Chelsea are out to bounce back from their FA Cup disappointment with a stong finish to the campaign – starting against Leicester on Thursday night.
Despite falling to another Wembley defeat at the hands of Liverpool, the Blues have had their place in next season’s Champions League confirmed and need only a point to effectively guarantee third position.
Two games on home turf will round off the campaign yet Thomas Tuchel’s side have underwhelmed at Stamford Bridge, winning fewer than half of their 17 home games so far this league season.
That said, Leicester have struggled to keep the goals out on the road and are set for a mid-table finish.
