Chelsea beat Leicester without any problems. At King Power Stadium, the score was 3-0 for the guests from London.
“The Blues” quickly attacked. In the 4th minute, Ben Chilwell moved into position, took the ball in the penalty area, but his shot landed on the crossbar.
Thomas Tuchel’s players took the lead in the 14th minute. Antonio Rudiger won the air duel after a throw-in from the corner kick and headed the ball into the goal. The effectiveness of defenders is already a hallmark of Chelsea this season.
Soon after, fans at the King Power Stadium celebrated for a few seconds bringing about the draw. The euphoria did not last long, as Ademola Lookman, who directed the ball into the net, found himself in an offside position. It did not escape the attention of the judges who canceled his hit.
However, it was Chelsea who delivered the second blow. In the 28th minute N’Golo Kante ran several meters with the ball and with his left foot increased the Londoners’ lead.
After the break, Chilwell found himself under the goal of his opponents again. Kasper Schmeichel struggled to parry the ball to a corner after a former Leicester player’s shot.
The Dane did not manage to stop his opponents in the 71st minute. Hakim Ziyech assisted Christian Pulisic, who scored 3-0 from close range. It was an action of two substitutes. At the end of the game, Reece James hit the net, but the goal was not awarded due to an offside.
Chelsea won 3-0, thanks to which they are still placed in the Premier League leader’s seat. The lead over Manchester City and West Ham is six points, with “Citizens” and “Hammers” yet to play this matchday.
