Wednesday's match will come a week after the Blues were last in action with their 1-0 win against Norwich City - and five days before their next match away to Spurs on Monday.

"Also the statistics show in the game against Norwich, we used more intensity compared to the game against Liverpool. "From this point of view, we are really good. It can be a small advantage that Leicester played on Sunday, we are fresh and we can play the game with a lot of intensity."
