Kelechi Iheanacho

Kelechi Iheanacho's late goal proved to be a consolation on Leicester's last visit to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea triumphed in the reverse fixture at King Power Stadium in November 2021, taking home the three points thanks to goals from Antonio Rüdiger, N'Golo Kanté and Christian Pulišić.

The Blues were also on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline in the last meeting at Stamford Bridge at the end of the 2020/21 campaign, which came three days after the FA Cup Final between the sides - which Leicester won. Rüdiger and Jorginho scored before Kelechi Iheanacho pulled one back for the away side.
