Leicester vs Chelsea: Team news
Top scorer Jamie Vardy is set to return to the Foxes’ starting line-up.
After sustaining a glute injury in last week’s 4-1 home win over West Ham, Vardy started on the bench for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg defeat at Aston Villa, in which he came on as a 56th-minute sub. He has since trained with no ill effects.
Brendan Rodgers goes into the game, however, without Nampalys Mendy (knee) and Wes Morgan (illness).
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s leading scorer Tammy Abraham could yet shake off his ankle injury in time to lead Chelsea’s line.
The 22-year-old hobbled off the pitch at the end of the 2-2 Premier League draw with Arsenal ten days ago, and missed the FA Cup victory at Hull.
But the former Aston Villa loanee trained on Friday and will be given a late fitness on Saturday morning.
Abraham has scored 13 Premier League goals this season

- This will be Chelseas 12th consecutive Premier League match day starting the day fourth, the longest run in that position since Spurs started 23 consecutive games fourth between December 2005 and May 2006, ending the season fifth after losing 2-1 to West Ham on the final day.
- Leicesters Brendan Rodgers has faced Chelsea 13 times in his managerial career; no side has he faced more. However, he is winless in all 13 of his meetings with the Blues (D7 L6), only losing more often against Manchester United (9).
