Fans single out Chelsea player for praise following ‘clever’ play during Leicester clash

Leicester vs Chelsea

Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off would see Leicester and Chelsea face off.

The tie was very much dominated early on by Chelsea, which was not too surprising given Thomas Tuchel’s side began the day top of the Premier League whilst Leicester were languishing down in 12th.

And, it took Chelsea just 14 minutes to open the scoring on Sunday. Ben Chilwell took a corner, which he put straight onto the head of Antonio Rudiger who glanced his effort past Kasper Schmeichel.

Ademola Lookman then appeared to have equalised for Leicester after 24 minutes, but the winger was offside.

Then, just as it looked as though Leicester were regaining a foothold in the game, N’Golo Kante burst forward before smashing a shot in from the edge of the Leicester box.

Fans praise Chalobah

Though a number of Chelsea stars have looked bright during the game so far, there is one player in particular who has caught the eye of fans online.

That player is Trevoh Chalobah. The central defender has shone on several occasions this term since being handed a chance by Tuchel, and he was in fine form again this weekend.

One especially impressive bit of play from Chalobah came during Leicester’s aforementioned offside goal, which saw Chalobah step up to ensure Lookman was offside.

After doing this, the defender has received a fair bit of praise online for his clever play, with just some of the reaction below:
