It was a game of tactics at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night, and the team with the better tactics ended up taking all three points.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers led his team out to victory and the Foxes looked like a well drilled side at home.

Leicester City took an early lead courtesy of Wilfred Ndidi via a corner kick, and Rodgers has revealed how he had to change his tactics in the first half when Chelsea were pulling the strings at some point in the first half.

Rodgers said after the game: “It was a very good performance. As a team collectively we were excellent. A real threat. Harvey Barnes was sensational, really exciting.

“Last 15, 20 minutes of the first half, they started getting some combinations, so we changed our defensive shape in the second half and still looked very dangerous in moments. I thought we really deserved it.

“The players have won a lot of games against the big opponents. They showed a lot of maturity. It was a really good, professional performance.”
