STATS: The last time Chelsea and Leicester City met was on Sunday, the 18th of March 2012 in the Fa Cup at Stamford Bridge. Wow! It was a 5-2 defeat for the Foxes. England defender Gary Cahill put the Blues in the driving seat after 12 minutes before Salomon Kalou doubled the lead five minutes later to make it 2-0. Former Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres made it 3-0 in the 67th minute before Jamaican striker Jermaine Beckford pulled one back ten minutes later. Fernando Torres struck again in the 85th minute as he grabbed a brace before Ben Marshall's stunning long-range effort reduced the tally. Future Fenerbahce midfielder Raul Meireles added an icing on the cake with a stoppage time effort as the Blues dumped the visitors out of the competition.
Salomon Kalou could be on his way back to the Premier League, with both Liverpool and Arsenal battling for his signature. The former Chelsea striker has impressed since leaving Stamford Bridge for Lille and reports claim that both Liverpool and Arsenal are keen to do a deal. The Gunners were linked with a move for Kalou when he was with Chelsea but nothing materialised and the 28-year-old ended up returning to France instead. The striker was again linked to both clubs in January and speculation is already raging ahead of the transfer window re-opening later in the year. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to bolster his squad for next season's Champions League campaign and Kalou, who has experience at the highest level, would fit the bill perfectly. Arsene Wenger wants at least one more striker to put pressure on Olivier Giroud, and it looks as though it will be down to the player to decide where he will be playing his football next season.

chelsea 8-0 wigan Chelsea went into the final day of the 2009/10 Premier League season knowing a victory would secure their first league title win since 2006. Premiership rivals Manchester Utd emphatically beat Stoke 4-0 on the last day, but this couldn't be matched by the Blues 8-0 demolition of Wigan at Stamford Bridge. Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba both found the net twice, while Ashley Cole, Salomon Kalou and Frank Lampard also found the net. In addition to earning a shiny trophy, Carlo Ancelotti's men became the first team in English history to score seven or more goals on four occasions in a league season. They also became the first Premier League side to score a hundred or more goals in a season after putting away a club-record 103 goals in the campaign. Wigan finished the season with the league's worst goals difference (minus-42). This was the second time in 2009/10 that they had been beaten by an eight-goal deficit in London.
Chelsea have been through quite a lot in that 200 days. Take a look at the squad list for that final in Munich and cross out the likes of Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou, Jose Bosingwa, Michael Essien and even manager Roberto Di Matteo. You can cross out any hopes they have of defending the title in a few hours' time as well - unless they beat Nordsjaelland at Stamford Bridge, and Shakhtar Donetsk beat Juventus in Ukraine.
