Chelsea will still be reeling for their third consecutive FA Cup final defeat on Saturday, losing to Liverpool on penalties at Wembley, but the Blues felt a boost on Monday. Arsenal’s defeat to Newcastle United at St James’ Park means that Chelsea have secured spot in the top four without having to kick a single ball. Champions League football is confirmed for 2022/23.

Thomas Tuchel’s men now need just one point from their final two matches to finish third (unless Tottenham enjoy a goal difference swing of 18), which puts Chelsea in an interesting position. Do they call their season early and play their fringe players, or go all out for the final two matches to give their home fans something to celebrate?

Leicester also have nothing to play for, unable to qualify for European football, so will be looking to end their season on a high. The Foxes have underperformed in the league this season, losing more games than they have won and have the worst defence in the top half of the Premier League table, conceding 57 goals.

However, they will come into this game with some momentum behind them. The Foxes have won both of their past two matches, beating already-relegated Norwich City and Watford 3-0 and 5-1 respectively. The brace of victories ended Leicester’s seven-game winless run across all competitions which also saw them knocked out of the Europa Conference League.

Chelsea vs Leicester match stats

Romelu Lukaku was unable to find the net for Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday but his performances have improved in recent weeks. The Belgian has scored three goals in his past two Premier League matches, including two against Wolves in his last Stamford Bridge appearance.

With there being very little on the line for either side, we could see Chelsea and Leicester cancel each other out. Chelsea have conceded 10 goals their past four league matches at Stamford Bridge, while Leicester have scored eight in their past two games.
