It was the first home game for Jose Mourinho as they played newly promoted side Leicester City at Stamford Bridge. Before the start of the game it looked a pretty simple affair for Chelsea to grab 3 easy points but things might have been different had Thibaut Courtois had not produced great saves and Leicester had finished their chances.
For a side like Leicester City to go head to head against the title challengers is something of an applaud especially considering Leicester have some of the most difficult first 5 games where they already played Everton for a 2-2 draw, lost to Chelsea and are going to play Arsenal, Stoke City and Manchester United, that are some difficult fixtures they got there and for them getting anything would be good out of those games and surely keep the confidence up as the season is long.
For Chelsea it was important to win this game which started to look questionable with a pretty boring first half. In the second half the game became lively with chances created at both the ends, at times it looked like Leicester will take a lead but Courtois denied them in a number of occasions same way Chelsea missed some chances. It was Chelsea’s new man Diego Costa who scored his second premier league goal and finally broke the deadlock after which the game looked all but over. At the later stage it was Eden Hazard who had a pretty good game and scored a superb goal to end any possibilities of a recovery by Leicester.
There was also a moment to live for Chelsea fans as their legend Didier Drogba returned home and it was a great standing ovation by Chelsea fans in the ground. Drogba played pretty well in the few minutes he got and he will surely be useful for the games Chelsea play England and Europe.
