Chelsea vs Leicester preview Team news, Predictions and stats

Mateo Kovacic, Andreas Christensen could return; Leicester will be without defender Jonny Evans. Watch Chelsea vs Leicester live on Sky Sports Premier League on Tuesday Kick-off time is 8.15pm GMT. 

Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen could return when Chelsea host Leicester in Tuesday's Premier League match at Stamford Bridge tonight. 

Kovacic has been out of pace with a hamstring injury and failed in his bid to be fit for Saturday's FA Cup final, where Leicester defeated Chelsea 1 goal to nil.

Christensen has been in relation with a leg tendon issue but could strengthen the Chelsea s' choice in defence.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel says his team's destiny remains in their hands and they will approach their game against Leicester in the way they should. 

• Chelsea have not win in their last six Premier League meetings with Leicester (D4 L2), having won nine of their previous 11 against them in the competition (D1 L1).

• Leicester are looking to complete their first league double over Chelsea since the 2000-01 campaign.

• Between them, Manchester United (13), Chelsea (5) and Manchester City (5) have won 79 percent of the Premier League titles. Leicester have already won at both Manchester clubs this season and could be just the second team to win away at all three in a single Premier League season after Liverpool in 2008-09.
