Chelsea couldn’t take advantage of a Manchester City slip-up as Maurizio Sarri’s men lost out to the Foxes at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea hit the woodwork twice, while Jamie Vardy struck in the 45th minute to seal a 1-0 win for Leicester City.

See how the players fared in this game:

Kepa: Could barely do anything to save Vardy’s goal but made two good saves all the same. 6/10

Rudiger: Was having a good game until he let Vardy ghost past him for his goal. 5/10

Luiz: Played some stunning balls from deep in the first half but the team’s defending for Vardy’s goal was poor. 5/10

Azpilicueta: Had a lot of work to do on the right flank against Ben Chiwell, but he coped pretty well. Tried to provide an outlet on the right going forward but his crosses weren’t good enough. 5/10

Alonso: Had a below average performance today and could have made up for it with a late goal when left one on one with Kasper Schmeichel, but he only struck the woodwork. 4/10

Jorginho: Had a poor game and had to be subbed off. Couldn’t play any penetrating ball forward. 4/10

Kovacic: A decent performance from the Croatian. 6/10

Kante: Provided energy in midfield for Chelsea, but didn’t have the attacking quality to break Leicester City open. 6/10

Willian: Couldn’t take his chances, his corners were quite awful and he seemed out of the contest. 3/10

Pedro: Also had a poor game and didn’t provide enough attacking threat. Lost the ball that led to the Foxes’ goal. 4/10

Hazard: Rattled the bar in the first-half and couldn’t do much while playing as a striker. Had more joy when moved to the wing. 5/10

Subs

Loftus-Cheek: Couldn’t influence the game after replacing Kovacic. 5/10

Giroud: Provided a focal point after coming on but didn’t have a clear-cut chance to score. 5/10

Fabregas: Added more bite to Chelsea’s attack after replacing Jorginho. 6/10

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.
