Eden Hazard Chelsea 2018-19
A penalty shoot-out win has handed the Blues a second final for the campaign - and they will look to finish domestically on a high against the Foxes

With their place in the final of the Europa League secured in dramatic fashion on Thursday, Chelsea will hope to lower their heart rate and sign off on the Premier League for another season with the win when they travel to Leicester City on Sunday.

The Blues secured a penalty shoot-out victory over Eintracht Frankfurt at Stamford Bridge to make it two showpiece finals in a campaign following their Carabao Cup adventure earlier this year.

Maurizio Sarri's side will be hoping that they fare better when they travel to Baku to face Arsenal in an all-English encounter later this month, but first they must best the Foxes to finish on a high domestically.

Brendan Rodgers' side came close to providing a vital swing in the title race against Manchester City on Monday and will be just as determined as their visitors to end a difficult season on and off the field with some joy.

Match Preview


Maurizio Sarri's hopes of securing silverware in his first season in charge of Chelsea are still alive after Thursday's Europa League victory - though the Blues made themselves work hard to reach Baku.

Eden Hazard's cool penalty at the end of a shoot-out at Stamford Bridge sealed the deal following a 2-2 aggregate draw between the hosts and Eintracht Frankfurt, to put the club in their second final of the season.

Sarri will hope to avoid a repeat of the heartbreak suffered at Wembley earlier this season when Manchester City bested them on spot kicks in the Carabao Cup final, in a game tinged by the controversy of goalkeeper Kepa refusing to be substituted.

The Italian has come in for criticism at points this season, with speculation humming he could be set for an early exit from London back to his native country, with home supporters booing him after he took off Ruben Loftus-Cheek late on against the German side.

But that does not change the fact he has handed the Blues another shot at a trophy this season, with Loftus-Cheek defending his manager and his methods .

"When I feel that I'm a liability to the team, then it's just the right decision to put some fresh legs on," he told reporters before adding that the final against Arsenal - an all-English affair - will be a hard encounter.

"It will be a tough one. It will just be amazing to be a part of a European final. It will be the biggest game of my career if I do play. But I look forward to it with all the excitement and fun that comes with it."

Chelsea have to finish their Premier League campaign first however, with the Blues heading north to Leicester City on the final day.

It has been a difficult year on and off the field for the Foxes but with Brendan Rodgers at the helm, they have been showing sparks of their talent once more.

They will however bid farewell to two men who have been key to their success in recent years, in defender Danny Simpson and striker Shinji Okazaki.

The pair will exit the club at the end of the current campaign, leaving behind their legacy of having helped the club to the 2015-16 Premier League title.

"They depart having left indelible marks in the memories of all Foxes fans thanks to their contribution to the greatest era in Leicester City's long history," read a statement released by the club.

Though Simpson has not played since January and Okazaki has only featured on a semi-regular basis, both could be expected to figure in what is effectively a dead rubber match for both teams, with City unable to reach a prospective Europa League berth and Chelsea safely secured in the top four.
