Premier League match report: Chelsea 2-1 Leicester City

The #Bengals may be settling down for the offseason, but with Burrow and Chase they know they’re set offensively for a while. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

After 23 seasons in the #NFL, and despite heavy links with the #49ers, Tom Brady announces his (second) retirement.

Not the way he would’ve wanted to go out, but for a 44-year-old who finished 3rd in passing yards this year, these numbers are sensational. ๐Ÿ‘‡

Chelsea win crucial top-four clash

Chelsea gained revenge over Leicester and took a major step towards Champions League qualification after they won 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

A top-four place is now in Chelsea’s hands but Leicester are now facing missing out on the top-four on the final day for the second successive season.

The match

Thomas Tuchelโ€™s side were fired up for the occasion after they lost the FA Cup final on Saturday 1-0 and dominated the first half without scoring.

In front of a raucous crowd for the first time this year, Chelsea played at a ferocious intensity that Leicester couldnโ€™t match.

Timo Werner had two goals ruled out in the first half, one for offside and another for handball.

But two minutes into the second half, Chelsea eventually got their goal and it was richly deserved. A Ben Chilwell corner was inadvertently flicked on by Jamie Vardy and Antonio Rudiger bundled the ball home from close range.

VAR had cruelly disallowed a late Chelsea goal in the final, as well as a Werner goal in the first half, but it was on the right side of the hosts this time as a penalty was given for a needless foul by Wesley Fofana on Werner.

Jorginho dispatched the penalty with swagger and Chelsea were easing to a win.

However, Leicester were given hope when substitute Kelechi Iheanacho slotted home after Wilfried Ndidi dispossessed Mateo Kovacic.

They did have the opportunity of snatching a point but Ayoze Perez blazed over in the 90th minute.


What does it mean?

Chelsea need just a win against Aston Villa on the final day to seal a top-four place.

Leicesterโ€™s fate isnโ€™t in their own hands. They need Liverpool to drop points against either Burnley or Crystal Palace, or to beat Spurs by at least three goals.
