Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday wasn’t exactly smooth sailing, but it was the kind of result and performance away from home you’d expect from a side that intend to be the strongest candidate in the Premier League’s title race this season.
Indeed, the King Power Stadium is a tough place to go and despite picking up just three points from their first four games, Leicester have started the season in decent form. So returning to west London with all three points, pushing themselves to third place in the table behind the two Manchester outfits, was certainly good going from the Blues.
Alvaro Morata grabbed his third goal of the season with an impressive leap at the back post, while N’Golo Kante doubled Chelsea’s lead against his former club just after half-time – before Jamie Vardy bagged a consolation goal from the penalty spot late on.
