The match started well at Stamford Bridge with an early Mason Mount goal and they controlled the first half without finding the all important second.

Leicester pegged them back in the second half and the Blues can count themselves lucky to escape with a point at Stamford Bridge.
So what did we make of the Chelsea players? Find out the player ratings below…
Kepa Arrizabalaga – 6
Had a shaky moment when he came to close down James Maddison early in the second half but was beaten by the Leicester man. Luckily Chelsea had enough players back to cover.
Made some important stops late on to keep hold of a point as Leicester looked likely to get a winner.
Cesar Azpilicueta – 5
He kept James Maddison quiet in the first half but struggled to deal with the forward after the break.
Most of the success Leicester found was coming down his side. He did a poor job of marking Ndidi when he scored the Leicester equaliser.
Andreas Christensen – 6
The Chelsea defence seemed to get worse as the match progressed and Christensen had real problems with Maddison and Vardy in the final 25 minutes of the match.
Kurt Zouma – 6
A better performance from Old Trafford last weekend but seemed to struggle later on in the match with Jamie Vardy.
Could have done better for the Leicester goal and was not quite able to get his head to the corner.
Emerson Palmieri – 7
Leicester were having all their joy on the opposite flank to Palmieri and he kept Ayoze Perez restricted to few touches throughout the match.
Jorginho – 6
In the first half, Jorginho and Kante were excellent and were stopping everything from getting to their centre backs.
This changed after the break and they had much more trouble with Youri Tielemans. He was taken off and replaced by Kovacic midway through the second half.
N’Golo Kante – 6
Had a good first half but Chelsea were dominated in the second half and all of the Blues back line struggled with the Leicester threat.
Christian Pulisic – 6
A promising home debut for the USA international as he worked hard to get involved in the match but ultimately did not see much of the ball.
Mason Mount – 8
Was very lively from the start for the Blues and scored early on. He chased down Wilfred Ndidi to win the ball and provided a good finish.
Mount could have added a second but put his header too close to Kasper Schmeichel.
Was one of the best players on the pitch.
