Chelsea set to take on Leicester City for the final stage of the FA Cup campaign

Both sides will go head to head for the final of the FA Cup as Tuchel eyes his first Chelsea trophy.

Chelsea saw off Manchester City to advance into the current stage while Leicester City lived through Southampton in a 1-0 hard fought victory to get to the finals.

The last encounter by both sides ended up in favor of the Foxes back in January when Chelsea was still under the lead of Frank Lampard who was later sacked for a disastrous spell.

Tuchel having done an impressive job since inheriting the position is set to finish off the season in style with his favorite midfielder, Mateo Kovacic back in training.

The Croatian missed out three games out of injury but is now back in training.

Kepa was in between the sticks for the West Londoners as Chelsea lost disappointedly to Arsenal on Wednesday but Tuchel insisted the match was a warm up for the Spaniard who will be getting a big chance against Leicester today.

Christian Pulisic is also likely to start after confirming to ESPN he is fully fit for the clash despite having appeared to be limping in some way after the Wednesday game.
