English Premier League Report: Chelsea v Leicester City 13 January 2018

Chelsea stayed in third place, behind second-place Manchester United on goal difference and 15 points off leaders Manchester City.

His desire to sign a forward in the January transfer window has been strengthened by Zlatan Ibrahimovic's relapse in his recovery from his serious knee injury.

Vardy failed to hit the target from unsafe positions twice in less than a minute, before Wilfred Ndidi's free header following a corner was parried brilliantly by Thibaut Courtois and Antonio Rudiger stopped Aleksandar Dragovic slotting home on the follow-up.

Lanzini, whose only previous goal this campaign was in November, scored twice in five minutes during an impressive second period for the Hammers, who climbed above Huddersfield in the Premier League table.

Unusually Leicester had 53.6 per cent of possession in the first half, as Wilfred Ndidi matched N'Golo Kante by winning the ball back on eight occasions, and Tiemoue Bakayoko struggled to get into the game either offensively or defensively.
