Leicester City was placed first in the Premier League table on Tuesday at the expense of a Chelsea that does not raise its head and in which the figure of Frank Lampard (2-0) is already in danger.
The ‘Foxes’ are first, although with more games played than Manchester United and Manchester City after a splendid performance at the King Power Stadium in which they took advantage of an inoperative Chelsea.
Very soon everything was lost in the face of Chelsea, who took the lead after six minutes, when Ndidi hooked a shot in the front that sneaked into the goal of Edouard Mendy, who made the statue, after touching the ball in the stick.
Leicester tied up Chelsea at will and James Maddison, the sensation of Brendan Rodgers’ team, coaxed a shot off the crossbar that could have been 2-0.
But the ’10’ was predestined to see the door and, after the VAR decreed that there had been no penalty in favor of Chelsea in a foul outside the area, in the subsequent play a pass to the back of the defense found only Maddison that with the right and first he made the second of Leicester.
Rodgers’ men held on in the second half and saw how they annulled a goal for offside to Timo Werner to tie up three points that put him ahead of the Premier with 38 points, one more than United and three more than Manchester City.
Chelsea is off the hook from the European positions and is eighth with 29 points, five behind the Champions League.
