Chelsea travel to Leicester for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Both sides locked in a battle to qualify for the Champions League next season, with just a point between the Foxes in third and Blues in fourth.

But attention turns to the cup and a chance for both teams to secure silverware this season.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

Brendan Rodgers’s side are struggling for fluidity, while Frank Lampard’s side have found form after the Premier League restart, notably downing Manchester City to hand Liverpool the title on Thursday.

Here is how you can watch the game on television or on a live stream.

The match will begin at 4pm on Sunday 28 June at the King Power Stadium.

You can watch the game live on BT Sport 1 with coverage beginning at 3:30pm.

Dennis Praet is available but Rodgers will be without Daniel Amartey (ankle) and Ricardo Pereira (Achilles).

Fikayo Tomori is still out, while Callum Hudson-Odoi is also likely to be unavailable again, despite being back in training. Jorginho is available after suspension, but Lampard opted for Gilmour as a substitute against Manchester City, which suggests the young Scot could deputise in midfield.

Leicester XI: Schmeichel; Justin, Evans, Morgan, Fuchs; Perez, Choudhury, Tielemans, Praet, Barnes; Iheanacho

Chelsea XI: Kepa; James, Christensen, Zouma, Alonso; Kovacic, Gilmour, Mount; Pedro, Abraham, Pulisic

Leicester: 7/4

Draw: 12/5

Chelsea: 6/4

Brendan Rodgers’ side are due a performance and this quarter-final against Chelsea presents a wonderful opportunity for the Foxes to justify their place in third and prove their quality against an in-form side. The Blues will likely rotate with Frank Lampard possessing numerous options as he assesses his squad before the summer transfer window and hands a rest to some players after Thursday’s colossal effort to outplay and defeat Man City. There should be goals in this game with both sides possessing attacking talent, though the Blues, led by Andreas Christensen, are starting to find some consistency at the back after proving to be vulnerable throughout most of the campaign. We’ll go for a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes and the greater depth for the visitors to take them through after extra-time 2-1.
