Chelsea v Leicester City Match Preview & Trends

Foxes Aiming To Repeat Cup Heorics To Inspire Top-4 Dreams

It is not a simple case of seeking revenge for Thomas Tuchel and his Chelsea team, just days after their F.A Cup Final defeat to Leicester who they face again on Tuesday night. With the sides neck and neck in the race for the Champions League places, there is once more a lot on the line in this fixture. Brendan Rodgers goes up against his former employers knowing that a defeat for either side could be catastrophic in terms of a top-4 place with recently de-throned champions Liverpool having an easier run-in on paper and being in control over their own destiny.

A huge contest awaits us at Stamford Bridge, a game with huge repercussions for the losers and if the match end in a draw then it will place massive pressure on the final day of the season where Leicester face a tricky trip to Tottenham and Chelsea will have one eye on the Champions League Final as a potential distraction. The stakes couldn’t be higher!
