Chelsea players assessed following win over Foxes.
After starting the season with a 3-1 win at Burnley, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho opted to name an unchanged starting XI for Saturday’s home game against Leicester City.
The Special One’s team selection was vindicated, as Chelsea battled to a 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge.
Diego Costa fired his side ahead just after the hour mark, before Eden Hazard made sure of the points on 77 minutes.
Here’s how Mourinho’s men rated:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois – 9/10
Had a surprisingly busy afternoon, having to make a decent stop to deny Riyad Mahrez and two saves to thwart David Nugent, all when it was 0-0, in order to earn his first ever Premier League clean sheet.
Right-back: Branislav Ivanovic – 7/10
Struggled against the pace of Jeff Schlupp early on, but improved as the game went on. He was a real threat going forward and he played a key role in Costa’s opener.
