Chelsea trashed Leicester City 3-0 away from home, and the Blues had to do it without their star striker, Diego Costa.

Stand-in captain Gary Cahill was proud with the team, and the way the front three held their own without Costa.

He said: “Diego is a massive player for us.”

“He wasn’t there today but we put Pedro, Hazard and Willian up there instead and it is hard to defend against talent like that.

“We are delighted with that result.

“That was a very professional solid performance by us after the Spurs game.

“We prepared well and deserved that. We had to prove it, it is all about bouncing back, and I’m proud that we produced a performance like that.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
