Game Report

Highlights

Wilfred Ndidi made amends for an early error as Leicester claimed a well deserved point at Chelsea. Ndidi gifted the opening goal to Mason Mount but drew the Foxes level with a second half header.

Detail

Very fast start from Chelsea as Olivier Giroud's excellent link-up play created a slew of early chances. The French striker teed up Pedro who fired into the side-netting whilst Mount and Christian Pulisic were denied by a double-save from Kasper Schmeichel.

The Blues deservedly went in front but it was a gift of a goal. Ndidi was dispossessed cheaply on the edge of his own box by Mount who tucked away his first goal for the club.

Frank Lampard's side slowed after that aggressive opening and the visitors grew into the game in the second half. Ndidi atoned for his earlier mistake with a thumping header from James Maddison's corner.

Leicester were much quicker to the ball in the second half and pressing high up the pitch. Maddison should have scored after bundling his way through on goal but skied his finish over.

A very nervy ending to the game for Chelsea who looked vulnerable defensively. Jamie Vardy dragged wide from a decent position whilst Youri Tielemans' fierce shot was beaten away by Kepa Arrizabalaga

Summary

A game of two halves as Chelsea were by far the better team early on and deservedly went in front but Leicester really improved after the break and could have even won it in the end.
