Christensen doubtful for Leicester trip

Match Preview
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri could be without Andreas Christensen for Sunday's game against Leicester City in the Premier League.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri could be without Andreas Christensen for Sunday’s game against Leicester City in the Premier League.

The Dane is a doubt for the game at the King Power Stadium after he suffered an injury on Thursday in the Europa League.

Christensen hobbled off during the Blues’ Europa League semi-final second-leg penalty shoot-out win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek should be available to face the Foxes despite limping off with cramp on Thursday.

Chelsea could finish as high as third when they travel to Leicester but they go into the game against the Foxes knowing they cannot finish lower than fourth.

Leicester are looking to complete the league double over Chelsea for the first time since the 2000-01 campaign, having won the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge 1-0.

However, Sarri’s men should be confident of finishing off the Premier League with a win as they are unbeaten in their last six matches.
