How Leicester City could line up against Chelsea

Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Leicester City could line up for Tuesday's Premier League clash with Chelsea.

Leicester City are unlikely to have key defender Jonny Evans available for their trip to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday as they take on Chelsea in a crucial top four clash in the Premier League.

The Northern Ireland man was withdrawn after only 34 minutes during Leicester's historic maiden FA Cup victory against the Blues on Saturday, with Marc Albrighton replacing him in a reshuffle of the Foxes' backline at Wembley.

Brendan Rodgers is likely to make the same change from the start should Evans fail to recover from his muscle injury as expected, with Timothy Castagne filling in at right centre-back as a result.

Kelechi Iheanacho failed to impress at Wembley and the striker's place could be under threat from James Maddison as Rodgers looks to gain more of a foothold in midfield against Chelsea's dominant possession game, particularly as a point would ensure qualifying for next season's Champions League remains in their own hands heading into the final day.

Otherwise, the 48-year-old's options to freshen things up after an emotionally exhausting FA Cup final victory are considerably limited, especially when compared to their forthcoming opponents.

Harvey Barnes and James Justin, who were both key performers for the Foxes during the opening months of the campaign, remain sidelined until next season due to serious knee injuries.

Leicester possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Soyuncu; Albrighton, Tielemans, Ndidi, Thomas; Perez, Maddison; Vardy
