Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers insists Chelsea will remain successful under the club's new ownership.

Chelsea were unable to add the FA Cup to their Super Cup and Club World Cup trophies at the weekend.

And the season looks set to end with the future of the club still not confirmed - as Todd Boehly's £4.25billion takeover is yet to go through.

Rodgers, though, is backing counterpart Thomas Tuchel to continue to succeed in the dugout next season.

The Leicester boss added: "What I do know is they've got an outstanding manager who has done a fantastic job since he's been there.

"They've got a group of really good players, top, top talents.

"I saw them lose in the FA Cup final, but they have so much courage because they keep getting there.

"And you'd rather be in there and losing finals – of course, you want to win – but you'd rather be arriving there knowing it's going to drop your way and you're going to win in the future.

"So they are a top team, with top players, and they are in the Champions League next season, and I expect them to be up there challenging again next season."
