Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Chelsea will be looking to gain revenge on Leicester City when Thomas Tuchel's side welcome the FA Cup holders to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

Youri Tielemans scored the only goal of Saturday's FA Cup final as Leicester recorded a 1-0 win over Chelsea to win the competition.

The pair will now switch their attention back to the Premier League, and Tuesday's contest is vital for both sides as Leicester currently sit third in the table, two points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea, with both teams battling to claim Champions League spots for 2021-22.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the league clash with Brendan Rodgers's side.
