Chelsea wingbacks on fire once again
Leicester City opened the Premier League weekend after another international break. This match was the early game on Saturday at King Power Stadium. By winning this game, Chelsea temporarily extended their lead on top of the table to six points on the second place. With West Ham United playing the 3pm kick-off the six points lead might only takes a couple of hours, but nevertheless it shows that Chelsea is in the middle of a very good season, in which that should be considered as one of the biggest title favourites.
Backs vital for Chelsea
The backs at Chelsea have proven to be the most important players for the Blues so far this season. Not only defending, but even more so in the attack. Reece James and Ben Chilwell are currently the two most influential players in the Chelsea side. A corner by Ben Chilwell led to the 0-1 for Chelsea. A little before the half hour mark, N’Golo Kante doubled the lead after he received the ball from Reece James. Another Chelsea game where both wingbacks got involved in a goal.
The second half started with a comfortable 0-2 lead for Chelsea. Leicester City never really got into this game. They haven’t been in the form they showed in the last few seasons. The second half was also dominated by Chelsea, who got the third goal from the bench. Where Hakim Ziyech and Cristian Pulisic came off the bench to link up for the 0-3. Chelsea scored a few more, but VAR ruled all of them off for offside. The score could have been bigger for Chelsea, but they are happy with the three points.
