Leicester City came from behind to get a 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in Frank Lampard’s first home game in charge.

Mason Mount opened scoring for Chelsea before Leicester leveled through Wilfried Ndidi.

After a bright start against Leicester City, the Blues struggled in the second half against Leicester City.

With the game at 1-1, Leicester City midfielder James Maddison missed one of the best chances of the game with just Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to beat.

Maddison revealed after the game that he was disappointed Leicester couldn’t get all three points against Chelsea.

“We’ll watch that game back and be disappointed we didn’t come away with three points,” Maddison said. “The chance I had was massive.”

Maddison added: “On reflection last season, I scored seven goals last season and for me to reach that next level, which I know I can do, I have to score more goals and put those types of chances away because they don’t come around very often.”

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp believes Maddison changed the game for Leicester City.

“Maddison was the player who changed it for Leicester. He had everything. He got on the ball, picked up little pockets of space, played through balls. He’s 22, he has to play for England now, he’s ready,” said Redknapp.

“The best player on the pitch for Chelsea (Mason Mount) was an Englishman and the same for Leicester – they’re both young talents.”
