Chelsea will be hoping to bounce back from their Champions League elimination when they travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City in Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final.

Leicester City vs Chelsea: FA Cup prediction and preview, how to watch on TV and online live streaming, start time, team news, line-ups

Chelsea have no time to dwell on Champions League exit as they travel to Leicester City looking to secure a place in the FA Cup semi-finals.

A valiant display in Barcelona counted for nothing as Lionel Messi downed Antonio Conte & Co. at Camp Nou in midweek.





Now it is to the King Power Stadium for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals, a stage familiar to the Blues but Leicester have not made the last four since 1982.

Claude Puel has almost an entirely fit squad to choose from after a midweek training camp in Marbella, with Daniel Amartey the only injury absentee.

The guests are expected to shuffle the squad to bring in the likes of Willy Caballero, Alvaro Morata, and Pedro, although David Luiz and Ross Barkley are still ruled out.
