As part of one of the matches of the 37th round of the English championship, the players of Chelsea and Leicester will come face to face. Will the foxes be able to defeat their opponent in this match?
In late April and early May, the Londoners were able to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, defeating Real Madrid on aggregate. And between the European Cup meetings, the Blues lost their nose to Fulham (2: 0). After that, Tuchel's team won away against Manchester City (2: 1), and unexpectedly lost to Arsenal (0:1). In the FA Cup match, the Blues lost to Leicester with a score of 0:1. After 36 rounds of the Premier League, the "pensioners" with 64 points are in 4th place.
In April, the Foxes defeated West Brom 3-0 in the Premier League, and also defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 at home. After that, Rodgers ' team shared points with Southampton on the road, and also lost heavily to Newcastle on their own field, scoring two prestige goals in the last 10 minutes of the game. After 36 rounds of the English championship, Leicester are in the 3rd position with 66 points.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Barnes (knee), Justin (knee), Evans (muscle injury) - all Leicester.
Statistics and figures:
