EPL: Rüdiger’s brace earns Chelsea one point at Leicester

Antonio Rudiger’s two headers earned Chelsea a point at the King Power Stadium as the Blues and Leicester played out an entertaining Premier League draw in a see-saw encounter

The result means the Foxes stay third in the table, eight points above Chelsea in fourth.

After a largely uneventful first half, the game came to life just after the break when Antonio Rudiger headed Chelsea in front from Mason Mount’s corner.

Brendan Rodgers’ team levelled eight minutes later, Harvey Barnes’ effort deflecting off Blues 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.
