Chelsea Football Club has defeated Leceister City 3-0 after returning from a one week international break.

Both teams came out with intensity, but Chelsea quickly established control against Leicester’s press and pushed them back.

Chilwell should’ve opened the scoring inside of five minutes, but he hit the crossbar after being released by Jorginho. Jorginho should’ve had a second assist when producing another killer ball a bit later, this time finding Kanté through the middle, but his flicked effort was saved by Schmeichel.

Fortunately, the Leicester goalkeeper could do nothing about Kanté’s brilliant solo effort at the half-hour mark, which doubled Chelsea lead after Rüdiger had opened the scoring with a header from a corner at the quarter-hour mark.

Leicester’s double-change at the half led to notable improvement from them, especially as the half wore on. But Chelsea were still dangerous as well, with Chilwell and Hudson-Odoi missing good chances, before Mendy made a spectacular save to maintain the clean sheet.

The home side’s resurgence was quickly ended afterwards as well, with Ziyech creating two great chances for Pulisic, the second of which was finished off to give Chelsea a 3-0 lead with a little over a quarter-hour left.
