Pulisic starts, Jorginho axed – the Chelsea team Thomas Tuchel should pick vs Leicester

Chelsea and Leicester City will lock horns once again on Tuesday night when they do battle at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League with top four spots the target for both.

The Foxes, who beat the Blues in the FA Cup final at the weekend, head to the capital for a second time in four days in a very jovial mood having won 1-0 at Wembley, Youri Tielemans capping a superb display with a fantastic winner.

Reece James should keep his place but he will likely go back to right wing back, with either Cesar Azpilicueta or…
