Chelsea 3-0 Leicester City as Costa, Hazard and Moses on target as Leicester suffer another defeat, Chelsea took on defending Champions Leicester City in the premier league game on Saturday afternoon and it took them just 7 minutes to take the lead when talisman Diego Costa scored inside first seven minutes to put Chelsea in lead. Leicester City struggled to get into the match and found themselves 2-0 down when Eden Hazard scored second of the day for Chelsea.
Costa and Hazard were instrumental in securing a third win from Conte’s first four home games, Chelsea condemned defending Premier League champions Leicester to a fourth consecutive away defeat with a dominant display at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues were ahead inside seven minutes when Nemanja Matic flicked on Eden Hazard’s corner for Diego Costa to smash home. A David Luiz free-kick struck the post, before Pedro played in Hazard, who rounded Kasper Schmeichel to slot in.
Luiz hit his own post when clearing a cross, but Victor Moses’ finish after a one-two with substitute Nathaniel Chalobah completed the scoring.
Leicester, who left Riyad Mahrez on the bench for the first time in 36 league games, failed to register a shot on target as they struggled to cope against Chelsea’s aggressive pressing and quick passing. Defeat leaves Claudio Ranieri’s side with eight points from their first eight games – the joint second lowest haul by a defending Premier League champion, along with Chelsea’s team of last season
