Antonio Conte’s men had an easy home game as they defeated the defending champions easily, thanks to the goals scored by Costa, Hazard and Moses. Leicester had a horrible first half as Chelsea totally dominated the champions and ended up scoring within first 10 minutes of the game. Leicester, though came to life in the second half but that didn’t change the result nor did it affect the scoreline that much.
1.Diego Costa-the man in form
Diego Costa has found his shooting boots this season after a horrible campaign and now leads the race for the Premier League golden boot. The Brazil born Spanish striker scored in the 7th minute. Nemanja Matic flicked Hazard’s corner kick which found Costa completely unmarked and the Chelsea man made no mistake with only Schmeichel to beat from the close range.
The Spaniard has goals from 8 games and has been Chelsea’s main man in attack. He was all over the opposition today testing the keeper as well as trying to create oppurtunities for his teammates. Chelsea don’t have a good enough backup for Costa so he will remain the first name on the team sheet and his form is really important for Chelsea’s chances to finish in top four. Manchester United is next for Chelsea and surely if Costa maintains this kind of form Chelsea may grab all the three points from their rivals.
