Loss to the Gunners saw the club denied the chance to move above the Foxes on the Premier League standings, meaning they go into the encounter with Chelsea in 4th position – one place below Leicester.

"If you have a goalkeeper for this competition, as we have had with Kepa, you don't change in the final.
"He is a part of the group, he brought us to the final so he deserves to play the final."
