Chelsea hosted Leicester City at Stamford Bridge and cruised on to victory within the first 35 minutes of the game with 2 goals, one from Diego Costa and one from Eden Hazard respectively. Leicester city improved their game in the second half, but it was too little coming too late. Chelsea grabbed another goal through Victor Mosses towards the end that effectively sealed the game in Chelsea’s favour with a score 3-0. Here are 5 major talking points from the Chelsea vs Leicester City tie.
1) Chelsea’s 3 at the back continues to impress
Chelsea’s second game with 3 at the back. After back to back defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal, Conte had to do something different and shake up the squad. That main change was the formation change, with 3 at the back. This is the second game, where he has employed that formation and both the games Chelsea has won. Victor Mosses and Alonso look as if they have been tailored for this formation (I know it’s early times, but still).
