Team News
Chelsea have been rocked by allegations of Andreas Christensen refusing to play in the FA Cup final and disappearing from the team hotel on the morning of the game, and he could have pulled on the blue jersey for the final time ahead of his summer exit.

Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi both remain out of contention, while Timo Werner is absent due to a fresh hamstring problem, and Klopp has concerns over Kai Havertz and Mateo Kovacic - the latter's ankle problem has now swelled up again.

N'Golo Kante's return to fitness could see the Frenchman return to the engine room after a bright cameo at Wembley, while Cesar Azpilicueta and Hakim Ziyech's fresh legs could come in handy after two hours of action in the capital.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Rudiger; James, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Ziyech, Mount; Lukaku

Leicester City
Meanwhile, Leicester number one Kasper Schmeichel was surprisingly benched for Danny Ward in the win over Watford, but the Danish shot-stopper is expected to return to the XI for the trip to Chelsea.

Nampalys Mendy was taken off early in that game due to sickness so may be spared from the off here, while Wilfred Ndidi, Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira remain sidelined alongside Hamza Choudhury, who has picked up a knock.

Marc Albrighton and Ademola Lookman are both ready to return to the starting lineup to cover for the affected Mendy in a slight change of shape for the visitors, who should otherwise stick with the winning formula from Vicarage Road.
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Justin; Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy
Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Leicester City
