How Chelsea could line up against Leicester City

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been handed two fresh injury concerns ahead of Thursday's Premier League clash with Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.

Kai Havertz and Timo Werner were both last-minute absentees from the FA Cup final defeat to Liverpool, joining Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi on the sidelines, but the former has a slight chance of being involved.

Andreas Christensen also reportedly refused to play at Wembley and disappeared from the team hotel, leading to speculation that he could have played his final game for the club ahead of a summer departure.

Tuchel will need to assess the fitness of the rest of his crop after more than 120 minutes of FA Cup action, with Thiago Silva in particular likely to be rested as Cesar Azpilicueta returns to the fold.

Trevoh Chalobah and Antonio Rudiger should be fine to go again, while Reece James and Marcos Alonso continue out wide, unless Tuchel considers a recall for Malang Sarr.

N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic - somewhat surprisingly - were both passed fit for the final, and the Frenchman could now displace his counterpart as Tuchel takes care over his fresh ankle problem.

Jorginho should hold off competition from Ruben Loftus-Cheek to continue in the middle, while Hakim Ziyech's fresh legs could earn him a start in the final third over Christian Pulisic.

Mason Mount is unlikely to be considered for the drop despite his fatal penalty miss in the shootout against Liverpool, while Romelu Lukaku aims to score in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since September 2017.

Chelsea possible starting lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Rudiger; James, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Ziyech, Mount; Lukaku body check tags ::
