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.
