Alvaro Morata and Kante score a goal apiece as Chelsea defeated Leicester City 2-1 to move third on the premier league table.

Both sides struggled to find a finishing touch before Alvaro Morata nodded in Cesar Azpilicueta’s searching pass to put Chelsea ahead before half-time.

The visitors pressed home their advantage after the break as former Foxes midfielder N’Golo Kante, gifted time and space, drilled home low from 30 yards.
