Heavyweight Leicester City welcomed relegation candidate Chelsea, in a fixture which was highly anticipated to play a key role in title race this season. Ranieri’s side had a glorious opportunity to sit on top of the table, while a win for Chelsea would have been a great morale booster to turn their fortune this season.
As expected Leicester took lead in first half and played like the leaders, whereas Chelsea, on the other hand, were ordinary in their performance and started poorly as they lacked urgency, were slow and sluggish, and had no tempo in their play.
Here are the five talking points from the encounter.
Best of all
Mahrez had a fantastic game, setting up a goal for Vardy and then creating a goal for himself with his quick feet which left Azpilicueta helpless. He was always a threat with his pace and tricky as Chelsea shifted to 3 at the back.
Remy who came on as a substitute and scored the only goal for Chelsea, played well and showed a direct approach to level the scores. His presence was felt in the box as few half chances were not converted to goal by Costa.
