Sweet revenge as Chelsea beat Leicester City to move third on the log

Chelsea beat Leicester City 2-1 on Tuesday evening in a Premier League tie to move to third on the log. 

Chelsea took the lead through Timo Werner who bundled the ball over the line from close-range. Schmeichel scrambled it away but he got there too late but there was a VAR check. The replays showed Werner handled the ball before scoring and the goal didn't stand. 

At the start of the second half, Chelsea saw the back of the net. The Blues were given a corner that was well delivered and Rudiger rose high to head home, Stamford erupted. 

Penalty

Fofana brought down Timo Werner and VAR was checking for a possible penalty. The check was complete and the Blues were awarded the penalty. Jorginho stepped up to take it and sent Schmeichel to the wrong side. 

Iheanacho goal

Out of nowhere, it was game on as Chelsea conceded after losing possession in their own defensive third. Ndidi robbed Kovacic then working the ball infield to substitute Iheanacho, who was in acres of space inside the Chelsea box, and slid a cool finish into the bottom corner. 

The Blues now jump above Leicester into third, leaving the Foxes to sweat on Liverpool's remaining results. The Champions League race is going to the wire.
