Chelsea vs Leicester: Live stream, kick-off time, team news for HUGE Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge

CHELSEA will be hoping to distance themselves from their Wembley nightmare when they welcome Leicester to Stamford Bridge TONIGHT.

The Blues suffered their THIRD consecutive FA Cup final defeat last Sunday.

Mason Mount’s penalty miss ultimately led to Liverpool winning the FA Cup final
Jamie Vardy added another couple goals to his tally against Watford

And it would have felt like deja vu for Thomas Tuchel who witnessed his side lose out to Liverpool on penalties yet again.

However, the Chelsea head coach will now be more concerned on securing Champions League qualification for next season.

Which his men can do should they earn all three points over a Leicester side who recently hit five against Watford.

  • Chelsea entertain Leicester City on Thursday, May 19.
  • It is scheduled to kick off at 8pm UK time.
  • Stamford Bridge will be the location for this eye-catching clash which can hold around 41,000 fans.
