Predicted Chelsea lineup (3-4-3) vs Leicester City, Hazard and Willian start

Predicted Chelsea XI vs Leicester City

Chelsea are at the King Power Stadium for tomorrow's FA Cup quarter-final tie versus Leicester City. The Blues were ousted by Barcelona in the Champions League in midweek, and they now have the cup as the sole route to acquiring silverware this term.



Formation: 3-4-3

Lineup:

Antonio Conte suggested that he has yet to decide who will feature in goal against the Foxes, and it would not be a surprise, if Thibaut Courtois gets the nod for the Cup tie. The Belgian had a poor showing against the Catalan giants in midweek but he is still the club's undisputed number one.

In defence, we are likely to see familiar faces in the form of Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen at centre-back whilst Davide Zappacosta and Marcos Alonso may feature in the right and left wing-back positions respectively.

In order to cope with the Foxes' style of play, Conte could be tempted to go with Danny Drinkwater and N'Golo Kante in midfield with the pair accustomed to facing most of the Foxes players from their time at the King Power Stadium.

Further forward, we are anticipating Willian and Eden Hazard to start once more in the wider positions, though Alvaro Morata should earn his chance ahead of Olivier Giroud leading the line.
