saturday against Leicester to suffer back-to-back defeats in the FA Cup final.
They will want revenge as the battle for the top four intensifies. Chelsea can’t afford to slip up and drop any further points otherwise their spot in the Champions League spots will be in huge jeopardy.
Chelsea are expected to have Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen back in the squad on Tuesday. Despite being deemed fit by Tuchel on Saturday, they were left out, but the Blues boss hinted that the duo will come back into the fold for the league clash.
Jonny Evans is out of the trip to Stamford Bridge, as is Cengiz Under with a hip problem. The rest of the Foxes’ squad will be assessed, but no other injuries have been reported.
Kick-off gets underway at 20:15 UK time.
