Chelsea Beat Leicester To Brighten Title Win

Chelsea stand one win away from the Premier League title after mounting an impressive comeback to beat Leicester City at the King Power Stadium Wednesday.
Jose Mourinho’s side needed to call on all their reserves of quality and resilience to overcome Leicester City’s fiercely determined challenge which earned them a deserved first-half lead through Marc Albrighton.
As expectations of another victory on the road to Premier League safety rose in a thunderous atmosphere, Chelsea responded in the style of champions-elect to earn the victory that means they will be crowned champions for the first time in five years if they beat Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Didier Drogba restored equality early in the second half and further goals from captain John Terry and Ramires wrapped up a win that was testimony to the qualities that have put Chelsea on the brink of glory.
And in a swipe at the Arsenal fans who criticised their approach in Sunday’s goalless draw at the Emirates, the visiting fans roared their team to the final whistle with chants of “boring, boring Chelsea”.
This defeat ends Leicester’s run of four straight wins that has lifted them out of the relegation places but there was enough contained within this display to maintain manager Nigel Pearson’s belief that they will retain their Premier League status.
