Live stream Chelsea v Leicester City Thursday 19th May 8pm BST
Chelsea will try to recover from their FA Cup final loss to Liverpool when they host Leicester on Thursday.
The Blues pushed Jurgen Klopp’s side to the limit at Wembley but for the second time this season they were beaten on penalties in a cup final by the Reds. Thomas Tuchel could not complain much about the performance of his team in the 120 minutes, but the fine margins went in favor of Liverpool.
Chelsea could still have work to do in the Premier League. At the time of writing, they are yet to secure their place in next season’s Champions League and a loss to Leicester would leave their fate unresolved to the last day. On the other hand, a win over Brendan Rodgers’ side would be enough to secure third place for Chelsea.
The Foxes beat Watford 5-1 at the weekend to record back-to-back Premier League wins for only the third time all season. It is no coincidence that Leicester’s form began to improve after a number of key players returned from injury and Rodgers will now be eyeing a top-half finish.
Leicester will complete their campaign against Southampton on Sunday but they will initially only be aiming for their second win at Stamford Bridge in the last 20 years.
Chelsea will be without Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi, both of whom will not play until next season. Timo Werner felt something in warm-up against Liverpool and is a doubt for Thursday’s encounter, but Kai Havertz is hoping to be involved in some way as he continues his comeback from a hamstring problem.
Leicester are unable to call on the services of Ryan Bertrand, Wilfred Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira and Hamza Choudhury. Papy Mendy could be made fit for a game in time, although the midfielder is more likely to be on the bench than in the starting XI.
kick-off is over 8 p.m. CET At Thursday May 19th. See below for international sending options.

Annoyingly, when you’re abroad for a round of Premier League games, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are based on your IP address (boo!). You’re blocked from watching it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To get around this, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), provided it complies with your broadcaster’s terms and conditions. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t figure out where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information that goes in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
