Chelsea did fanatic well as their visited King Power Stadium to take on a match part of Premier League against Leicester City on Saturday evening. The Blues were man-marking Leicester’s 5-3-2 build-up & transition into 4v3 in central areas each time as Mudryk made the #6 (Mendy).
Fernandez’s inversions also overloaded Leicester’s press. This is a coaching masterclass from Graham Potter.
Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell incredible dribbling skills and counterpress were much better than recent games played. It was impressing to watch him playing as he was lightening quick in every chance he had with the ball. In the 11 minutes of play, Kalidou Koulibaly crossed the ball to Ben Chilwell who volleyed it past Danny Ward opening the scoring for the Blues.
Chelsea fans went on in the social media to praise star after his impressively stunning game with some saying Ben Chilwell has scored his first goal against Leicester, in his 6th appearance against his former club. Stunning play and delightful finish. Chelsea fans believe Chilwell is one of the best players Chelsea have and Potter should always start him in all matches whenever fit.
The former Leicester man opened the scoring with a lovely volley which caught Ward out at his near post. Chelsea thought they had doubled their lead when Joao Felix swept home but it was ruled out for offside Moments later, the Portuguese forward gave the ball away and allowed Daka to sneak in and fire home to equalise.
However, Havertz’s late finish – a lovely dinked effort after a lofted ball from Fernandez – means Potter’s side have a one-goal advantage at the break. Plenty of action at the King Power Stadium but it was Chelsea who lead 2-1 after goals from Chilwell and Havertz.
