Chelsea cruising against Leicester City

Premier League leaders Chelsea are currently locked in action with Leicester City in the Saturday lunchtime kick off in the Premier League.

In a repeat of the FA Cup final, albeit at the King Power Stadium as opposed to Wembley Stadium, Chelsea are having a much better time of it than they did six months ago.

Thomas Tuchel’s side opened the scoring with a brilliant header from Antonio Rudiger, nodding home from a Ben Chilwell corner in a manner not dissimilar to Gabriel when Arsenal clashed with Leicester.

Then, to rub salt into the wounds of Foxes fans, former star N’Golo Kante doubled Chelsea’s lead with a brilliant strike from outside the box.

The Foxes, for their part, had the ball in the net courtesy of Ademola Lookman, but the goal was correctly ruled out for offside. Aside from that, however, it has been largely one-way traffic towards Kaspar Schmiechel’s goal.

One Blues star conspicuously absent from the encounter is summer signing Romelu Lukaku, who has been recovering from an injury he picked up in the Champions League against Malmo.

The Belgian has been watching the game, and was quick to take to Twitter to praise N’Golo Kante for his strike, simply tweeting “NG. Thank you”.

Should his teammates prevail, Lukaku will return to Premier League action with his side still at the top of the table.
