Chelsea welcome Leicester City as heat intensifies for a top 4 finish
Chelsea are back in action against same side they recently lost the FA Cup to on Saturday.
The disappointing loss could now serve as a make weight for Blues to bounce back to winning ways as it was their first consecutive defeats under Tuchel after losing to Arsenal prior to the game.
Thomas Tuchel during the FA Cup clash decided to have Kepa Arrizabalaga in the goal post while Mendy rests.
This although didn’t turn out well as the Spaniard failed to stop out a Tielemans’ outside 18 strike from rocketing into the net.
It’s understandable that Mendy would retain his spot for the game today while Mateo Kovacic returns to the center in quest to boost the tiring side.
Chelsea are clearly suffering fatigue after a long spell of games since January but Tuchel believes they can still achieve great things this season.
