In the 70th minute of this afternoon’s Premier League encounter between Chelsea and Leicester, Antonio Rudiger grabbed his second of the game to draw his side level.
England international whipped a free-kick into the box from the left-flank and Rudiger produced an incredible leap to tower over his man and loop the ball into the back of the net.
Kasper Schmeichel had no chance of stopping this perfect header.
Take a look at the Germany international’s fine header below:

Rudiger’s two headers have also seen him achieve an impressive feat for the Blues for the first time since 2013:
