Chelsea vs Leicester City: Tuchel names squad for EPL clash after FA Cup final defeat


Chelsea will be looking to end a run of two successive losses when they face Leicester City for the second time in the space of just four days.

Tuesday’s game will be played at Stamford Bridge by 8:15pm.

Thomas Tuchel’s men lost 1-0 to the Foxes in Saturday’s FA Cup final at Wembley.

It was their second defeat of the week, as they lost 1-0 to Arsenal in the Premier League days before.

The loss robbed them of the opportunity to move above Leicester on the table and into third place.

Ahead of the match, Tuchel has not reported any fresh injury concerns but hinted that Andreas Christensen and Mateo Kovacic, are not quite fit enough to make the squad at the weekend.

Full Chelsea squad available to face Leicester:

Goalkeepers: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Willy Caballero & Edouard Mendy.

Defenders: Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, Valentino Livramento, Ben Chilwell, Marcos Alonso & Emerson.

Midfielders: Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Billy Gilmour, Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Faustino Anjorin & Jorginho.

Strikers: Tammy Abraham, Timo Werner & Olivier Giroud.
