PremierLeague-News.Com - Thomas Tuchel's side will be out for revenge when they welcome Leicester City to Stamford Bridge in a clash that could have huge repercussions on the race for top four
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Chelsea will have the chance to dish out revenge on Leicester City just over 72 hours after the Foxes toppled them in the FA Cup final to rob the Blues of their ninth FA Cup victory. A lone Youri Tielemans wonder-strike was enough to separate the two sides, though Tuchel had nothing negative to say about his side after more Wembley heartache. The German boss said: "Of course, we are disappointed but we are not angry, it's not on our boys. Today we are simply unlucky. We have never hidden the fact that you need luck in this game to be able to win on this level. All the time you need momentum, little details and decision making, referee and sometimes with a shot like today." His attention will now divert to a huge Premier League clash against the same opponents on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge, where a win would see Chelsea all but confirm their Champions League qualification for next year, potentially at the expense of Brendan Rodgers side, who meet Tottenham on the last day of the season.
