Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger scored a brace for the Blues in our 2-2 draw against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Rudiger celebrated his first goal with some dance moves as his header put Chelsea in front. However, his second goal levelled the scores for the Blues as Leicester City had gone 2-1 ahead.

Rudiger refused to celebrate the second goal but rather he hurriedly took the ball from the net and ran to the centre circle for play to resume.

Explaining why he refused to celebrate, the German international said: “It was 2-2 and there was still time so I wanted to push everyone.

“Ben Chilwell had problems [for the goal] because we were two against one against him so it was difficult for him to defend, but the header I think was a good one.”

Chelsea are now beginning to threaten from set-pieces and Rudiger has revealed that the hard work in training is now paying off as he also hailed the delivery of Mason Mount.

He said: “Definitely it was time [I scored] and we were training very hard on these type of set-piece situations, and in this game it came my way.

“I always try to be dangerous in this situation and this game the crosses from Mason [Mount] were good and I felt confident.”
