First-half goals from Antonio Rudiger and N’Golo Kante put Thomas Tuchel’s team in control inside the opening half an hour and there was no way back for an out-of-sorts Leicester City team.

Any hope of a surprise comeback was put to rest, when substitute Christian Pulisic made it three on 71 minutes with the only disappointment for Chelsea being an injury to midfielder Jorginho.
