Alonso scores as Chelsea draw with Leicester
Marcos Alonso scored as Chelsea drew their penultimate match of the season.
James Maddison gave Leicester an early lead with a lovely strike after four minutes.
The Foxes playmaker moved away from Thiago Silva and curled his shot beyond keeper Edouard Mendy.
Alonso equalised by volleying home Reece James’ superb cross-field ball.
Christian Pulisic made a total mess of a great chance to put Chelsea ahead in the second half, slicing wide of the target from eight yards out after being teed up by Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku himself missed a decent chance when he headed Hakim Ziyech’s cross wide.
Chelsea: Mendy, Chalobah, Silva, Rudiger, James, Jorginho, Kante (Loftus-Cheek 72), Alonso, Ziyech, Pulisic (Azpilicueta 72), Lukaku (Havertz 82).
Subs not used: Kepa, Saul, Barkley, Mount, Kenedy, Sarr.
