Leicester City were involved in an exciting Premier League affair this weekend, drawing to Chelsea in what was a fantastic display from both teams.

The game finished 2-2 after an end-to-end affair, with both teams showing their abilities to move the ball well.

The visitors scored the first goal, as a back-post corner was met by the onrushing Rudiger, whose powerful header did enough to beat Foxes’ goalkeeper Schmeichel.

The Foxes immediately struck back, as 10 minutes later a sweeping counter-attacking move by Brendan Rodgers’ side saw a Harvey Barnes deflected shot get the home team back on level terms, showing once again what a fine run of form the Leicester winger is on.

Ben Chilwell was next on the scoresheet, as an out of position Willy Caballero was punished by the defender’s excellent right-footed finish.

Leicester then conceded another set-piece with Mason Mount’s lofted free-kick once again meeting Rudiger’s head, giving the defender his first brace in English football.

Leicester finished the game strongly, Jonny Evans missing a free header from six yards out and Barnes was put through 1-on-1 against Caballero, missing what seemingly was the best opportunity for the home side to take the three points.

The Foxes will not rue their missed chances too much though, as the eight-point gap between themselves and Chelsea still remains, as well as a 12-point buffer for a coveted Champions League spot.

Leicester go into the mid-season winter break with a worrying lapse in their recent form. As a result, the Foxes hoping they’ll be firing on all cylinders for their next match against Wolves which is set to take place next Friday on Valentine’s Day away from home at Molineux.
