Chelsea v Leicester City live stream, Thursday 19 May, 8pm BST

Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from their FA Cup final defeat by Liverpool when they host Leicester on Thursday.

The Blues pushed Jurgen Klopp's side all the way at Wembley, but for the second time this season they were beaten by the Reds on penalties in a cup final. Thomas Tuchel could not have many complaints about how his team performed over the 120 minutes, but the fine margins went in Liverpool (opens in new tab)'s favour.

Chelsea (opens in new tab) may still have work to do in the Premier League. At the time of writing, they have still not wrapped up their place in next season's Champions League, and a defeat by Leicester (opens in new tab) would leave their fate unresolved heading into the final day. On the flip side, a victory over Brendan Rodgers' side would be enough to secure a third-place finish for Chelsea.

The Foxes thrashed Watford (opens in new tab) 5-1 at the weekend to register back-to-back wins in the Premier League for only the third time all season. It is no coincidence that Leicester's form has started to pick up now that some key players are back from injury, and Rodgers will now be eyeing a top-half finish. 

Leicester (opens in new tab) will conclude their campaign against Southampton on Sunday, but they will first be looking for only their second win at Stamford Bridge in the last 20 years.

Chelsea will have to make do without Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi, neither of whom will play again until next term. Timo Werner felt something in the warm-up against Liverpool and is a doubt for Thursday's encounter, but Kai Havertz is hoping to be involved in some capacity as he continues his comeback from a hamstring problem.

Leicester will be unable to call upon the services of Ryan Bertrand, Wilfred Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira and Hamza Choudhury. Papy Mendy could be passed fit in time to feature, though the midfielder is likelier to be on the bench than in the starting XI.

Kick-off is at 8pm BST on Thursday 19 May. See below for international broadcast options.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
