  • 73'

    Huge chance! Madison receives the ball in the box and the ball sticks to his feet as the Chelsea tackles come in. Eventually he can get the shot away but he blasts it over the bar.

  • 71'

    SUBS: Kovacic and Willian will come on for Jorginho and Pulisic.

  • 64'

    Great break from Leicester as Perez, Vardy and Maddison link up. Perez feeds Vardy on the diagonal but it just has too much pace on it and runs out for a goal kick.

  • 61'

    SUB: Abraham comes on for Giroud.

  • 56'

    There is a break in play as Pedro requires treatment.

    Chance! Madison drives forward with the ball and the ball is deflected into the box. Madison gets it again, goes around the rushing keeper, and can't find a Leicester team mate and the ball is cleared.

    YELLOW: Jorginho is booked for a bad tackle on Tielemans.

  • 31'

  • 30'

    SCORE UPDATE: Chelsea 1-0 Leicester.

  • 26'

    Close! Giroud flicks a pass from Emerson back for Kante in the middle. He strikes, but it just takes a nick off the foot of the incoming Fuchs to see it squeeze past the post.

  • 21'

    Save! Pedro finds Azpilicueta down the right-hand side of the area, and he plays a nice, floated pass into the box. Mount's header is easily saved.
