The International break at the World cup qualifiers is over for the year. With that, the Premier League returns to action on Saturday as the race for the title continues with Chelsea caught in the middle of it at least presently.
The blues are welcomed back to English football with a visit to a very tough King Power Stadium at Lunch time on Saturday. Having dropped two points in their last fixture against Burnley before the break, they would be looking to make up for that slip by garnering all three points at Leicester to extend their safety at the top of the table from threatening sides like, Manchester City and Liverpool majorly.
Speaking at a pre-match press conference yesterday, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, cited the stern quality and ruggedness of the side they are to face today, saying that, while the game would be a tough one, his team however, are prepared and are up for it.
Truly he wasn't bluffing in the slightest. Having beaten Manchester United in their last big fixture, one would have bet on the Foxes to cause much trouble to Tuchel's side and dominate a fair share of the game, but the total reverse was the case.
A fine performance from the blues outclassed and completely embarrassed Brendan Rodgers Leicester. Rudiger's opening goal at the 13th minute and Kante's solo stunner at the 27th minute, highlighted just how good of a side the blues were in the first-half and how poor Leicester were with no single shot on the Chelsea goal.
It would like another clean sheet for the blues as they maintained their 2-0 lead deep into second-half. Leicester City picked up quite the pace in the final 30 minutes, but Chelsea would not budge. Pulisic came on from the bench to make it 3-0 at the 71st minute, his first goal this season and the rest they say was history.
