Join us live as Leicester aim for the top spot against Chelsea!

LIVE
90'
FT: Leicester were in control from start to finish as Chelsea, although improved from their last outing, couldn't do enough against a much stronger opposition. The scoreline could have easily have been 4-0 or more tonight, not that that will be much of a consolation for Lampard. Leicester lead the Premier League once again!
88'
Ziyech gets booked for pushing over the attacking player just outside the area near the touchline.
87'
Vardy comes off Iheanacho comes on. He's not had much to do tonight but he's done enough.
85'
Werner heads home from the cross but the flag goes up.
84'
Fofana sees yellow for bringing down Kovacic in a dangerous area.
82'
Leicester have another freekick out wide.
81'
Leicester have another corner as the pressure on Chelsea does not stop.
78'
Justin has been a pleasure to watch tonight, as have many Leicester players. Maddison has been subbed off now but he's a definite man of the match candidate barring a Werner hat-trick.
74'
Silva plays a long ball over the top for Abraham but Leicester are vigilant in defence and clear the ball with no trouble.
72'
Frustration setting in for Chelsea as James pushes over the defender after being beaten to the ball.
67'
Werner and Odoi come off for Ziyech and Werner.
66'
Chelsea almost looked threatening as they strung a dozen passes together in the final third. The attack ends with a poor cross into the hands of the keeper.
63'
Ziyech and Werner both begin to warm up on the sidelines.
62'
Chelsea have had much more of the ball but still haven't done much with it. Leicester once again being more efficient with the ball when they do have it.
56'
Tielemens blocked by Mendy after Vardy plays him on inside the box with a beautiful through ball on a counter attack.
53'
Leicester played some beautiful football with 3 passes inside the box. Albrighton turns, shoots and beats Mendy but was a fair way offside.
51'
Maddison crosses in a ball from the FK but Mendy comfortably collects a soft header that is sent his way.
51'
Kovacic booked for a hard entry in the centre of the pitch.
50'
Abraham heads directly at the keeper from a corner. An inch either side and he scores that.
49'
Justin should have scored. He heads the ball wide from an Albrighton cross. He was left unmarked and had time to line it up.
48'
Lampard is not looking very happy on the touchline... He knows his time is running out.
46'
Chilwell closes down Albrighton as he looks up to find Vardy. Ball is blocked out for a throw.
46'
Off we go!
45'
HT: Chelsea have their work cut out for them! Leicester have dominated the half and been much more efficient. 2-0 to Leicester!
45'
To call Chelsea lacklustre may be a tad harsh, this Leicester side is impressive and Chelsea look better than they did against Fulham.
44'
Abraham takes out Fofana in attempting a wild jumping header to see off Chelsea's lacklustre half.
41'
MADDISON SCORES. Maddison is left alone in the box from a long ball delivered in from the half-way line and beats Mendy easily.
39'
Mason Mount fires the FK way over the bar.
38'
Scratch that, it was outside the box! Freekick.
37'
Chelsea have a penalty after a mistimed tackle from Evans.
34'
Vardy 1 on 1 with Mendy just gets a fingertip to the shot to push it clear of goal.
33'
Hudson-Odoi fires wide from inside the box. He had to run onto the cross but he should have probably bagged that one.
32'
Incredible scenes as Schmeichel runs up to the half way line to clear Mendy's GK with a diving header.
30'
BArnes and Justin work together to create space and win a corner from a James deflection.
28'
Havertz booked for a cynical foul on Barnes. He had him beat and didn't want him to continue his run.
25'
Albrighton fires one in from way out the box is made to look much more difficult to save than it probably was by Mendy.
21'
Havertz blocked by Evans in the area after a beautiful through ball beats at least 2 LEI defenders.
19'
James makes a peircing run into the area and Schmeichel had to put his thundering shot wide from a tight angle.
16'
Leicester are running rings around Chelsea. A 2-0 scoreline in the next few minutes would come as no shock.
15'
Maddison beats Mendy but hits the bar with a thunderbolt of a shot from outside the area.
14'
Chilwell messes up a 1-2 with Abraham just moments after messing up a clearance with Mendy. Poor communication from Chelsea so far!
12'
LEI have won all 9 games they have scored first in this season, not a good sign for Chelsea...
11'
H-O whips in a cross and Abraham tees up a volley in the box that is deflected just in time to avoid a shot on target.
9'
Leicester keeping up the pressure on Chelsea and have another corner. They already scored from one.
5'
LEICESTER GO AHEAD! Ndidi put LEI ahead after smashing in a deflection from the corner outside the area. What a strike.
3'
Harvey Barnes makes an excellent run and almost beats James who just gets a touch to through the player's run off.
2'
Scramble in front of the LEI goal as Abraham follows up on a long ball that caught out their high defensive line.
1'
We are off!
Prev.
Lampard speaking to the press is praising this Leicester side and rightfully so. Leicester have almost flown under the radar when it comes to talks of a title race.
Prev.
West Ham have just won which means that Chelsea need a win to reclaim 7th!
Prev.
Chelsea opt for Hudson-Odoi and Abraham in as Giroud isn't even on the bench!
Prev.
Leicester go top with a win tonight, at least for a moment, whereas Chelsea would at least be with striking distance of the top four.
Prev.
CHELSEA XI: Mendy, James, Thiago Silva, Rudiger, Chilwell, Havertz, Kovacic, Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Abraham, Pulisic.
Prev.
LEICESTER XI: Schmeichel, Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Justin, Ndidi, Tielemans, Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy.
