Brendan Rodgers only has Ricardo Pereira and Daniel Amartey as his injury concerns.

Fikayo Tomori and Marco van Ginkel still remain Frank Lampard’s long-term absentees, while Callum Hodson-Odoi is within a 50/50 chance to feature.

Match Facts

The Foxes will be looking for a victory at all cost especially having drawn five of their last six matches against Chelsea across all competitions.

The Blues have been impressive in this competition, winning seven of their last eight FA Cup matches. They have also kept a clean sheet in six of their last eight matches in this competition.

A plus for Rodgers’ troops is that they have won their last three FA Cup matches, though they will have it hard against a Chelsea side that is undefeated in 10 of their last 11 matches against them in all competitions.
