The opening minutes of Chelsea vs. Leicester City saw a complete offensive effort.
The action is interrupted when Maddison requires medical attention after an errant tackle by Enzo, while Lineker is cheered enthusiastically by supporters in the Kop.
The final kick of the half at the King Power Stadium is when Havertz does his miracle. A fantastic battle thus far.
Kai Havertz’s goal was superb!
When Ward appears, Fernandez calmly lobs the ball over him after receiving the ball from Havertz in the penalty area. Very unassuming and magnificent.
There had been little sign of a City comeback until now, but Daka flicks the ball into Iheanacho’s path and he’s in. There’s a little too much speed on the ball, and Kepa gets out first to block. They collide, and Kepa is injured.
Patson Daka scores an unexpected equalizer for Leicester.
Joao Felix gets the ball on the edge of his own box, tries some trickery but is dispossessed, Daka picks it up and goes for goal from outside the box. And it’s past Arrizabalaga!
It’s been an exciting first half, with City clearly the better team. However, when Chelsea is on, it is very easy for them to create excellent chances, and the Havertz goal resulted in boos at the half.
Joao Felix extends Chelsea’s lead… However, there is a Var check and he is ruled offside. The goal will not stand.
The visitors retake the lead on the stroke of half-time. Havertz handle it.
The atmosphere was strangely subdued as it went in, but it was a lovely goal.
Havertz broke the offside trip to dink over Ward after Enzo clipped a ball over the top of the City defense.
That’s a huge setback for City, who were clearly on top.
Chelsea capped off a perfect week with a 3-1 victory over Leicester, easing the pressure on head coach Graham Potter even further.
Following a much-needed three points against Leeds last weekend, the Blues advanced into the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday with a turnaround victory over Dortmund.
Their good form continued when Ben Chilwell put them ahead early against his former club, but Patson Daka equalized with a fantastic 25-yard effort that flew into the bottom corner.
