  • Few players have stepped up a gear at Chelsea since Tuchel came in quite like Antonio Rudiger.

    Not only has the towering defender been dominant in his defensive duties but he’s also quickly become one of Chelsea’s most impressive dribblers from deep. He also seems to pop up with goals from time to time, as we saw on Tuesday night.

    Just when it seemed as though Chelsea’s front line were struggling to put the ball in the back of the net, Rudiger got on the end of a corner to bundle the ball into the back of the net. A big goal from an important player.

  • The industrious and relentless closing down of midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has been one of the most impressive aspects of Leicester City this season and it was once again on show for all to see at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

    Not only did the Leicester star dominate in the middle of the pitch but he also put his interception skills to good use in the 76th minute when he pounced on some poor Chelsea passing out of defence to steal the ball and set up Kelechi Iheanacho for a goal.

  • While Jorginho is by no means known as a consistent goal scorer from midfield, there was only one man for the job when Timo Werner was chopped down in the box in the 66th minute.

    The Italian defensive midfielder what at his very best throughout the match with surgical precision in his tackling and precise accuracy in his passing and that was clear for all to see when he tucked the ball into the bottom right corner from the penalty spot to give Chelsea a second and vital goal.
