Chelsea fans loved Tiemoue Bakayoko’s performance vs Leicester

Chelsea moved to within a point of league leaders Manchester United on Saturday after a hard fought 2-1 victory away to former champions Leicester City.

Antonio Conte’s men put in a fine performance to pick up all three points at a tough destination, going two goals up thanks to Alvaro Morata and N’Golo Kante before Jamie Vardy pulled one back from the penalty spot.

After opening day defeat to Burnley, the Blues have now won their last three matches and look in excellent form ahead of a busy schedule of European and domestic football.

A pleasing aspect of their early showings for supporters has been the performances of their new summer signings with the likes of Morata and Tiemoue Bakayoko fitting into the team perfectly.

Indeed, Bakayoko again drew plaudits from fans after his display on Saturday, putting in a dominant off the ball midfield performance. It’s left some supporters already thinking that he’s an upgrade on former favourite Nemanja Matic.
