Leicester City 1-2 Chelsea: N’Golo Kante scores against his former club as Eden Hazard returns

Chelsea stood firm to see off a late Leicester challenge as the Premier League champions climbed into the top three with a third straight victory.

Both sides struggled to find a finishing touch before Alvaro Morata nodded in Cesar Azpilicueta’s searching pass to put Chelsea ahead before half-time.

The visitors pressed home their advantage after the break as former Foxes midfielder N’Golo Kante, gifted time and space, drilled home low from 30 yards.

A foul by Thibaut Courtois gifted Leicester a penalty that Jamie Vardy converted, sparking Leicester into life in a frenetic final half-hour.

But it was Chelsea substitute Willian who came closest to adding to the scoring with a curling strike just wide of the post.

Leicester, who slip to 17th, have now lost six of their last seven home games against Chelsea.
