Chelsea have a chance to exact some measure of revenge on Leicester City for their victory in Saturday’s FA Cup final when we take on the Foxes again today, at Stamford Bridge in “second final”.
There will be no trophy awarded at the end of this one, but the winner will almost certainly get one of the two remaining top-four spots, which is a prize we frown upon in name yet were willing to take to the streets to protest in favor of not so long ago.
Having missed the opportunity to move back above Leicester into third place in the table after losing 1-0 to Arsenal on Wednesday, the subsequent FA Cup final defeat to Leicester on Saturday has comfortably made this Thomas Tuchel‘s most testing week since taking charge of Chelsea in January.
The German has undeniably made a superb impact since replacing Frank Lampard as manager, winning 17 of his 27 matches in all competitions while conceding only 13 goals in the process, but he needs to ensure that his side get over the line in terms of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Should they miss out on a top four spot, the Blues would have a second bite at the cherry against Manchester City in the final of the Champions League at the end of May, but there are far from any guarantees against a side of Pep Guardiola‘s calibre.
Chelsea’s performances in both of their recent defeats were not particularly bad by any means, with the Blues heavily dominating both the shot and possession counts, but Tuchel’s side lacked a touch of creativity and as a result could not find a meaningful response to a major error from Jorginho and a wondrous strike from Youri Tielemans respectively.
Tuchel will be demanding a major response from his players against the Foxes on Tuesday, then, with only a win ensuring that a top four position would remain in their own hands heading into the final day’s trip to Aston Villa, with the ominous rise of Liverpool in recent weeks creating the only remaining major sub-plot of the Premier League this season.
