Premier League leaders Chelsea got back to winning ways with a convincing 3-0 demolition of Leicester City on Saturday.
Antonio Rudiger and N’Golo Kante scored in the first half to put Thomas Tuchel’s side up at the King Power Stadium, before Christian Pulisic added a third after the interval. With Ben Chilwell hitting the crossbar and the offside flag ruling out three more goals in the second half, the European champions could have had more.
The London based club responded with vigour, having had two weeks to dwell on their disappointing stalemate with struggling Burnley the last time out. The frustration for Leicester continues, with Brendan Rogers’ team still lacking the spark that brought them two fifth-place finishes and an FA Cup triumph in the past two seasons.
Manchester United run of poor results continued at Vicarage Road as Watford beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 4-1 thanks to goals from Joshua King, Ismaila Sarr, Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis and a consolation from Donny Van De Beek.
