Leicester found themselves undone by two Foxes old boys this weekend as they slipped to a 3–0 defeat at home to Chelsea.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester side were suffocated right from the off in this one as Chelsea looked to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

That Blues’ hunger looked evident right from the start at the King Power with the visiting side tearing into a 2-0 lead just before the half hour mark.

England star Ben Chilwell lashed one against Kasper Schmeichel’s crossbar before the ex-Foxes full back whipped in a corner for Antonio Rudiger to power Chelsea in front.

And the déjà vu continued for Leicester before the break as everyone’s favourite superhuman N’Golo Kante popped up on the edge of the box and the Frenchman bulleted one past Schmeichel.

Leicester did look to step up after the break but again it was Chelsea who carried the threat as Schmeichel kept out Chilwell.

But with Leicester unable to make any real inroads a rampant Chelsea wrapped it up late on as Hakim Ziyech squared for Christian Pulisic to slot home his first goal since the opening day.

Full Time from the King Power Stadium it’s Leicester City 0-3 Chelsea
