Leicester midfielder James Maddison has claimed Leicester noticed a weakness in the Chelsea team and exploited it to beat Chelsea 2-0 on Tuesday night.

According to Maddison, Chelsea had a weakness of switching off during set-pieces and Leicester exploited that to score their first goal.

Maddison told Sky Sports: “We worked on it. We looked at Chelsea with little short corners and being creative.

“We [saw] they switch off sometimes from set pieces and we knew that was something we could pick on.

“We haven’t scored enough goals from set pieces. I’m pulling my hair out sometimes as the corner taker!

“You look at the stats that come up, it says ‘goals scored from set pieces, Leicester City bottom of the table’, so it’s really nice to see one come off. A bit of a relief, actually!”
