The Blues grabbed all three points marching towards the Premier League title with a convincing win at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday after an impressive second-half performance.
In a game, where the relegation-threatened Leicester City tried to build pressure over the table toppers, were rewarded with an opening goal in the first half after a defensive error. Chelsea’s defense was unable to close out an incoming ball into the box and winger Mark Albrighton, who was lurking in the box, finished it off in a cool fashion.
It was a revival for Chelsea in the second half as they hit back right from the start with an equaliser by Drogba after a low cross from Ivanovic. Chelsea then looked unstoppable and kept searching for the winner and finally took the lead from a corner via a John Terry goal. The third goal was added to the score sheet after a stunning strike from Ramires with an assist by Fabregas in the closing moments of the game.
Here are the things we learnt from the entertaining away win:
A Refreshing Victory
After the stalemate in the weekend at the Emirates, a win was required for us to get a hand on the Premier League trophy and that is precisely what happened. After trailing at the end of the first half, Chelsea unleashed total fury on Leicester City, which resulted in the 3 second-half goals and also showed that we are not the so-called “boring” side after all.
Willian – The Unsung Hero
Willian was electrifying in the field last night, galloping like a horse, making progressive runs as he is slowly turning into perfect Premier League material. He might not have had any numbers to show for his contributions to the game, but indeed, he was more than indispensable for the Chelsea side yesterday.
The Mysterious Half-Time Talk
Chelsea were down going into half-time owing to a poor defensive display and it looked like the party was going to be delayed. However, it might have been the case of a strong half time talk from a certain Portuguese, that kick started a thunderous comeback with flair and ensured that we came out with the maximum points out of the King Power Stadium.
The Trophy Is Coming Home!!
Three points, that’s it. A win against Crystal Palace in front of our home crowd on Sunday will see Chelsea crowned champions of England!! Looking at the current form of the team, 3 points on Sunday afternoon shouldn’t be a problem.
So it all comes down to this, a chance of sealing the Premier League with 3 matches to go. A title that Stamford Bridge has been waiting for since the last 5 years is set to return under the best of circumstances.
