Chelsea vs Leicester City

Connor Wickham and Jeffrey Schlupp have returned to training with Crystal Palace, who are only now missing long-term absentees Jason Puncheon, Scott Dann (both knee) and Bakary Sako (ankle).

Leicester City will again be without Kasper Schmeichel and Shinji Okazaki (both ankle), while Daniel Amartey (hamstring) is likely to play for the club's PL2 side before returning to first-team training.

Vicente Iborra (hamstring) and Matty James (Achilles) will miss the final matches of the season.

Did you know?

Crystal Palace are looking to secure back-to-back home Premier League wins for the first time since a run of three in April 2017.

Leicester City have lost only one of their last five Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace (W3 D1), though it was 3-0 in the reverse fixture of this season.

The Foxes have both scored and conceded in a PL-high 22 different PL matches this season. Only in 1994/95, with 25, have they done so in more matches in a single campaign.

Jamie Vardy has scored nine away PL goals this season and has four goals from his last six matches in London.
