Rüdiger scores twice as Chelsea held Leicester at King Power

Antonio Rudiger nets twice as Chelsea force Leicester City to a 2-2 scored draw in the Premier League encounter at King Power Stadium on Saturday early kick-off.

After a largely uneventful first half, the game came to life just after the break when  Rudiger headed the Blues in front of Mason Mount’s corner before Brendan Rodgers’ team levelled eight minutes later, Harvey Barnes’ effort deflecting off defender Reece James into the top-right corner.

And Rodgers looked to be heading towards a first win over Chelsea at the 14th attempt as a manager when Ben Chilwell swept a Youri Tielemans cross into the bottom left corner.

But Rudiger’s second headed goal of the day – from another Mount delivery – ensured Frank Lampard’s side claimed a point.The result means the Foxes stay third in the table, eight points above Chelsea in fourth.
