Chelsea take on Leicester City this evening at Stamford Bridge with pride and final placing to play for, and both managers are expected to name strong line-ups.
Thomas Tuchel’s Blues had their status in next season’s Champions League confirmed earlier this week when Arsenal lost at Newcastle, but they still have a job to do to ensure they finish third ahead of London rivals Tottenham.
Chelsea come into this game two points clear of Spurs and with a far superior goal difference, but defeat tonight would mean third place was up for grabs on the final day.
Leicester meanwhile have put together back-to-back victories to close in on a top-half finish, and will climb above Wolves to eighth should they win tonight.
Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Mendy | Rüdiger, Silva, Chalobah | Alonso, Kanté, Jorginho (c), James | Pulisic, Lukaku, Ziyech
Substitutes from: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Kenedy, Sarr, Loftus-Cheek, Saúl, Barkley, Mount, Havertz
Leicester City starting XI:
Schmeichel (c) | Amartey, Evans, Fofana, Castagne, Thomas, Maddison, Mendy, Dewsbury-Hall, Iheanacho, Vardy
Substitutes from: Ward, Ricardo, Söyüncü, Choudhury, Albrighton, Pérez, Lookman, Barnes, Daka
