Leicester City Vs Chelsea: (Match Preview, Kick-off, FA Cup Matches, Team News And More)
Chelsea could rest some first-team players for today’s FA Cup match against Leicester City at the King Power stadium, MySportDab reports.
The Blues head into the FA Cup quarter-final after a crucial win against former Premier League Champions Manchester City on Thursday.
The 2-1 win, thanks to goals from Christian Pulisic and Willian, gave Liverpool their first Premier League title since 1990.
Chelsea Coach Frank Lampard is more focused on securing Champions League football but the FA Cup is not a bad trophy to win this season.
The 42-year-old will most likely pick a strong team against the Foxes, while also protecting his key players for the Premier League matches.
Chelsea are likely to make at least four changes or more to their Starting XI and give over players more playing time.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, Fikayo Tomori, and Marco van Ginkel all missed Thursday’s game as they continue recovery from injury.
2nd choice Willy Caballero will hope to start ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal, having played most Cup matches at Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta could drop out and be replaced by Reece James while Emerson Palmieri could start on the other flank.
However, Tammy Abraham is likely to get his first start since the return of football ahead of Olivier Giroud in attack.
