Leicester City’s hopes of making a Champions League place took a hit after a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

Chelsea are now 3rd in the league and a point above the Foxes as we head into the final game of the season.

A win for Liverpool tonight will take them to 4th and they have a slightly better goal difference than Leicester City.

The top four battle will go down to the last day, and Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has warned that no one has qualified yet, as he insists that the three clubs still have very tough matches to play.

“I’ve said all along we’ll see where we’re at after 38 games,” Rodgers said.

“In the last week, we’ve beaten the Europa League finalists and Champions League finalists, and won the FA Cup.

“Now we’ll recover and get ready for the the weekend. All we can do is get three points there and see where it takes us.

“The maturity in the team and how they’ve fought has allowed us to get into this position.

“We know we can win big games, let’s see if we can do it again. It will be great because we’ve got supporters in. You could sense the difference fans made tonight, so that will make a big difference for us.

“For us, it’s about ourselves, we could never control what Liverpool or Chelsea has done. If we arrive in the top four, it will be a monumental effort.

“Every team has a hard game, Liverpool have Burnley and Crystal Palace who are tough teams to play against, Chelsea have to go to Villa, we play Tottenham. We can only focus on ourselves.”
