Chelsea – Leicester: Edward Medy regains his starting position

Chelsea host Leicester City on Tuesday afternoon, their striker in the FA Cup final last weekend for the penultimate day of the Premier League. Edouard Mendy finds his place in the original XI.

Absent from the Blues’ last two games, Edouard Mendy will regain his place in Thomas Tuchel’s starting line-up for this crucial meeting between Chelsea and Leicester City on Tuesday afternoon at Stamford Bridge. A remake of the FA Cup final last weekend between the two teams that were crowned the winners of the Foxes in front of the Blues.

Chelsea, 4th with 66 points behind their opponent, Leicester (3rd with 67 points) is obliged to win to secure a place in the Champions League next season and not to hit a third consecutive defeat. Eleven days before the final, the Blues must regain their confidence and not put pressure on themselves.
