Chelsea Plots a Revenge Against Leicester With This Predicted Lineup

It is still fresh into our minds how Chelsea were beaten in their race for an FA cup in the finals against Leicester at Stamford Bridge. Leicester scored the only goal of the match in the 63rd minute through Youri Tielemans the midfielder. The Blues backed off but the Belgium midfielder is at least 25 yard out when he lets rip at goal, finding the top-left corner with a stunning long-range effort and Kepa couldn't get anywhere near it.

Today Chelsea is hosting the Foxes for EPL match week 37. On 12 May the Blues were beaten 1-0 by Arsenal. They are now at position four with 64 points just a point ahead of Liverpool who have 63 points. Leicester are at position three with 66 points. Chelsea's aim is to make sure they maintain the top four for UEFA ticket next season. If they slide today and Liverpool wins their next game, then Chelsea will be dragged out of top four.

This is the squad that has plotted a revenge against Leicester for a match that will be live from Stamford Bridge at 22:15 EAT. Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen are Predicted to be back in today's squad. Even though Kepa lost as the goalkeeper in the last two matches, he may still start as Thomas Tuchel wants to preserve Mendy for UCL final.

Chilwell and James will be starting in either left wing or right wing in the defense while Rudiger, Zouma and Azplicuetta will be the defensive duo at the back. Kovacic and Kante will be partnering in the middle. Mount, Harvertz and Pulisic will be the striking duo to make the strikes. Werner will also sub Pulisic during the match and Jorginho will be subbing Kovacic.
