Recommended bets

Chelsea are looking to complete a first league double over Leicester since 2017. The Foxes though have actually only lost two of their last six trips to Stamford Bridge.

Match preview

Has Chelsea’s season been a success? Well, in truth, it’s very difficult to tell.

The Blues lifted the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup earlier in the campaign, but haven’t added any further silverware.

On Saturday, they faced Wembley cup final déjà vu, playing out a goalless draw against Liverpool with a penalty shootout was required.

César Azpilicueta and Mason Mount both saw their efforts from 12 yards saved, meaning it was more shootout heartbreak for the Blues.

Back in the Premier League, Thomas Tuchel’s team secured a top four finish last midweek, hammering Leeds United 3-0 at Elland Road.

So, despite only winning three of eight league games since the start of April, two points from their last two fixtures will secure third.

Of course, this is all taking place with the backdrop of Roman Abramovich having been sanctioned and Todd Boehly’s attempted takeover.

As a result, it’s been a solid season for Chelsea who are hoping for some certainty and, ultimately, more silverware under the new regime next season.

As for Leicester City, their campaign has contained some memorable moments but, after back-to-back fifth place finishes, this has been a disappointment.

This year will be remembered for the Foxes’ run a first-ever European semi-final, beating Randers, Stade Rennais and then PSV Eindhoven.

However, they fell just short in the Europa Conference League, bowing out to Roma in the last four after a 1-0 reverse at Stadio Olimpico.

Brendan Rodgers’ team went all in on that competition because they’re not going to get back into Europe via their league position.

Leicester won just four of their first 16 Premier League games in 2020, but do actually come into this one in good form.

The Foxes hammered Norwich City 3-0 last midweek before Sunday’s 5-1 drubbing of the other already relegated club Watford.

James Maddison equalising at Vicarage Road with both Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes bagged braces.

Thus, Leicester are looking to score 3+ in three consecutive Premier League games for the fourth time, last doing so in September 2020.

This though will, obviously, be a much tougher challenge with Chelsea confident of winning their final match at Stamford Bridge of the season.

Germany strike duo Kai Havertz and Timo Werner both sat out Saturday’s FA Cup Final with the former not even on the bench.

Meanwhile, Ben Chilwell has been spotted in training this week so would love some minuets against his former club.

The left-back hasn’t played since 20 November away to Leicester due to a ruptured cruciate ligament.

Romelu Lukaku will continue to lead the line, looking to score in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since September 2017.

Hakim Ziyech could come in for Christian Pulisic, completing the front three along-with Mason Mount.

Mount has both scored and assisted in six different league games this season, the most of any Chelsea player in a single campaign.

At the back, the departing Andreas Christensen has played his last game for the club having ruled himself out of contention.

Also, having played 120 minutes of Saturday, Thiago Silva isn’t likely to start again, with César Azpilicueta or Malang Sarr coming in.

Fit again N’Golo Kanté or Ruben Loftus-Cheek could freshen up midfield, displacing Mateo Kovačić or Jorginho.

The Foxes are ruing the long-term absence of Wilfred Ndidi; how their European fortunes might have been different if he’d been available.

Without Ndidi, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has become a key figure in midfield, starting 24 of their last 26 games.

Goalkeeper Danny Ward made his Premier League debut for the club at Watford, almost four years after joining, but Kasper Schmeichel will be reinstated here.

At the back, Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana are the first-choice duo, chosen over Daniel Amartey and Çağlar Söyüncü.

With Ricardo Pereira a doubt, Timothy Castagne and James Justin will keep their places at full-back.

Youri Tielemans wrote his name into Leicester City history 12 months ago, scoring the winning goal in the FA Cup Final against Chelsea.

Another Foxes legend, Jamie Vardy, has now netted six times in his last six Premier League starts, including back-to-back braces.

He needs just two more to become the first Premier League player to score 100 goals after their 30th birthday.

Vardy could continue to lead the line, chosen over Kelechi Ịheanachọ and Patson Daka.
