Leicester City v Chelsea

Match Preview

Leicester City will attempt to complete the league double over Chelsea for the first time since the 2000-01 campaign on Sunday.

The Foxes won 1-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier this season and will fancy their chances of taking another three points, although it won’t move them into contention for European football next season.

Chelsea have locked up their top-four position and might be weary from their penalty shoot-out win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League semi-final on Thursday night.

Maurizio Sarri’s side will be missing some key players too, including injured midfielder N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger – while fellow centre-back Andreas Christensen is a doubt after hobbling out of the match at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.

There is some good news, however, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek likely to be available, despite coming off late on against Eintracht due to cramp.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has no new injury issues ahead of the final Premier League match of the season.

Having recently penned a new deal, Christian Fuchs could be recalled after being an unused substitute against Manchester City on Monday.

Wes Morgan, Harvey Barnes, Kelechi Iheanacho and Demarai Gray are also pushing for starts but Matty James and Daniel Amartey remain absent with their respective Achilles and ankle problems.

Soon-to-depart title-winning duo Danny Simpson and Shinji Okazaki will hope for farewell appearances at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
