Christian Pulisic came off the bench and was back among the goals as Premier League leaders Chelsea extended their advantage at the top of the table to six points with a comfortable 3-0 win at Leicester City.
The visitors raced into a two-goal lead inside 28 minutes after Antonio Rudiger headed home from a corner, before N’Golo Kante fire in a left-footed strike from outside the box. The former Leicester man was sensational on his return to the King Power.
Leicester improved after the break, but Chelsea remained in control and put the game to bed, when Pulisic combined with fellow substitute Hakim Ziyech well and and scored in the 71st minute.
The victory, Chelsea’s fifth from six away league games this season, moved the Blues onto 29 points, six clear of second-placed champions Manchester City, who play West Ham United on Sunday.
"I'm happy with the effort, the quality. It was a deserved win."
"We have to have a bit of patience, and hopefully a happy end."
