Leicester will be looking to make it three spins on the bounce when they travel to the capital to take on Chelsea in the Premier League on Thursday evening.

Back-to-back victories have brought something close to a feel-good factor back to the King Power Stadium in recent weeks following the Foxes’ disappointing Europa Conference League semi-final exit at the hands of Roma.

Here is the starting XI Brendan Rodgers should go with ahead of his side’s last away game of the season…

Leicester (3-4-2-1)
Kasper Schmeichel (GK) – Danny Ward was handed a very rare start last time out but Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that the skipper will return at Stamford Bridge.

Wesley Fofana (CB) – Fofana has been superb since his return from injury. A player Chelsea should try and sign if they have any sense this summer.

Jonny Evans (CB) – Starting to look his age, but a good organiser and calming influence in the backline.

James Justin (CB) – Daniel Amartey is an option for this spot, but Rodgers will likely want to keep putting minutes into Justin’s leg.

Marc Albrighton (RWB) – Albrighton has scarcely featured in recent weeks and will provide some energy down the right.

Youri Tielemans (CM) – Leicester seem to be preparing for life without Tielemans. He will leave a significant void at the club.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (CM) – Fresh from securing the Players’ Player of the Season award, Dewsbury-Hall will be eager to keep up his good form as he targets an unlikely England call up.

Timothy Castagne (LWB) – His versatility means he will not miss a beat despite being moved onto his ‘weaker’ side.

James Maddison (RF) – Recently crowned Leicester’s Player of the Season, his numbers have gone under the radar somewhat this campaign.

Jamie Vardy (ST) – Back from injury and still Leicester’s talisman. Just how long can he keep going?

Harvey Barnes (LF) – Has not quite pushed on as Leicester fans might have hoped this term. Still, he’s seemed to hit his stride again recently.
