Chelsea Clinch Leicester City Victory


Chelsea brought Leicester City’s four-game winning streak to an inevitable end on Wednesday night (29 April), all but securing the Premier League title for the Blues. Four games remain and Chelsea are 13 points ahead of Man City and Arsenal. Of course, the Gunners do still have a game in hand, but that will likely prove academic.

Although Leicester’s loss was inevitable in the UK football results last night, there was a surprise in the manner of the result. The Foxes had actually managed to take a 1-0 lead into the break after scoring just before halftime. However, Didier Drogba quickly equalised after the break to restore order.

John Terry then scored with his right from a corner in the 79th minute, putting Chelsea 2-1 up. Ramires then assured the Blues of all three points by adding a third in the 83rd minute. Chelsea can now clinch the league with a win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
