Confirmed: Leicester City v Chelsea line-ups

Leicester City

Here are the confirmed teams for the game between Leicester and Chelsea this evening.

Leicester City will be looking to prolong their good run of form this evening, but it won’t be easy considering Chelsea are hunting the Premier League title. The Foxes deserve huge credit for the way they have battled in recent weeks to give themselves a chance of staying in the Premier League, when they looked doomed to go back down into the Championship. Leicester defended well at Burnley last weekend and took a chance to create an advantage, which they protected well.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be confident that his team can go about getting a good result. The Blues were superb against the Gunners last weekend. They weren’t flamboyant but no one can argue that Mourinho doesn’t know how to get the job done. He will set his team up to be difficult to beat and will back his players to win the key individual battles all over the pitch, which will make the difference over 90 minutes. Mourinho will want his team to secure the title as quickly as possible, which will allow the boss to start making changes.
