Chelsea vs Leicester in the Premier League

After defeating Chelsea in the FA Cup Final, Leicester succumbed to the Blues in the Premier League fight for the top 4 position. The Blues defeated the Foxes 2-1 in a match that had it all in the 2nd half.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel made 3 changes to the side that lost 1-0 in the finals. He brought in Mendy, Chilwell, and Pulisic in the starting 11 this time.

Brendan Rodgers made 2 changes as he brought Albrighton to replace injured Evans and Maddison started ahead of Iheanacho.

Leicester can have no complaints – they didn’t start playing until Kelechi Iheanacho came off the pitch, and by that stage, they were lucky to be only 2-0 down.

Chelsea was superb with and without the ball: they outclassed Leicester and also bullied them, with Mason Mount and Antonio Rudiger the outstanding players.
