    Did that not hit Soyuncu's hand?

    Soyuncu saved a goal there, what a hit by Mount.

    So an inadvertent handball on offense is a goal overturned, but there isn't even a check on a defensive handball blocking a shot?

    Feels like 80% of Chelsea attacks begin with Kante pushing the ball up field and then running out of good options. I'm a big fan of Kante, but he should hardly be the creative hub of your team's attacking play.

    He’ll probably never play like an80 million dollar keeper but he’s better than this Chelsea team

    Leicester are wasting so many chances here...would only be typical for them to concede late.

    I’m no Kepa fan at all, but he’s neither bad nor great. He had a number of big stops Wednesday. He’s young and a bit inconsistent for me, which makes sense. But he’s also not playing behind anything I would be confident in

    I disagree, he's not shown to be anything better than a mid-tier Premier League keeper so far, he's certainly not world class or deserving of starting for a best of the best club.

    Chelsea were just a mess at the back. And they couldn't keep the ball in the midfield. They were bad.

    Brutal officiating there. Clearly a foul by Christensen and Vardy was in for a winner.

    Chelsea seem like a weird mishmash of players out there, gonna be a long season for them.

    So what's the expectation here for Chelsea - if they're 7th on Christmas Day..is Lampard OK or a goner?

    They were ****ing awful in the second and could've had 3 or 4 in the first.

    Depends what their expectations are. If they are expecting him to make the CL or nothing, he could be gone. If they are committed to a long term project, he'll be fine.

    Vardy threw a shoulder into his sternum. Absolute right call.

    It was absurd. Christiansen turned, hugged him and body slammed him and Vardy gets called. Should let go Vardy in for advantage.

    On another note, Chelsea's midfield is a joke outside of Kante.

    Vardy's shoulder only went into Christensen because Christensen jumped in front of Vardy and hugged him.

    Still irked by Soyuncu's handball that went unchecked by VAR.

    I think Vardy’s shoulder went into him first, but that itself it’s a foul, right?
