Chelsea came back from a goal down to register a 3-1 victory over Leicester City on the night and take a step closer to being crowned champions of England in their Premier League encounter at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday. Both teams traded blows in the opening exchanges in search of the opening goal. The wait took 47 minutes before the breakthrough came and surprisingly was from the home side, who have had a great run of games in an attempt to save themselves from the drop.
The goal scorer was Mark Albrighton who met a Jamie Vardy pass across the face of goal to score his first Premier League goal since 2011. This slender lead for the Foxes basically only lasted for the half-time break, give or take a few minutes, as the log leaders drew level when Branislav Ivanovic cut one back for Didier Drogba and the striker made no mistake as he beat young Kasper Schmeichel with a well-timed shot. Despite that equaliser the Blues did not have it all their way as they were held off brilliantly by Nigel Pearson’s men who put men behind the ball and were committed to defending their goal and secure the point.
However it was not meant to be as Chelsea skipper John Terry tapped one in from close range and a matter of minutes later Ramires fired a cracker from the edge of the box as Jose Mourinho’s men now find themselves a win away from the league title.
