Chelsea vs Leicester City prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out tonight?

Chelsea take on Leicester City this evening at Stamford Bridge with pride and final placing to play for.

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.

Here is everything you need to know.

When does Chelsea vs Leicester start?

Chelsea vs Leicester kicks off at 8pm GMT tonight, Thursday 19 May.

How to watch Chelsea vs Leicester on TV and online

The match will not be broadcast live in the UK, with BT Sport instead choosing to show Aston Villa vs Burnley.

Leicester are set to be without Ricardo Pereira and long-term absentee Wilfried Ndidi.

Predicted line-ups

Chelsea: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Rudiger, James, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso, Mount, Lukaku, Pulisic.

Leicester: Schmeichel, Castagne, Evans, Fofana, Justin, Tielemans, Mendy, Maddison, Barnes, Dewsbury-Hall, Vardy.


This could be a well-fought game given Leicester’s recent improvement, coupled with Chelsea’s deflation at losing the FA Cup final on penalties. Chelsea 2-2 Leicester.
