Leicester City vs Chelsea Highlights
Chelsea snapped an eight-game winless away streak in the Premier League by beating Leicester City 3-1 at the King Power Stadium, inflicting the Foxes with their fifth consecutive loss across all competitions.
The Blues aimed for their third consecutive win, opening the score with a volley from Ben Chilwell in the 11th minute. João Félix came close to doubling their lead but hit the post, and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s deflected shot for the Foxes hit the crossbar. Kepa Arrizabalaga remained rooted to the spot.
After Graham Potter’s team saw João Félix’s goal ruled offside by VAR, Leicester quickly responded as Patson Daka scored from the edge of the box, taking advantage of an error from Félix. However, Chelsea restored their lead before half-time when Kai Havertz flicked a delicate lob over Danny Ward from a clever Enzo Fernández pass.
After the break, Leicester City survived a goalline clearance, and Brendan Rodgers made a triple change in search of a second equaliser. Mykhailo Mudryk was denied his first Premier League goal due to another offside decision, but he later set up Mateo Kovačić’s volley with a cushioned header to secure a 2-0 victory for Graham Potter’s side.
Wout Faes was shown a second yellow card in the closing stages of the game, reducing Leicester to ten men, as Chelsea secured a deserved away win that put them just five points away from the top-five.
