FT: Chelsea 2-1 Leicester

A brilliant result for Chelsea, especially when you consider that early red card for Gallagher.

Sterling with his first couple of Premier League goals for the club and although Barnes then halved the deficit, the Blues just about do enough to hold on.

87 mins: LEICESTER HIT THE BAR!

This is madness, they’ve had a ridiculous amount of chances. This time it’s Perez in on goal, fired over Mendy and it cannons back off the bar, into the six-yard box and a Chelsea head is there to clear.

78 mins: A rare attack for Chelsea, Havertz briefly looks to be clean through but it’s a terrible touch. Anything a bit better and he would have got a shot away.

Leicester go up the other end, superb defending from Thiago Silva. So, so good.
