Chelsea bag another win against Leicester by beating them 3-1 as Potter’s side try to find their groove to keep winning matches.
Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz, and Mateo Kovacic scored goals as Chelsea defeated Leicester City 3-1 on Saturday in the Premier League to keep their recent run of good fortune going.
Kai Havertz stole the show with an outstanding performance up front, and Enzo Fernandez was instrumental in the midfield.
Chilwell drew first blood in the 11th minute as he spectacularly volleyed one in the back of the net, beating goalkeeper Danny Ward at his near post.
In an action-packed first-half both, Chelsea’s Jao Felix and Leicester’s Dewsbery-Hall both rattled the woodwork.
In the 39th minute, Felix lost control of the ball in his own half, and Patson Daka hammered a beauty in the bottom corner by putting the ball past Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Leicester continued to press forward after the equalizer, but it was Chelsea who scored just before half-time when Enzo Fernandez showed brilliance and assisted Havertz with a delicate chip, which the forward lobbed over the head of Ward and into the net.
The hosts did not let up in their intensity after the break and were denied an equalizer by a goal-line clearance from substitute Conor Gallagher, before Dewsbury-Hall missed a vital opportunity for the hosts to level.
Mudryk was looking bright for Chelsea. He had a goal ruled out for offside. He overcame the 007 memes (0 goals, 0 assists, 7 games) that were trending on the internet as he provided the assist for Kovacic who volleyed to secure Chelsea’s 3 points.
After a dismal run of two wins in 15 games, Graham Potter’s side have now won three successive matches in all competitions and are 10th in the league table with 37 points, while Leicester are placed 16th.
