Chelsea beat Leicester by 3-0
It’s very worrying time for Leicester. they’ve found out that getting to the top is one thing but staying there is quite another.Each time Leicester have lost by three goals in the Premier League this season – 4-1 to Liverpool and Man Utd – they have gone to win their Champions League fixture in midweek.
The champions are beaten, but the former champions are up to fifth in the league with a slick performance.
Premier League top scorer Diego Costa continued his fine start to the season as Chelsea comfortably defeated champions Leicester City 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.
The Chelsea striker was on target within seven minutes with his seventh strike of the league campaign.
A Leicester comeback never looked likely and they failed to register a shot on target in a dreadful display, although only the post prevented a Luiz own goal after the break.
Victor Moses then sealed Chelsea’s victory late on after a great flick from substitute Nathaniel Chalobah, giving Antonio Conte a welcome result in a week that has seen him fend off speculation over his future.
“It was a special game. Last season, I enjoyed it with Leicester. Now I am a Chelsea player so I am happy to win.”-N’Golo Kante
“I play more inside the pitch. I don’t stay wide. I play this system with the Belgium side. We have more freedom. And we can win the ball back. It is good for us.”-Eden Hazard.
Eden Hazard held two fingers aloft on each hand after scoring his goal – it was in recognition of the Chelsea number 22 Willian, who is in Brazil after the death of his mother.
“My celebration was for Willy. He lost his mother and we are thinking about him. We hope he can come back stronger.”-he said.
“We came up against a good Chelsea team together and we weren’t ready for it. We have to take responsibility as players. But we can’t dwell on it. We have an important game on Tuesday night, which will be hard if not harder. We need to stop this rot.
“You can’t concede an early goal – again from a set-piece. We got back into games on various occasions last season but we aren’t doing it at the moment.
“We work on set-pieces and know our jobs. It is no different from last year – we just need to follow our men. It is not just set-pieces, though, it is all over the park”- Marc Albrighton said.
