Confirmed: Chelsea team and injury news vs Leicester City on Thursday

Chelsea are back in Premier League action again this week, playing against Leicester City on Thursday night.

The Blues have just two games left of their season, and they have already secured Champions league football for next season with a top four finish regardless of what happens in these last two games.

Chelsea want to reopen talks to sign Ousmane Dembele this summer.

Leicester present a tough task even though they don’t have anything to play for either, and Brendan Rodgers will be looking to take something from Stamford Bridge tomorrow night.

Thomas Tuchel confirmed his injury and team news today in the pre-match press conference at Cobham.

There was mainly bad news really with Timo Werner out, no Ben Chilwell of course, no Callum Hudson-Odoi, and doubts/late fitness tests for both Kai Havertz and Mateo Kovacic.

It will be interesting to see if any fringe or academy players get the nod in these next couple of matches having already secured UCL football.
