Chelsea player ratings vs Leicester City

In a rematch of Saturday’s FA Cup final, Chelsea did everything but score in a dominant first half but finally made the breakthrough seconds after the interval through Antonio Rudiger.

Jorginho doubled their lead from the penalty spot after Timo Werner was fouled but Leicester made for a nervy ending when Kelechi Iheanacho capitalised on an error to score.

Dan Kilpatrick was at Stamford Bridge to run the rule over the home players…

Commanding and relatively untroubled until he was beaten by Iheanacho’s fine finish into the corner.

Kept Jamie Vardy in check again. Enhancing his England chances by looking so comfortable as a centre-half in the back three.

Not his fault but involved in the mess for Leicester’s goal, with his pass leaving Mateo Kovacic in trouble. Passing out was otherwise excellent.

The centre-back given license to roam and appeared to be enjoying himself. Got the all-important breakthrough goal.

Used the ball intelligently at wing-back and a big threat at set-pieces, helping to set up Werner’s second disallowed effort and Rudiger’s goal by jumping ahead of Vardy.

Forced off through injury after half-an-hour, having extended Kasper Schmeichel with a shot.

The midfield metronome kept a cool head to double Chelsea’s lead from the spot in a solid display against Leicester’s tough midfield two.

Worked hard and nearly scored against his former club in the first few minutes. His deliver and set pieces were a threat.
