Second half goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa saw Chelsea defeat newly-promoted Leicester City 2-0 in the English Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Jose Mourinho’s men started off slowly with some lacklustre long range attempts with nothing to show for it. It was the new boys who looked the most likely to score and had a great chance through Riyad Mahrez who wriggled through the Blues defence and took a cracker of a shot that was saved superbly by Thibaut Courtois as they headed into the half-time break deadlocked at 0-0.
In the second the Londoners showed a bit more conviction and scored the opening goal of the match through the new boy Costa on his home debut. They doubled their lead not long after when Hazard cut in on the left to fire one low past Kasper Schmeichel to score his first goal of the season. Mourinho’s men began to press the Foxes a lot more creating more goal firing opportunities.
Returning hero Didier Drogba made an appearance off the bench to a massive cheer from the home fans and had a chance to add a third with one defender and the keeper to beat but was unable to convert. John Terry and his charges took control of the game giving Nigel Pearson’s boys no room to breathe and ran out comfortable 2-0 winners.
