Leicester City lost 3-0 to Chelsea for the second time this season.  Claudio Ranieri lined up Leicester City in a new-look 3-5-2 system, but the Foxes lost 3-0 despite that, and Ranieri had some words of encouragement for his side.

Speaking to BT Sport after the match, an upbeat Ranieri said: “Today we made a good performance but we lost, and that is football.

“The changes I made were effective, if you take out the first two goals we played at same level as them. We played counter-attack and pressed high, but if we had not conceded those goals it would have been another match.

“We didn’t lose focus, we had to stay very attentive in the box because they move so well. With Pedro, [Eden] Hazard and Willian we did well but we should have closed the other players down better.”

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.
