Chelsea travel to The King Power Stadium to face Leicester City in the English Premier League on Sunday, with the side’s top four spot and a place in the UEFA Europa League final confirmed.

As the final day of the league season comes to a close, the pressure will be somewhat off Maurizio Sarri’s side but they will still look to finish third in-front of Tottenham Hotspur.

Despite a 0-0 stalemate the last time the two sides met, it was an eventful event which saw The Foxes defender Ben Chilwell sent-off.

Ahead of the curtain closer, we have looked at player ratings provided by WhoScored.com and have come up with our own Chelsea and Leicester City combined team.

Formation: 4-4-1-1

Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea) 6.63

Kepa Arrizabalaga’s heroics between the sticks in the UEFA Europa League semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt has capped-off a terrific first season for the Spaniard.

The 24-year-old has started all but one of The Blues’ 37 league games and has earned 14 clean sheets in the process. He is third in the rankings only behind Manchester City’s Ederson and Liverpool’s Alisson.

Right-back: Ricardo Pereira (Leicester City) 7.33

Arguably Leicester City’s most impressive player this season, Ricardo Pereira’s first campaign at the club has seen him win both The Foxes Player and Players’ Player of the Season.

The Portuguese defender has made more interceptions this season (54) than Cesar Azpilicueta (42) despite having played three less games.

Centre-back: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea) 7.01

Despite critics towards the club from the fans this season, Azpilicueta has remained a consistent figure as he has helped his side to a UEFA Champions League place a spot in the UEFA Europa League final.

Captain consistent has made blocked more shots this campaign (15) than Foxes leader Wes Morgan (10).

Centre-back: Harry Maguire (Leicester City) 7.00

After his performances in the FIFA World Cup for England, Harry Maguire has continued that form throughout the league season and has garnered interest from other clubs in England.

The no-nonsense centre-back has been dribbled past less times per game (0.2) than Chelsea’s equivalent Antonio Rudiger (0.4). 

Left-back: Ben Chilwell (Leicester City) 7.02

Despite the Foxes being ninth in the league table, there has been no shortage of star performers, another one of them being Chilwell, whose performances have interested the likes of Manchester City.

Chilwell has more average clearances per game to his name (3.6) than the experienced Marcos Alonso (2.7).

Right-midfielder: Willian (Chelsea) 7.07

With a transfer ban on the horizon, Willian will prove to be vital, not just towards the end of this season, but next season as well despite his downturn in play time.

When Willian has played, he has been impressive as he has more key passes in total (76) than Harvey Barnes (16) and Marc Albrighton (28) combined.

Centre-midfielder: David Luiz (Chelsea) 7.08

Much has been said about the future of David Luiz. With one year left on his current deal, the Brazilian was rewarded for his efforts this season with a new one-year deal.

The versatile Brazilian has accumulated more passes in total (2561) than midfielder Wilfired Ndidi (1936).

Centre-midfielder: Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City) 7.23

Ndidi has been an integral part of The Foxes season under Brendan Rogers. His consistent figure in the team was proved with his masterclass against City last time out.

N’Golo Kante is regarded as one of the best defensive minded midfielders in the world, but has less interceptions per game (1.2) than Ndidi (2.1).

Left-midfielder: Marcos Alonso (Chelsea) 7.17

As Emerson played the previous game in Europe, it’s likely that Alonso will step in for the final league game as he aims to prove his worth to Sarri.

Although the Spaniard is a left-back, Alonso has attempted an incredible amount of shots on goal (44), which is more than half than his counterpart Chilwell (21).

Attacking-midfielder: James Maddison (Leicester City) 7.21

James Maddison has had a superb first season with the Foxes. The transition from Sky Bet Championship to the English Premier League is often difficult, especially for a young player, but Maddison has made it look seamless.

Maddison has more assists this season (7) than Kante (4) and Mateo Kovacic (2) combined.

Striker: Eden Hazard (Chelsea) 7.84

This may well be Eden Hazard’s last ever English Premier League game. Having nailed down his place in the Chelsea history books and gained legendary status, the Belgian superstar will want to bow out with a bang.

Having made history at the club’s end of season awards, he has capped-off an astonishing season, as well as providing more assists and goals combined than any other player in the league (31).
