Premier League

At the top of the table Chelsea are six points ahead of Manchester City

 Chelsea are six points ahead of the top of the Premier League with a 30-point win over Leicester City on Saturday evening. 


 Head League 


 Result: Leicester City 03 Chelsea 


 Date: November 20, 2021 

 

 Scene: King Power Stadium 


 The Blues passed without striker Romelu Lukaku while Kai Havertz continued to lead the attack as Ben Chilwell faced their front. 

 

 Chilwell got almost the ideal start to his comeback after playing the bar to Mason Mount within the first 10 minutes. 

 

 The Blues got their starting price when Chilwelll became the supplier when his corner tracked Antonio Rüdiger, who sent a header into the far corner in the 14th minute. 

 

 After Leicester's Ademola Lookman refused an offside goal, the Blues doubled their lead in the 28th moment thanks to a good shot from former Foxes star N'Golo Kante. 

 

 Aside from the forbidden goal, the Bredan Rodgers' protégés struggled to make a real attempt at a Blues goal in the first 45 minutes. 

 

 Rodgers reacted with a double substitution after the break when James Maddison and Kelechi Iheanacho swapped Harvey Barnes and Lookman for the next half. 

 

 Daniel Amartey turned down a goal for Leicester just after the hour but his incredible shot from Edouard Mendy was great. 

 

 Anyway, a substitute Chelsea managed to score the next goal when Christian Pulisic scored the 30th in the 71st minute after deflecting a cross from individually substituted Hakim Ziyech home. 

 

 Reece James thought he had the fourth goal with a skillful shot in the last five minutes, but the banner went up for an offside from Pulisic in development as the 30 mark was enough to give the best position for another Week to consolidate.


Mount and Chilwell interface up pleasantly before the last option crosses. There are two Chelsea bodies in the crate making it work and they impact.
