The race for Champions League qualification is set to reach its climax with Leicester, Chelsea and Liverpool all vying for the final two spots in the top four.

On Tuesday, Chelsea and Leicester will once again do battle following Saturday’s FA Cup Final in a decisive match for European qualification.

The Foxes defeated Thomas Tuchel’s side on the weekend to claim their first-ever FA Cup with Youri Tielemans’ strike clinching the win.

The west London club will now be out for revenge and with the game being in front of supporters at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea hold an advantage.

Chelsea vs Leicester City: Match preview

Tuesday’s clash between Chelsea and Leicester is set to have huge implications on Champions League qualification.

Chelsea head into the fixture sat fourth on 64 points and a goal difference of 22.

Leicester are currently third with 66 points and a goal difference of 21.

Meanwhile, a late Alisson Becker header against West Brom on Sunday means Liverpool also remain in the hunt for the top four.

The Reds travel to Burnley tomorrow sat in fifth on 63 and the same goal difference as Leicester.

Should Jurgen Klopp’s side take the three points at Turf Moor they will leapfrog either side to move into the top four.

Liverpool being held by Burnley would still see them move above Tuchel’s side if the Blues lose at Stamford Bridge.

Leicester are the only side who can confirm their qualification for the Champions League with a win.

Leicester’s FA Cup triumph

At their fifth attempt, Leicester finally won their first FA Cup Final as they defeated Chelsea 1-0.

Youri Tielemans scored a memorable FA Cup goal with a wicked strike on minute 63.

Brendan Rodgers will now be hoping to cap off the season by securing a place in the top four.

They looked to once again be unravelling following their 4-2 defeat to Newcastle.

However, a win at Old Trafford has them back on track and in pole position heading into the penultimate fixture.

Chelsea team news vs Leicester City

Mateo Kovacic is set to hand Chelsea a major boost by returning from injury.

The midfielder has missed the last five games with a thigh injury.

Kovacic has been a key component of the Blues’ success this season and he has been a big miss for them.

Andreas Christensen is also expected to make his return from injury.

He could be thrust straight back into the line-up following back to back defeats without him.

Leicester City team news vs Chelsea

Jonny Evans is likely to miss out with his return from injury being quickly cut short in Saturday’s cup final.

The defender only managed to last 34 minutes before being forced off with an ankle injury.

This could force Brendan Rodgers into readjusting his system back to a 4-4-2.

Cengiz Under, James Justin and Harvey Barnes all remain unavailable for Tuesday’s game.
