Chelsea vs Leicester City Match Preview and Team News
Chelsea suffered a shock loss to Arsenal on Wednesday and will be keen on rising from it when they take on Leicester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday. The two sides fighting to keep their top four places will put to the side thoughts about the league to face off at Wembley. Chelsea will be returning to Wembley for the final, hoping to do better than in their loss to Arsenal last season. They had seven changes in the 1-0 defeat to Arsenal and lacked their usual cutting edge; they’ll definitely be a different side in the Saturday game. Chelsea goes to the FA Cup final with one loss and five clean sheets in their last eight matches across all competitions. With the return of first-choice players for the game, expect Chelsea to be a better defensive side and also incisive in attack. Christian Pulisic plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. A great reinforcement, he was a favorite of RB Leipzig fans.
Leicester City lost to Chelsea in the FA Cup in last season’s quarter-finals. This is their moment to avenge in a big way, and they warmed up nicely for it with a win over Manchester United, keeping their top-four hopes alive. They can afford to focus on the final, knowing they won’t drop from third this weekend. The win over United was Leicester’s first in the last three matches, but they have a scoring run that should worry the Blues. The Foxes have averaged two goals per game in the previous five, scoring ten goals, though they have no clean sheet in their last four matches. Four of the last five games have produced over 2.5 goals, and after facing three Premier League opponents in the previous three FA Cup rounds, Leicester will feel well prepared for this game. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Kelechi Iheanacho enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
