Leicester City Beat Chelsea to Top PL Table

Leicester City pile more misery on Frank Lampard after beating Chelsea at the King Power stadium.

Goals from Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison seal all three points; one win in five in the league for Frank Lampard and Chelsea, who stay eighth after lacklustre display.

Brendan Rodgers’ side got off to the perfect start when Wilfred Ndidi’s strike gave them the lead in the sixth minute.

Chelsea thought they had been given a route back into the game when referee Craig Pawson adjudged Jonny Evans to have fouled Christian Pulisic inside the penalty area.

However, VAR intervened and overturned the decision, awarding the visitors a free-kick right on the edge.

Chelsea seemed to have grabbed a lifeline late on when substitute Timo Werner converted Hakim Ziyech’s free-kick.

But the German strayed into an offside position as Leicester kept their clean sheet intact.
