The pain of the FA Cup final defeat to Leicester City may not be forgotten in a hurry, but there’s still a lot to play for this season.
Chelsea play Leicester City again on Tuesday night, in a Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge, and this time around, anything short of a win could be disastrous for the Blues.
Chelsea are two points behind Leicester City, and a win will take the Blues up to third as the fight for top four reaches fever pitch, and will definitely go on to the last day.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he’s happy to have fans back for this game and admitted that it will help the momentum at Stamford Bridge.
Tuchel said ahead of the game: “We had some matches where we struggled a bit with momentum and I had the feeling that their support could help.
“This could be crucial to our team so having the fans back is fantastic. I hope they come in the right moment to help us secure this last win at Stamford Bridge this season.
“Normally it’s an advantage and to have 8,000 fans feels amazing that it’s possible. It’s absolutely a step in the right direction and we hope that it’s the extra percentage of support that helps us to win tomorrow.”
