Leicester out to delay Chelsea celebrations

29 April 2015, 07:45

Cape Town - Leicester City will be targeting a fifth straight victory when they welcome champions-elect Chelsea to King Power Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Foxes are on the verge of performing a memorable escape, as a run of four consecutive wins has lifted them one point clear of the dreaded drop zone with five games left to play.

The Blues, meanwhile, head into the midweek clash with the knowledge that another win would all but secure their status as Premier League champions.

Jose Mourinho's men played out a goalless draw with fellow high-flyers Arsenal at the weekend, which saw them move 10 points clear at the Premier League summit.

On the team news front, Leicester boss Nigel Pearson is sweating on the fitness of a number of key first-team players.

David Nugent and Jeff Schlupp (both calf) face late fitness tests, while Jamie Vardy is a doubt after requiring a pain-killing injection in his foot to take part in Saturday's 1-0 win at Burnley.

Mourinho has just two injury doubts for the match, following the confirmation that striker Loic Remy (calf) will miss out.

Striker Diego Costa (hamstring) will undergo a late test after missing the club's last four fixtures, while midfielder Oscar is expected to feature despite suffering a blow to his head during the Gunners fixture.
