Leicester 0 - 3 Chelsea:  Dominant Blues Ease Pass Clueless Leicester

Thomas Tuchel's men could have had an early lead through Ben Chilwell, whose effort thundered away off the bar - much to the delight of his former supporters.

After dominating possession, the lead did come in the 14th minute as Antonio Rudiger rose highest to head home from Chilwell's corner.

Against the run of play, Leicester did have the ball in the back of the net through Ademola Lookman, but his 25th minute strike was correctly ruled out for offside.

Just a few minutes later, Chelsea had a goal of their own as N'Golo Kante fired home a beautiful effort from range to give Thomas Tuchel's side a 2-0 lead which could hardly have been more comfortable in the first half.

A change of system made Leicester somewhat more competitive early in the second, but Chelsea still had the next big chance. Chilwell ran on to a pull-back from Callum Hudson-Odoi and his low drive required a solid save from Kasper Schmeichel.

Leicester's first real chance came shortly after the hour mark, when Daniel Amartey's long-range drive needed a diving save from Edouard Mendy to keep out.

Chelsea's third came from Christian Pulisic who, minutes after missing a chance created by Hakim Ziyech, combined with his fellow substitute to slot home with 20 minutes to go. Hudson-Odoi had the ball in the net just seconds after, but VAR rightly ruled it out for offside.

Pulisic had another ruled out for offside ten minutes later, before Reece James' own strike was wiped out for the same reason, forcing Chelsea to settle for just three goals.
