GOOD EVENING FROM LONDON
Welcome to our live coverage of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Leicester at Stamford Bridge.
The two teams are set to lock horns for the second time in three days following the Foxes’ FA Cup triumph at Wembley on Saturday.
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is set to have a stronger side this time around as Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen may return from a hamstring and tendon injury respectively.
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers, on the other hand, will be without key defender Jonny Evans, who limped out of the pitch during last weekend’s final.
Evans was substituted during the first half as he appeared to still be dealing with a recurring heel problem from which he recently returned to action.
Cengiz Under is still a major doubt due to a hip issue whereas James Justin and Harvey Barnes remain sidelined with a knee injury.
But Rodgers will still have Youri Tielemans available in midfield after the Belgium international won the final for Leicester with a superb 30-yard screamer in the second half.
The ex-Liverpool boss will also start Kasper Schmeichel, who put together an incredible performance at Wembley when he denied two efforts from Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount with a couple of extraordinary saves
